Grande Prairie

Interesting.  Just received an email advising that the 2007 Canadian Fly Fishing Championships will be held in Grand Prairie, Alberta.

That’s a place in the middle of nowhere – hundreds of kilometres north west of Edmonton, Alberta.  But no rivers – instead, the competition will be completely lake/pond based.  I guess I’ll be spending lots of the summer months on lakes – something I have seldom fly fished in the past.

Grande Prairie is quite a bit north – the city is 55 degrees latitudinally, north of the equator.  Lots of daylight hours in the early summer.. wonder what it’s like in September, the tentative month for the competition.
