Learn to Fly Fish

Ontario’s best choice for fly fishing education just a short drive from Toronto.

“Without the right approach, learning to Fly Fish can be frustrating at best.”

When you take a course from Calmwaters our philosophy is simple:
“Anyone can learn. Everyone will learn.”

Learn to Fly Fish from the very best guides in Southern Ontario! With Calmwaters experienced guides, you will learn how to cast, mend, tie knots, when to use different flies and more. But there are the subtle changes and movements above & within the river that should not be ignored.


Drift days

“If you’ve ever asked a guide what his favourite trip would be, it would most likely be a Drift Boat excursion.”

A float trip is by far the best way to enjoy fishing while seeing remote stretches of Ontario’s rivers that are not accessible by foot. Our Clackacraft boats are the best in the business providing the ultimate in comfort, safety and fishing convenience.


We would love to guide you on one of Ontario’s pristine rivers.
