Welcome to The First Cast Fly Fishing Shop, Ontario’s favourite Fly Fishing outfitter, guide service and lesson / instruction provider.
A small(ish) business with a BIG presence!
We are located in Guelph, Ontario, Canada – Only one hour from either London, Toronto, or Niagara Falls, Ontario and only 20 minutes from the Grand River, Credit River and Conestogo River.
We have the LARGEST and BEST local selection of fishing related equipment for all target fish species when it comes to BOTH Fly Fishing and Traditional Gear.
We are the leader in Fly Fishing instruction / lessons and guiding in the immediate and surrounding area.
Our Guiding Service targets Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Brook Trout, Musky and Smallmouth Bass and we concentrate our Fly Fishing Education on the Grand River, the Credit River, and the Conestogo River.
Although our Fly Fishing shop is located just minutes from the world famous Tailwater Fly Fishing Fishery – The Grand River, being centrally located between Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, Georgian Bay and Lake Huron, we also guide for Steelhead and migratory Chinook and Coho Salmon on the tributaries of these Great Lakes.
Aside from the Upper Grand and Credit Rivers, the other Ontario Rivers that we guide include: the Lower Grand River, the Bighead River, the Saugeen River, the Nottawasaga River, the Maitland River, the Lower Credit River, the Niagara River and a few other lesser known lakes and streams.
