Jim and Lynda began fly fishing together in the 1970s. Married since 1977,
they have operated McLennan Fly Fishing full time since 2004, and in
that time have taught thousands of people the fine art of fly fishing.
Jim was one of the first fly-fishing guides on Alberta’s Bow River, and is a
well-known outdoor writer and speaker. He is the author of five books on
fly fishing. He is contributing editor for Fly Fisherman and Fly Fusion magazines.
2022 brings his new book Trout Tracks.
Jim is also co-host, along with Derek Bird, of Fly Fusion Television,
a series broadcast on the World Fishing Network.
Lynda was a founding director of Casting For Life, a fly-fishing
retreat for breast cancer survivors, and has been teaching fly fishing
in various formats since the 1980s.
She is a skilled photographer whose work appears in magazines,
books, and on numerous websites.
She has been a photographer for Highfield Stock Farm since 2012.
Lynda is now spending time with her pens and pencils. Illustrations
compliment Jim's writing throughout his new book Trout Tracks.
In 2006 the McLennans were invited to represent Alberta’s fly-fishing community
at the Smithsonian’s Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C.
This website is also the information centre for two other Jim and Lynda McLennan passions/businesses - music and art/photography.
