Another Season Underway

Next week is the start of a new season for me.  Clients are booking up fast and I've been busy tying up flies and getting equipment ready.  Although the lakes have really dropped this year, I'm hoping to have some good fishing and hope the same for my clients.  I've added another pontoon boat to my arsenal and lots of new terminal tackle.  Just recently, I finally took the plunge and got a few pages on facebook.  My personal page, the Fly Fishing Alberta page and my AlbertaStillwaters.Com page.  Drop by for some interesting articles and posts.  I've also revamped my Float Tube page on my information site Fly Fishing Edmonton.  I gave it some much needed updates, more tips and added an accessories section.  If you're looking to buy a float tube this year or to learn how to use the one you have, check it out for some great information.  And if you're looking for a one-on-one introduction to stillwater fly fishing clinic, feel free to drop me a line at  Hope to see you on the water.

Pimpin' Your 'Toon

With the warm weather arriving, the excitement of getting out for your first trip of the year is always at the front of your mind. Up here in north-central Alberta however, the lakes are still locked in ice. So not much to do but tie some flies and get your equipment ready. Or you could try Pimpin' Your 'Toon. There are many pontoon accessories available at your local tackle shop that will make your day on the water a little more simplistic and enjoyable. But what do you do if money's a little tight or you can't find exactly what it is that you envision? For the handy guy, why not just build it? While recently visiting the Alberta Outdoorsman fishing forum, I came across Badger's pimped out pontoon boat. Most of it he built with his own hands and out of his own imagination. Check out his ride here and let me know of some pimpin' accessories you've added to your 'toon.
