Default Hello From the Northwest Territories

Hello to all NAFFF members:

I'm a long-time "lurker" on this board but only joined as a member recently.

I've been fly fishing for about twelve years--here in the NWT for whitefish and grayling, Alaska (coho in the Chilkoot and Chilkat rivers near Haines), BC (steelhead in the Bulkley near Smithers) and just came back from my first saltwater trip in Belize (bonefish fishing at Turneffe Flats). I also just started fly tying a couple years back and have managed to catch some salmon and steelhead on my own flies--a big thrill.

I feel like I'm finally moving beyond being a mediocre caster and getting the hang of things but still have much to learn, especially as someone who lives in the boonies and doesn't have access to a lot of fly fishing resources like fly shops, instructors, etc. I find these forums to be a great resource, have learned a lot, and look forward to learning more.

Scott

Hello Scott!

I believe you are our first NWT member. I have been around your country and can attest that it is amazing. Do you ever venture to the Yukon to fish? it would be great to see some pictures of your home area.

Any questions you ever have, please post them up. with your years of experience you may just want to know where to find some things but that is why we're here, you'll get answers.

Welcome to the forum Scott,

Ard

Welcome! I also look forward to seeing some pictures of where you fish, including Belize. Traveled many other places to fish?

Dear God, hadn't thought about living there for Decades. Short assignment for Dad, or so we thought; 'if it broke (machinery) he could fix anything.' (Lumber mills)

Didn't have the part/parts he'd make them. Very young then but he'd take me to the mill and I'd sit there and watched 'Magic Hands.'

Thanks everyone--your quick and friendly replies just confirm why I've been frequenting this forum. Ard and Fred, I've also read your postings over on the Speypages forum and have learned a lot from those (also gotten quite a few chuckles as well!).

Fred, you're in Idaho I believe? I'd love to hear the story of how you almost ended up in the NWT.

Ard, oddly enough I've never fished in the Yukon though I do have friends in Whitehorse and we pass through there every year on our way to Haines. As a resident Alaskan have you ever fished in Haines? Some great coho fishing in the Chilkat and Chilkoot--some friends and I go every October just before the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. This will be my fifteenth year.

Believe it or not I don't have a lot of pics from my various fishing adventures as I don't have a camera and have never been much of picture guy--just no "visual sense", really. I do have a few pics I can dredge up and will try to post those sometime. The pic in my avatar (if I actually loaded it properly) is of me heading out one very chilly morning on the Chilkoot river.

Thanks again for the warm welcome, and I look forward to posting.

Scott

Hi Scott,

I think you'll understand this; I haven't been to Haines because there's way too much where I'm at. We do love to see new places and one day will get down Southeast. By the sounds of things you get around.

Ard
