Greetings Fellow Fly Fishers
Spring is quickly approaching and I wanted to provide an M&Y Fly Shop update on several fronts:
Because of the success of last year’s show, this year Michael & Young Fly Shop is hosting a 2012 viewing of this awesome flyfishing movie collection. Mark it in your calendars!!! Saturday May 19 – 4:00pm at the Clove Cinema in Cloverdale BC. Doors open at 3:30 and the theater will have the concession open during the show. If you would like to see a trailer please visit and, if you would like to follow the tour on facebook please visit www.facebook.com/IF4TOUR. Tickets are $15.00 each and are available at either of our locations or can be mailed to you upon your request.
There will be an earlier show (not hosted by us ) in Vancouver at VanCity Theater (same as last year) on Saturday March 24th at 7:00pm. Tickets for this show are also available through us at M&Y and are selling fast!
Calendar of Free Demonstrations

Upcoming Courses and Seminars
Dates have been set for all of our 2012 workshops – just go to our website at www.myflyshop.com to view these dates. Courses available for 2012 include Fundamental Fly Tying, Intruder Fly Tying, Tube Flies for Steelhead, Chironomid Fly Tying, One Day and Three Day Fly Casting, Spey Casting, Skagit Casting, Fly Fishing and Entomology and our ever popular On-The-Water Classes for Cutthroat and Steelhead. Our annual Stillwater Fly Fishing Weekend to be hosted by Ryan will be conducted at Roche Lake on the weekend of June 22-24 hopefully the lake continues to treat us as well as last year with big fish for everyone!! We have two chalets booked for 8 anglers.
Most all of these classes are relatively inexpensive and it’s a great way to brush up your skills or learn more about this fascinating sport. As the old adage goes – the more you learn the more there is to learn, and that is certainly true with the sport of fly fishing. We have not yet scheduled our On-The-Water Salmon courses for the summer and fall of 2012 but will send an e-mail in the summer with updates.
Classes in March that still have room: Skagit Casting Boot Camp on Saturday March 10; Tube Flies for Steelhead on Thursdays (3) starting March 15; On The Water Cutthroat on either Saturday March 17 or Sunday March 18; On the Water Steelhead on Saturday Mar 31.
M&Y 7th Annual Spey Day – Saturday April 14th
Again, if you are not aware, this years keynote guest and demonstrator will be Travis Johnson of the Carron Casting Team and The Fly Fishing Shop in Welches, Oregon. Travis is a decorated spey casting competitor and is a member of one of the top ranked casting teams in the world. We are just tweaking details of the other demos that will be conducted and a follow up email will be sent once the agenda is finalized. This is a free event, we will be feeding everyone complimentary lunch and there will be some great raffle prizes as well. So far we have received reels from Abel, Islander, and Saracione, a rod from C.F. Burkheimer. Besides these awesome prizes there will be lines, T-shirts, hats and other goodies. Once again all proceeds will be donated to the Steelhead Society of BC. Make sure to bring a stack of cash as tickets will cost $5.00 each. Don’t miss this event, mark it on your calendar!
