Fly Fishing Courses Are Resuming!
With COVID 19 restrictions lifting, we will run one course on May 07, 2022 and a second course on May 8th. Because of the cancellation of the course over the last two years, we have a backlog. We have enough people registered to fill all 20 positions on each of the two May 2022 courses and a waiting list long enough to fill a third course. It is possible that we could run another course later in the summer or early fall, but that will be decided later.
We are in the process of sorting out who can attend the two May courses from the list of registered folks. Any position not spoken for will be offered to those on our waiting list and it is more than likely that all 40 positions for the two courses will be filled from those two lists. This should not prevent anyone interested in our Fly Fishing Course from registering. Registration does not require immediate payment, but it will put you in a good position for our next course. So, if you are interested in our Fly Fishing Course, register here.
You are also entitled to membership to the MFFA in the year that you take the course. Your membership entitles you to member benefits including discounts of 10% on fly fishing stuff from Fishing Hole.
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.
