String Theory Angling is officially one year old today! This blog may have been online for a year but it was an idea I’d been thinking about for a long time. Blogging isn’t something that came naturally to me, it took me almost six months to figure out what to even call the blog. But, after a year of practice, I am confident in saying that the blog is getting better. Even though there has been some changes to the layout and features, my motivation for starting String Theory remains the same. My motivation was twofold, I wanted to become a better angler and I wanted to get involved in the angling community. There was no better way for me to do both of those things than through this website.
I’ve not only had a great blogging year but also a great angling year. I managed to beat not one, but two personal bests: a 35” Northern Pike and a 21.5” Tiger Trout. I also went on my first of what I’m sure will be many guided trips. Jet boating up the North Saskatchewan River and chasing fish with a fly rod was a really great experience I hope to do again next year.
Looking towards the future I am excited to keep the site growing. I focus a lot on Alberta and what’s around Edmonton but I hope this year I can branch out and cover more of the Western Provinces. A lot of other websites and videos cover the best parts of Eastern Canada but it was always my intent to cover the best of Western Canada. My biggest focus for String Theory is getting the best value for your dollar and your time on the water. I also cover my favorite fishing topics such as ice fishing, kayak fishing, conservation, the Western Canada Kayak Fishing Trail and developing more tips and tactics for our local waters.
Most importantly, I want to give a big thank you to everyone that has commented and given feedback on the site. You have all been nothing but positive and encouraging and that really motivates me to keep cranking out content for everyone! So what types of content do you want to see more of?
