Hey Bruce, welcome to the forum! What part of Canada are you in? I am pretty sure that you will soon discover that there are a multitude of species that can be attacked with a fly rod and that could also influence your decision on what outfit to get... also look into joining a local club, they can definitely help guide you in the right direction!

Enjoy,

Nick

You do have some great fishing, for many different species... Pike is a popular fish all round and would you would probably like an 8/9wt for them (and the large flies they like to chomp), you have some incredible trout waters in and around your province with some large fish that a 6-8wt could be preferred for them, so something in that range should cover a wide variety of species you can catch... also including walleye, goldeye/mooneye, and I am sure you can find carp nearby which are super addictive on a fly rod...

I am going to make it to your province at some point but as a newbie to Saskatchewan I still have much to explore... If I could have swung it, I would have gone with my club who are in MB this weekend hunting monster Bows and Browns... but all in good time...
