  1. Hello Everyone, First off, I am very impressed with this site and the information it holds. The pattern database is my favorite and you will start seeing my patterns pop up. I live in Alberta and have flyfished and fly tied for 15 years now. I have taught beginner and advanced flytying and rod building classes. I mainly fish for trout but since the move to Alberta I have started fishing for the other species this province holds. Alberta has quite the variety of fish. I have started a program, all on my own, for new/newer flyfishers, tiers and rod builders. Most people in the club cannot afford the vast majority of equipment needed to take part in all these activities. I have vets, divorcees, couples, kids, women, men all interested and taking part in what I offer. I do not charge anything but do take donations as most take up my offer because it is free. I have made many great tiers, rod builders and flyfishers out of the people that join and there all addicted like us. I have limited out my resources for donations so I am reaching further out for them. The rod building is the toughest one, I always look for the cheapest/discontinued blanks I can find. Same with materials etc. So I look for materials, hooks, tools, rods, and gear that one may not use like old vests, reels, anything to do with flyfishing, tieing and rod building. If you have a club that you donate to then please keep on donating. But if you have anything at all that one could use then please pm me. I grew up not having anyone to teach me untill 3 years after I started, never had a club, and if I did find one we could not afford lessons. I want to get as many people as possible to join the sport and support it. I always promote catch and release, no littering, safely handling fish etc. Thank you for your time and I am glad to be a new member of this site, looks like there are some great people and allot of information one could learn from. We can never stop learning thats for sure. Thanks, James :headbang:
