Ontario's Fly-fishing Education Centre

Our most popular program is "Hands on Fly-fishing", BUT now we offer this same successful program on more rivers than just the famous Grand River Tailwater here in Fergus/Elora area. We now have Satellite Troutfitter Education Depots on the lower Grand River in Paris/Brantford, in the London Area on Thames River and Saugeen River in the Walkerton and Durham area.

Troutfitters has long ago discovered how great it is to design and tie your own feather and fur creation that tricks a fish to strike. So teaching people to tie flies properly is monumentally important to us. Email us your fly tying desires to improve or just learn and we will customize your lesson. We have numerous fly tying professionals located in Fergus, Elora, Guelph, Kitchener, Brantford and Owen Sound.

Improve your casting skills

Fly casting has been made out to be one of the harder things to learn in most fly fishing school programs. We don’t agree – it is the easiest part of our day in any of our programs. To get the basics is simple and quick – we focus on doing exactly that in our learn to fly fish lessons. The rest of time is spent teaching you to be a self sufficient fly fisher.

Of course there are advanced casting techniques and this we like to keep separate from our normal program. So you want more accuracy, greater casting distance, abilities to cast in the wind or even learn to spey cast our casting lessons by the hour are the recipe for success. Let us prove to you how effective this focus can be. Book your hour lesson with us soon.
