It has been a hot minute since a new blog post has been written! Apologies, work has a way of consuming a hell of a lot of time through the busy months. Couple that with not having access to wi-fi for the last 5 weeks and it makes things a bit tricky. Luckily, we are at Stoney Lake Lodge this weekend for the 2018 Youth Fly Camp and things are off to a stellar start!
This event is for youth under 16 years old, and it is incredible to see such young people interested in the sport of fly fishing. This morning I was lucky enough to take two young anglers aged 11 and 12 on the water, after a few missed opportunities I got to watch their eyes light up as one nice rainbow after another hit the net.
Just being a part of the excitement of these young, keen anglers is incredibly rewarding. They had never experienced the thrill of the indicator dropping and feeling a heavy pull at the end, with 8 fish landed in the morning they were beside themselves.
The evening was capped off by an epic evening session with Douglas Lake Ranch Recreation Manager Brent Gill, excited to see what is to come tomorrow! September and October are going to bring some of the best stillwater fly fishing of the year, inquire via the contact form below to book a trip!
