For almost 80 years, Lloyd Shea was an ardent fly fisherman, hunter and advocate for conservation. He worked tirelessly for organizations like the Alberta Fish and Game Association, Alberta Fly Fishers, Edmonton Trout Fishing Club and Trout Unlimited Canada (TUC) to improve fisheries in Alberta. After Lloyd passed away, Dave Johnston of The Fishin’ Hole proposed that the Edmonton Chapter of TUC hold raffles to raise money for conservation projects. Your efforts in events like this have enabled The Northern Lights Fly Tyers – Trout Unlimited Edmonton to be recognized for their excellent record of supporting conservation of Alberta’s fisheries and recreational angling.
Learn the basics of fly tying at our Beginners course. There will be lots of hands on practice where you can learn to tye under the guidance of our club members. See the flyer for more details. Beginners Seminar Flyer 13
