02.02.16 2016 February Fly Swap

 
There are still a few spaces left - first come first served!
12 fly tiers will be swapping their "go to trout flies" on size 10-16 hooks and will be expected to tie twelve of their favorite trout pattern. Flies will need to be completed prior to March 8, 2016 and delivered to Corey at Flies and Lies. On March 8 at Flies and Lies: each tier will receive twelve flies, one of every pattern produced by the other tiers. Send Corey an e-mail with the name of your fly pattern if you would like to participate.

08.30.15 Countdown to the Limey Golf Tournament - September 17, 2015

 
The Annual Nova Scotia Salmon Association "Limey" Golf Tournament, supports the Acid Rain Mitigation Project on West River, Sheet Harbour, NS.

This year our event will be held on September 17, 2015 with registration at 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM start time at the Sherwood Golf & Country Club. The event will feature a great 12-hole golf competition combined with fishing on the well-stocked trout ponds and shooting multiple targets and clays. There has never been a better chance to have an incredibly unique day with friends and support the association and its critical work in on this important project that raises important operational funding for the West River Project. Last year, we were able to raise over $25,000, and over $460,000 since we started 9 years ago. We hope that with your continued generosity, we can exceed that number this year. There will be prizes for all events, capped off with a great meal. And, don’t worry if you’re not a pro with a golf club, fly rod or shotgun – we’ll make sure you’re safe and having a great time.

For more information visit our Limey Golf Tournament page and contact Mike Bardsley, Tournament Chair at  902-221-1221 or mike.bardsley@revolve.ca
