Coal In Alberta

Most of you who receive our newsletters are aware of the possibility of increased open-pit coal mining in Alberta and are fully aware of the dire consequences this would have on the foothills and mountains of western Alberta, including its trout streams. This is the biggest threat to this area that we have encountered in our 50-plus-year love affair with the wild country and its trout streams.


Here are four things we're asking you to do:

1.Educate yourself about the issue.

Visit for information, updates and suggested ways to take action

2.Complete the Alberta government's coal policy survey here:

3.  Watch this video, put together by our good friends at Fish Tales Fly Shop:

4.Make the situation known to your friends, especially those outside the fly-fishing community. Many people are unaware or unconcerned about this, and we need to make them aware.

5. Take action.
