Welcome to the MFFA's website. Come check out who we are, and what we are about. Any questions, feel free to reach out to us on our Contact Us page, and we will strive to respond as quickly as possible.
Make sure to check out our events calendar for meeting information, outings, and other activities. You can now join the MFFA or renew your membership on line! Just click here. Our Deadline for renewals is Jan 24, 2023. Anyone renewing prior to that will be eligible for the draw for a Cabelas Synch 8 wt Fly Outfit.
Be sure to join us on Sunday, December 11 for our last session of Bugs and Beer at the Trans Canada Brewery from 2-5. This is an unstructured fly tying session so please bring your own gear and tie, or just have a beer and socialize. Beginners, feel free to sit with an experienced tier and learn a new pattern or technique. For any new members this is a chance to socialize and learn from the more seasoned members. We will not have the Club equipment available. Feel free to bring your own tying gear and enjoy a cool one or something to eat (beer & food is not supplied by the MFFA).
If you are planning on attending email Mike Corrigan so we can book enough space. Consider visiting the Club’s Facebook page and posting a picture of what you are planning on tying.
Our next course will be run on Saturday May 6 2023. If the demand exceeds the course capacity a second course will be run on Sunday May 7 2023. Information emails detailing course administration will go out to all registered individuals in the spring of 2023.
MFFA Conservation Objective: To encourage and support all persons and agencies dedicated to the preservation of clean water and good fishing, and to actively promote sound conservation practices and resource management in Manitoba.
Catch and Release
We support safe fish handling techniques when practicing catch and release angling. Further information can be found here (provided by the Swan Valley Sports Fishing Enhancement group.)
The MFFA received a $9000 grant to develop place educational signage promoting safe fish handling techniques. More information will be coming soon but an excellent resource can be found at KeepFishWet.org.

Everyone can check out pictures of the Whiteshell River Enhancement Project provided by Bruce Cameron here. And while Covid restrictions certainly limited the MFFAʼs activities, we were still able to participate in a Whiteshell River Conservation outing in Spring 2020. Check out some great shots and information here.
