Ian’s interest in aquatic environments led Ian to complete a Ph.D. in stream insect ecology, and gave him the background to write the Canadian non-fiction best selling book “Fly Fishing the Grand River” with Jane Rutherford — his wife,

Ian will bring along some preserved samples for viewing and answer your questions and tie some imitations of a few insects/stages. 

We will have fly tying materials for the patterns and a few spare vices and tools.

Membership dues have not changed and are now payable. $30 for single and $45 for families. As usual we will still charge $3 at the door and $2 towards fly tying materials on tying nights, where we supply materials.

Meetings are held upstairs at the Police Association at 555 Upper Wellington Street, Hamilton, Ontario. Doors open at 7 and meetings begin at 7:30

Guests and non-members welcome
