Thursday March 12th - Grand River Outfitting and Fly Shop - 6 - 9 pm.

It was 20 years ago that Don helped put the Grand River tailwater on the
map with his article in Fly Fisherman Magazine, September of 1995,
"Ontario's Grand River" and we thought what better way to celebrate than
to have him demonstrate some of his tried and true caddis patterns that
have performed for him over the years.
Bring your vise and tie along with Don or just sit back and take notes as
this is guaranteed to be an informative tutorial that will greatly improve
your success on the Grand River.

This event is limited to 10 students and is available at a rate of $70.00
/ person + Hst.

The class will feature all of Don's original caddis patterns: The Hatching
Caddis Adult, Hatching Caddis Pupa, Floating Caddis / Mayfly Emerger,
Floating Caddis Pupa, plus two more proven and deadly caddis larva
patterns. These flies, if you have them in your box, will certify your
readiness for most any caddis hatch / situation you encounter. Just have a
range of sizes and colors.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
