The 2nd Fly Fishing Canada (FFC) Canadian Fly Fishing Championship and Conservation Symposium is being held October 17-20, 2004 at the beautiful Fairmont Kenauk resort at Montebello, Quebec.

Less than two hours from either Montréal or Ottawa, this is an exceptional fishing destination with pristine lakes and its own hatchery and fisheries biologist. Browns, brookies and rainbows live in 32 lakes in this 100 square mile private reserve with an extended trout season. Although this IS a competition, the emphasis will be on fishing, conservation and FUN.

Canadian anglers are being sought as both COMPETITORS and VOLUNTEERS for this event. You can enter as either an individual competitor or as part of a team. From the winners, the Canadian National Team will be chosen to compete at the 2005 World Fly Fishing Championship, to be held in Sweden. The fishing will be loch style (fishing downwind from a drifting boat) and follow the FIPS-Mouche regulations for international fly fishing competitions.

(and, yes, on-site volunteers will also get a chance to try their hand at fishing these lovely lakes!)
