About the Hook And Hackle Club
The Hook & Hackle Club is based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It was formed in 1954 and registered as a not-for-profit society in 1957.
The club is dedicated to the enjoyment of all aspects of fly fishing with special emphasis on fly tying. Club activities and meetings are designed to encourage people to share their knowledge, stories, and experiences with others. The club also encourages catch & release, good sport fishing ethics, stream etiquette, and the preservation of fisheries for future generations.
Members have access to one of the finest selections of books in Western Canada, as well as a number of good videos / DVD’s. These cover all aspects of flyfishing and fly tying.
A selection of apparel (hats, shirts, jackets, ect.) with the Club logo are sold through the club store.
Members are encouraged to donate flies to the “Fly Bank”. These flies are then donated to various fund raiser’s and organizations such as “Trout Unlimited”, “Casting for Life”…
Beginner classes are held during regular meetings and usually start in October. The instructor(s) will include some of the Club’s most proficient and experienced fly tiers.
Fly tying demonstrations for intermediate / advanced tiers are periodically organized covering a range of topics and techniques.
Various “How to…” topics are periodically planned throughout the year regarding fly tying and fly fishing.
The Club organizes up to 5 special fishing trips each year to various locations.
