Default Looking for help in Leduc

I got a fly rod last year and having trouble getting the fly fishing game figured out. If anyone wants to help a newby, I've got a couple kayaks that we could fish out of. Also where's a good place to get some new flies?

I'm in the same boat so to speak. I'm in DT Edmonton, have the next two weeks off and was thinking about doing some shore casting around the parks or even as far out as Gibbons.

Default Hiking into the backcountry Wed June 29

Looking for a pal to go into the bush on Wed June 29. A deep day trip, start early and have a good day tossing streamers and dry flying. Bear country for sure, not trying to bring you along to buy me some time if yogi decides to charge haha. Just a pal to fish with, my dog is great but its a bit of a one sided conversation. PM me

For Visiononeill
I like to Fly Fish and willing to show you all the different place I know, which is most of Southern Alberta. Only one thing I do not have a vehicle, I am willing to split expenses. I am 53 and on disability, but I'm still able to get around fine. If you are interested you can email me at jgmcleod@live.ca, that makes it easier for myself. If fished the Crow, the Old Man, the Bow, some of the Red Deer. along the Mountains down to the border.
Anyway I know this is late and you might already have enough buddies, but I am available most of the time. James

What do you all think?
I would like to hook up with a new trout fishing partner. My old one moved to Nanaimo. Iím 80 years old, fly tier and fly fisher for 73 years. I live near Stony Plain.

I no longer have a boat, waders or a float tube so my one need in a partner is a two-person boat. Iím fit enough to help with the boat, rowing and well enough fixed to go 50/50 on all expenses.

Default the long haul

I have posted here without much previous success so here goes,

i am looking for fly fisher, trout bum, adventure seekers that are keen on the adventure trips. a day on the red deer is great, but SUP fishing a jungle river for 4ft snook and tarpon the size of you is exhilarating. spending 9 hrs cutting trails and hauling jon boats into pike lakes is rewarding

fly in raft out trips, remote pike fishing trips, hike in lakes and obscure rivers are my local passion and winter salt water trips are becoming an addiction.

i have a rough plan of a week in the florida everglades in january and a bahamas trip in march. all DIY as its much more of a challenge and rewarding.
(and $900 CAD for 8hrs of guided fishing is above me)(nothing against guides)

think river monsters without the budget

anyway i wont blab on here. if you're interested let me know

thanks
Colin

Hi everyone!

This is my first post... so here goes....

I am 25 years old and last year was my first year fly fishing, caught a couple of trout on the bow. I have so much to learn and I would love to go with someone that can teach me a thing or two. Or if you need a person to row i can also do that!

Thanks and let me know!
