Stream Sense - an evening with Jim McLennan

Stream Sense - an evening with Jim McLennan 

2021 dates to come.

An intimate evening with Jim McLennan

Join Jim for an evening talking fly-fishing. 

 What is Stream Sense? It's a combination of actions, reactions and observations 

that will help you find and fool more fish. 

 It's knowing how to do things correctly, when to change what you

are doing, and how not to screw things up too badly.

A lot of these are "little things" that can make a big difference; things 

we don't think about or don't pay attention to enough. There will be some 

important topics we don't often get the chance to discuss on the river. This is an evening of questions, answers, and discussion about a myriad of fly-fishing topics, including fish behaviour, the importance of water temperature, when to change flies, how to approach water, common mistakes, 12 favourite flies, and whatever else comes up. Registrants can submit questions and topics prior to the evening. It will be a fun session that can improve your understanding of

what it means to fly fish. 

Jim will have a plan but hopes that attendees will help him deviate from it with their thoughts and questions. It's a great chance to pick his brain and gain some insight from his 50-plus years of waving a fly rod around in Alberta.
