As with most fish, flyfishers can't live long out of water...so here's how to "stay wet" in Toronto between fishing seasons: meet with us at the Winter Hatches Flyfishing Club. Through the fall and winter, our club anglers gather to share tips, tactics, and talk about trips. We always welcome new people, whether you're an old pro or just a beginner. Come and see for yourself. Visitors are welcome.
Winter Hatches is a club for people who enjoy fly fishing. Our aims are to:
·promote the sport; ·learn from well-known fly fishing masters; ·exchange ideas on issues related to fly fishing; ·attract people to the sport, particularly young people; ·share our fly fishing experiences and skills with each other; and ·enjoy fly fishing while being mindful of our fragile environment and its fisheries' resources.
Presentations Each season, Winter Hatches offers an exciting series of talks and slide presentations on topics ranging from exotic locations to great fishing spots right here at home.
Fly Tying Classes We offer a course for intermediate tyers. Some of Toronto's best flytyers willingly share their tips and approaches.
Fly Tying Symposium Every year, Winter Hatches organizes a one-day Symposium dedicated to fly tying. It's the only event of its kind in Ontario and it attracts fly tyers from all over the province... and points beyond.
Conservation The Club supports the environmental conservation work of organizations dedicated to protecting, maintaining or restoring cold water fisheries in Southern Ontario. Club members are encouraged to volunteer on conservation projects. From the money it raises through membership fees and special events, Winter Hatches gives financial assistance to selected conservation groups and activities.
Club Outings Each year we host club outings to local fishing areas.
