Mixing business and pleasure

I have been blog absent because Chris and I went on a little road trip vacation to Calgary. We lived there for seven years before coming to our senses and returning to the West Coast, but we left behind many friends who we miss dearly. Of course the vacation somehow had to involve our fishing obsession. We attended the Western Canadian Fly Fishing Exposition. Chris and I had a great time looking at the booths and demonstrations. It was a great way to compare all the different tackle in one place.

Chris also attended a fly workshop at Country Pleasures Fly Fishing that was run by April Vokey from Fly Gal.

The class was on Steelhead Intruders and Chris learned a lot, and produced this great fly.

Between Vancouver and Calgary we managed to do damage at 10 different fishing shops and came home with lots of goodies. We are planning a Steelhead excursion for this upcoming weekend, so we will see if that Pink Intruder is a lucky one.

  1. I'm sure that great pattern will do the trick Pink.

    Tight lines for the weekend!
