December 28, 2017

Fly Fishing Canada is pleased to announce that the 16th Annual National Championship will be based in Centre Wellington (Fergus-Elora), Ontario from June 6-8, 2018.  Venues will include the Grand River, Conestoga River, and the Upper Credit Trout Club. There will be four river sessions and one pond bank-fishing session.  The Grand and Conestoga rivers are tailwater fisheries, stocked annually each Spring with up to 40,000 Brown Trout, many of which hold over from year to year, producing some of North America’s best trophy brown trout approaching the 30-inch size (76cm). The Upper Credit Trout Club has operated as a private members’ club for over 40 years. It features a pond large enough to provide beats for rotational bank-fishing, and is stocked with trophy Rainbow Trout and Brook Trout. This promises to be an exciting event, bringing together competitive anglers and spectators from across Canada to share in and experience the fine waters of the area.

For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

Thanks to Fly Fishing Canada for getting this together. 

I want to enter this competition so if there are any "teams' out there that would be looking for a fisher to fill out one of their 5 positions please let me know.  I live in London Ontario and have fished both rivers many times.  I am the president of the Forest City Fly Fishing club in London and have been doing quite a bit of Euro-style nymphing the past few years.  I have studied the techniques and I have purposely invited competitive anglers to do presentations at our club.  So while I have not competed in a comp as yet I feel like I can contribute to a team and will certainly listen and learn to teammates to make the most of the opportunity. 

I am also heading back down to Western North Carolina in March to fish some of the trout waters that the U.S. had it's National championship in 2011.  I am organizing a trip for some of our club members and a few others that might want to hone their skills in March on some amazing rivers.  So Iam very serious about becoming a better fly fisherman all the time.

Please let me know if you are looking for someone to join your team and we can talk some more about this.  Also if anyone is interested in N.C. fishing let me know and I can share some info from my trip there last February or our one this March.

Thanks
Scott Voisin
