Stay a While!
Conditions on the Grand River this summer are the best we have seen in years and the fly fishing for trophy Fergus Browns in the tailwater and bass in the lower river has been great. There are a number of B&Bs in the area and lots of things to do so bring your family, book a room through the Fergus Elora B&B Association and call WILSONS to book your guide!
Fly Fishing + Golf
If your company is looking for a unique way to entertain clients in the GTA or KW area book a day of Fins & Skins! Spend your morning learning how to fly fish on the Grand River and your afternoon golfing at Wildwinds Golf Links just 12 minutes south of our Fergus store. All fly fishing gear is provided (except fishing licenses) as is lunch and golf carts at the course. For more details please call 519-787-3474
Send us your fly fishing pictures each month for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate that you can spend in one of our stores or in our online store. You can enter as often as you like and the pictures only have to be fly fishing-related.
Bass On the Fly
There are few thrills in fresh water fly fishing as fun as catching bass on the fly and the 2014 season is upon us! The Grand River and Saugeen River are two of the best places to target in southern Ontario so call our Fergus store at 519-787-3474 to book your trip today!
Every year we organize a series of very reasonably priced hosted fly fishing weekends to provide anglers an opportunity to visit new places in Ontario, fish new water and make new friends. Watch for details in the coming weeks.
