Meeting are starting.

Did you notice the water get hard this last week?


Yeah, i know that’s a cruel question. Too soon for ice fishing, too expensive to go to Mexico (invite me if you’re going please), and almost too cold for fly fishing. Perfect time to start tying and telling “true” fishing stories!

The first and 3rd thursday of the month we will be meeting at the Ernie Radbourne Pavillion in Muskoseepi Park 7-8:30 pm. Thats this thursday, like TOMORROW Thursday. 

Let’s share some stories and go over what topics you’d like to have on the agenda for this year. i have a few things to discuss but we should hear what you want the club to do. If you are interested in doing a presentation at one of the meetings or writing up something for the website (www.pcflyfishers.org) \ facebook page (members only or the public one), or want to add something to the emails i send out let me know.
And as always drop on by Primetime Hunting and support a local business. They are a supporter of the club and are offering discounts with your current member card (ask instore for details).

Changes with Facebook

I’d like to thank everyone who was able to come out to the meeting last night. Several things were discussed and i’ll be sending out an email with more information this weekend. Immediately i felt it was important to let whomever were not able to make it know that the Peace Country Flyfishers Association Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/peacecountryflyfisher/) has been closed until we can clarify how it should be used as a public resource for the club and our members. These are the last items posted to the group during this review period.

The Peace Country Flyfishers Association has chosen to discontinue the use of this Facebook Group. Posting and comments have been disabled.

The Peace Country Flyfishers Association as a club will continue to be active in promoting the sport of fly fishing through regular meetings (returning in October 2019), fly tying and fly casting instruction, promoting good sportsmanship and environmental conservation, and promoting family friendly social outings.

We will continue to post Club information, events, and presentations on our website http://pcflyfishers.org. A closed Club Members only group has been created (Peace Country Flyfishers Members) where our members will be posting current events, outings and fishing information. You can contact myself or any club member for information on how to obtain a club membership and access this group. admin@pcflyfishers.org

We will update you as we make changes and appreciate your support.

This page was intended to be a public face of the Peace Country Flyfishers Association and it’s members. Very few members have actually been using this group and we feel that the level of topics and discussion does not agree with our values and mandate of promoting education, information and sports fishing practices.

Again to be clear, the club has not changed and we will continue with our summer events and regular meetings will restart as normal in October. All current club members are invited to join the new closed Facebook group (Peace Country Flyfishers Members) to share your photos and adventures with other club members and access more fly fishing related information and location fishing reports that will not be posted to the website or possibly the public facebook page (if it is decided to restart that group).

This is a time of some transitions regarding what we see as the public face of the club and we appreciate your patience and welcome your input.

The summer events listings are on the new page and our regular meeting season at Muskoseepi Park are completed until October.
