We are beyond excited to have Phil Rowley host our Annual Stillwater Fly Fishing School! The school will be spread out over three days to give us enough time to cover some important key points, which is great for anyone looking to sharpen their Stillwater fly fishing game or anyone who are interested in broadening their fly fishing experiences.

About Phil Rowley: Phil has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to fly fishing in general but his focus is definitely on Stillwater Tactics and Fly Tying alike. Phil was a commercial tier for many years and his patterns are distributed by a ton of different vendors across North America, even in our own Stillwater flies at the shop. Phil is an author and a co-writer for a bunch of Stillwater publications that have stood the test of the industry and are a great resource for anyone wanting to learn more about Stillwater fishing.   

    Starting on Thursday, April 18th Phil will be instructing our regular Thursday Night Fly Tying night. Followed by a weekend of Stillwater School:

    Day One: Friday, April 19th will be an introductory night and classroom session from 7:00pm-9:30pm at the shop. Phil will go over:

    • Equipment Essentials
    • Aquatic Entomology and Fly Listing
    • How to Find Trout in Productive Stillwaters
    • How to Approach and Read a New Lake

    Day Two & Three: Saturday, April 20th to Sunday, April 21st our Stillwater school will take place at Arbour Lake, a private community lake in Calgary. These two days will include: 

    • Scheduled time on the water with Phil Rowley
