Ontario Trout Opener 2014

Headed out with the usual crew of cabin fevered pals for the weekend. Had one new fella out with us this year. He survived. We headed to our trout camp on Friday afternoon to get camp set up and do some scouting. Checked out a few streams and had a hard time deciding where to put our focus for the weekend. In the end, we just split up and fished all of them! Friday afternoon was a bit chilly. We had some snow mixed with rain for a couple of hours. Nothing a wee bit of maple syrup whisky won’t take care of though. I made a half dozen litres of maple syrup this year, and turned half of it

Stolen Driftboat Net

008-finished

This from Bruce Farrell of Grey Bruce Outdoors: One of the very first Custom Nets I made for a GBO Member has been stolen. Thursday evening (March 20/2014), in Sauble, at a store, right out of a drift boat. The net taken is Number 008. It is a one of a kind, the person who stole it has no idea that this net is extremely identify-able and unique, they do not have a hope in hell of saying they bought it somewhere!! Unless they bought it from the thief. To the thief, give it back, now! If you don’t there will be about 5 thousand anglers looking for it and I am not saying you will be dealt any sympathy

December FFO News and Updates

It must be the same anticipation with which we wait for spring that we wait for chilling nights that freeze the ground beneath us. Typically this drives all but the most menacing of fly fishers in beside a warm fire to sip whiskey laden ice cubes, or apple cider drenched in rum. For those who choose frigid, windy and wet mornings to rise before the sun…The opportunities are endless.

Bronte Creek Salmon Poaching

Dead salmon bronte creek

Province Launching Investigation Into Ontario’s Bronte Creek Salmon Poaching The most sickening thing about this passion we all have, fishing, is the people who go about it in the most unethical, and illegal ways they can.  Its fall in Ontario again, and our rivers look like it… Finally the Ministry of Natural Resources is stepping up, follow this link to read the story on the Inside Halton website:   Bronte Creek Salmon Investigation This is the time of year that some of the worst anglers come out to play.

Ontario Ice Fishing Website Launched

A New Ontario Fishing Community Winter is here. It took a little while to start seeing those cold artic temperatures, but alas they came and most of our rivers are either closed for the season until trout opener in April, or they are frozen over. Either way, we have a long cold winter ahead of us. Good news though, for those who enjoy a little hard water ice fishing action in the winter. Ice Fish Ontario is the newest member of Ontario Fishing Adventures. We’re pleased to finally roll out exactly what Ontario has been waiting for. Similar to Fly Fish Ontario, Ice Fish Ontario brings us a community for the Ice Fishing Enthusiast. As the site grows, we expect
