Bow River Shakedown
In this episode of Wild On The Fly, travelling angler Leanne Ross visits Calgary’s Bow River in Alberta, Canada in search of her very first Brown Trout. Leanne may have travelled the world chasing all manner of exotic species, but she cannot call herself a true fly fisher until she catches a staple browny. North Bow Lodge on the bow river may be the perfect place. Essentially an artificial river created and regulated by the Calgary industrial complex, the Bow has surprisingly excellent water quality and aquatic life. By drifting boats and casting dry flies tight to the bank, Leanne not only achieves her goal, but smashes it with some huge specimens.
