  1. I WANT TO INVITE YOU TO MEET THE LIMAY RIVER IN FORTIN NOGUEYRA’S RANCH IN PATAGONIA; IT IS A PRIVATE SETTING WHERE FLY FISHING ACTIVITIES ARE CARRIED OUT. IT IS A GREAT RIVER IN SIZE AND IN FISHING QUALITY. THE STREAM IS 35 KILOMETRES LONG ; THE IDEA OF THIS PROJECT IS TO INVITE FOREIGN FISHERS TO COME TO THIS AWESOME RIVER TO ENJOY HAVING A GOOD TIME. OUR GUIDES WILL TAKE THEM TO EXCLUSIVE PLACES WHERE THEY WILL BE ABLE TO FISH THE BIGGEST AND WILDEST TROUTS IN THE RIVER. THANK YOU; JOSE LUIS DEHAIS. MAIL ADDRESS: fnogueyra@yahoo.com.ar

  2. Hello, My name is Dick Dousett I am the son of Bill Dousett who in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s used to give a bilingual workshop at the Isaak Walton convention in Toronto with Jacques Juneau. I think it was called “Others are fun too” It encourage fly fishing for species other than Trout and Salmon, which at the time was revolutionary. My father was awarded the Paul Plante award this novenber for his contribution to the fly fishing community in the province of Quebec. I was asked to write up an English Article for a French reporter, would you have any archival material that I could use.

  3. I am so thrilled to find the Izaak Walton Club is still going and strong. I am the wife of Peter Hurst and when our son was born, Peter did a backward summer sault from the neighbours elevated patio causing back injury and that is how he met Dr. Donald Moore, Chiropractor. Then I went to work for Dr. Moore in the evenings and we became friends with Dr. Moore and his wife Marvene. Peter and Don loved fishing so it wasn’t long before they decided to start a club and placed an advertisement in the Oakville Journal, now defunct. Phil Kettle was the first to contact Don and Peter and from there the name of the club was chosen as Peter is English Izaak Walton being famous for fly fishing lore was the obvious choice. Congratulations to everyone in the Club.

    • Patricia, Thanks for this; Peter should feel very proud of his founding efforts. I know that he has been in frail health.
      We are very cognisant of the proud history of the club, and we endeavour to recognise this at all times. Our club is built on camaraderie and sharing positive attitudes; these are the rewards we enjoy from Peter’s foresight and expediency. Warmest Regards from us all. Please feel free to visit us on any club evening; alternatively, if you can make it to our annual barbecue on the 11th May, I will make sure you get a hotdog or hamburger with all the “fixins” at my expense.

      • Further to my previous communication Peter has dementia and is in a seniors home in Nova Scotia near his daughter, Stephanie. I now understand that he has renal failure and we have been warned he may only a few weeks left. Because of the current situation, his family are not permitted to visit. I will let you know immediately I hear anything further.

    • Hi Doug,
      Pretty simple really.
      The letters are not an abbreviation.
      This is how a youngster might spell nymph?
      (As you already know, the nymph is an immature mayfly).
      Thanks for asking; you are not the first.

  4. What the membership provides to its members? Is it annual or one time off?
    I would love to go back to fishing as I used to do when I was younger.
    I was an angler in the Mediterranean.
    Do you organize trips outside the city, or is it local?
    I live in Scarborough.
    Thanks

    • Thanks for this request for info.
      Basically, with the ANNUAL membership fee you are invited along to our twice monthly meetings in Mississauga during the off season (Sept through April). You will be enlightened and welcomed by the other members who will willingly share their accumulated wisdoms.
      The meetings alternate between fly tying sessions in which a guest fly tyer explains the special techniques and preferences for the flies he demonstrates.
      The other meeting of the month is a guest speaker event in which topics of special interest to fly fishers are discussed. If you look at our home page you will get a flavor of those guest speakers.

      We have two well established outings annually to the Grand river for browns and later in the season bass. Club members are encouraged to share their own outings privately as well; and this occurs depending upon geography and availability of dates.

      Presently, as you might understand we are somewhat constrained in our activities.

      We were in the process of starting a new venture “A Bass and Jazz” day in Acton, with fly casting tuition and fly tying during the day and some outdoor Jazz in the evening after a chilli supper. That has been cancelled unfortunately.

      Presently, we are unable to proceed with setting up our off season schedule as there is so much uncertainty; however we are able to get out fishing with suitable social distancing precautions.

      Our membership has a wide distribution geographically. I live in Stratford. Some members live further north than Toronto, but the majority of members live locally. We fish the Credit, Grand, Maitland, Nottawasaga and rivers in the collingwood area as well

      If you need any more info, or have some more questions we will be happy to assist.

      Stay safe and may your waders be wet outside and comfy warm on the inside!

      Cheers

      David
