Hey Fly Fish Calgary,

2. Virtual Whisky/Wine Tasting Event (Friday, March 19th 7-9pm, $75)


  • Curated selection of 4 – 1.5oz of high end Whisky samples.
  • Scotch, Irish, Rye, Bourbon: Explore the different styles in the Whisky family
  • Option to substitute a bottle of wine for the non Whisky drinkers. (Will be of equal value to Whisky) Red or White
  • Tasting notes provided by Elliot Hunter
  • Charcuterie box by Great Events Catering
  • Special guest speakers and presentations throughout the evening.

A little about what we have done for the Bow River: all funds we raise go right back into the Bow River. We aim to have as little overhead as possible so it all goes into helping.

- Improvements and Maintenance of Policeman's Flats
- Whirling Disease research in traditional Rainbow Trout spawning areas (working with U of A, hoping for Summer 2021 start)
- Engagement on Bow River Flows with TransAlta
- Engagement with AEP on Bow River Fish Population Studies
- Maintaining relationships with all stakeholders responsible for or with Bow River management and conservation.
- Fishing line recycling bins at Strategic locations
- Collaborating with City of Calgary to complete in stream and riparian monitoring on Bow with in Calgary.
