Second Annual Grand River Trip

June 3-4, 2014

Back by popular demand, we are again organizing an overnight fishing trip to the upper Grand River. Last year’s trip to the Fergus/Elora area was so successful that attendees suggested it become an annual event. It is a great opportunity for members to enjoy a few days of fishing and camaraderie while sharing their skills and experience.

Again this year, we have chosen a Tuesday/Wednesday in early June to beat weekend crowds and hopefully experience a Henderickson hatch. Our two days on the Grand will begin at Wilson’s Fly Shop on Tuesday morning for a meet and greet. Our host, Rob Heal, will provide a river update and answer your questions.

 At the Drew House, innkeepers Roger and Kathleen are holding a block of rooms. Everyone must arrange their own accommodations (contact information is provided below). Please book early to avoid disappointment.

 Here are some of the arrangements so far…
