Grinding It Out

The last couple months has been a blur for us. We have traveled to Alberta 3 times for the business. Two of them were for the Calgary and Edmonton sportsmen shows put on by CNSS. A job well done by Laurie Paetz and her crew. The Calgary show featured the first preview of the Fly Fishing Film Tour. We presented one hour to give folks an idea of what it was all about. The full IP show is 2 hours in length and will be in various cities. Anyone can purchase the rights to present the FFFT in their area. If you are interested email us.

From Calgary it was back to BC for the Abbotsford BC Boat and Sportsmen Show. Les Trendall’s show was the first in BC to showcase the FFFT. A great showing for Sturgeon Slayers, Ruddocks Ranch and of course the FFFT. It was nice to see many faces I haven’t seen in a while at the show. Thanks again for stopping by. Thank you, Les for being the first to commit to us about 10 months ago to get the sportsmen shows rolling. Much Appreciated.

The tour continued back to Edmonton for the largest show in Western Canada. Over 50k people walked through the doors at Northlands. This 525k sq ft event is the largest by size in Canada. Again the amount of people was staggering and it was a positive experience for all those who attended. Through the 3 sportsmen shows we gave over $5000.00 away in prizes for those viewing the film tour. We would like to thank all of our sponsors for donating prizes and Country Pleasures for donating 2 guided trips for the Alberta Shows.

One observation which was very evident was the number of people checking out the Fly Fishing Section in these shows. Pieroway Rods did a great job with their casting pond in Calgary and Edmonton. Because of this they were able to attract people of all ages to learn how to cast. This was very positive and nice to see. It was also very cool seeing those in the industry work together! Pieroway and Sage shared the casting pond in Edmonton, of course it came down to who could put it in the cup first! I think Tommy T from Chromer Sport Fishing took that prize. So no bragging rights for the competing rod companies.

This week we are back to Alberta for the 4th time in 2 months. This time it’s for the Fishin Hole Outdoors Show. We will have our Ruddocks Ranch booth up and will be presenting the FFFT once a day for those who want to come check it out.

It has been a crazy couple of months and were are looking forward to hitting the water soon. We still have some spots left open for our Peter Morrison’s Fly Fishing Clinics at Ruddocks Ranch. Please email me if you are interested.

Again this year we are offering our Guaranteed catch for Sturgeon Fishing. This will be for the Lytton area. At least one per trip. We have been averaging between 5-20 per day in the area. The most staggering fact is that we are also averaging around 6 feet per fish. We are back in the canyon starting early April. Remember if you are shopping around nobody offers what we do on the river. Fact!! We do 10 hour guided trips,BBQ meals onboard or shoreside, CD in the mail with video and pics from the day and much more. Don’t compare apples to oranges when your looking to head out on the water.

What does all this mean? You get more value, and a complete guided experience. Show up, and we’ll take care of the rest. We look forward to having you out with us.
