Fly Casting Workshop with a Master Caster!

We are excited to be partnering with Master Fly Casting Instructor Lewis Hinks to offer introductory fly casting workshops in Cheticamp! These workshops will provide an introduction to the exciting world of sport fishing. Participants will learn the basics of fly fishing, with instruction and hands-on learning experiences with tying fishing knots, techniques for casting, and opportunities to practice hooking and releasing live fish. No prior experience is required in order to participate in the workshops. All that is needed is comfortable clothing, sunglasses or safety glasses (to provide protection for participants' eyes), and an interest in having a unique and exciting experience.

Lewis Hinks has over 40 years of fly fishing experience, and has been teaching fly casting for the last five years. While Lewis enjoys introducing beginners to the sport, he also looks forward to opportunities to provide feedback and coaching to experienced anglers. Participants can sign up for a morning (9-12pm) or afternoon (1-4pm) workshop. Workshops will take place on July 31 (rain date of Aug. 1) in Cheticamp. For more information on this event, contact the Cheticamp River Salmon Association at or phone CRSA President Rene Aucoin at 902-224-5854. 

Come experience fly fishing in Cape Breton and get hooked with us!
