Welcome to Getting Started - Fly Fishing for Trout on Southern Alberta Rivers. The goal of this 5 part series is to go over some important basics that all new fly anglers should know when getting into the sport, specifically new anglers in Alberta. Over the next few weeks we will be covering:
Week 1 - Introduction and Goals
Week 2 - Alberta Trout Species and Popular Water Systems
Week 3 - Suggestions for Fly Rod/Reel Set-Ups and a Starter Fly Box
Week 4 - Popular Southern Alberta Fly Fishing Techniques
Week 5 - Connecting with the Southern Alberta Fly Fishing Community and What are Some Next Steps
With the cost of an entry level fly rod setup dropping and the quality of these set-ups improving a large barrier to entry for the sport of Fly Fishing is being removed. Whats left as the biggest remaining barrier to entry is the relatively steep learning curve. This series hopes to flatten that curve as well as provide some outside resources that readers can use to learn on their own.
Thanks for checking this post out and look for next Tuesdays post where we will go into detail about Southern Alberta Trout species and some popular water systems in the area. Tight Lines!
