Winter can be a tough time of year for avid fly fishers, lakes are frozen, rivers can be hazardous and the snow is usually flying.  Generally speaking, not the most comfortable fishing experience.  Between adventures braving the ice and snow, much time is spent tying flies.  As part of this experience, the fly fishing community and fishing clubs often gather to tie and learn new patterns.  We took advantage of one of these opportunities and attending Phil Rowley’s  Stillwater Fly Tying Class, hosted by the Central Alberta Fly Tying Club in Red Deer.  It was a great course that introduced a number of new techniques and patterns.  Some messier than others – as seen by the deer hair massacre below!  Thanks to Phil and the Central Alberta Fly Tying Club for a great day.  For anyone interested in staying on top of new patterns and techniques check out the links included above.
