Waterton Couples Fly-Fishing Retreat & Instruction

Sept. 6,7,8, 2019

Join Jim and Lynda for a weekend at beautiful Waterton River Suites for a time to immerse yourselves in the beautiful world of fly-fishing. This weekend is for beginners to advanced fly fishers.

Wateron River Suites is south of Pincher Creek Alberta ( and is a perfect spot for solitude, serenity and beauty. It overlooks the Waterton River, with the dramatic Rock Mountains of Waterton National Park as a backdrop.

We'll arrive Friday late afternoon, have a light dinner and spend Saturday and Sunday thinking, talking, and doing fly fishing. It's a perfect chance for couples to explore this together. It's common for one partner to be an experienced fly fisher and the other to be interested in taking it up. If this sounds like you, this weekend is what you need. 

Jim and Lynda will both be there, and this low student-to-teacher ratio means we'll be ready to introduce new-comers to fly fishing and help polish the technique of experienced fly fishers at the same time.

Topics covered will be determined in consultation with attendees, but will include:


     trout food

     knots and setting up your leader for various fishing techniques


     reading water

     dry-fly, streamer and nymph-fishing techniques.
