Your Fly Fishing Guide & Instructor

Ontario on the Fly is a premium and personal fly-fishing and education service for fly fishing in Ontario run by myself, Douglas Moen. I bought my first fly-fishing rod in 1961 and have been fishing most of my adult life. Fishing, and now fly-fishing, has been such a part of my life that I cannot ever remember it not being there. I have either fished with or have been taught by some of the great masters of our sport: Joan and Lee Wulff, Lefty Kreh and west coast legend Jim Greene, as well as many others. I have caught enough fish in my life that my biggest thrill now is watching someone I am guiding, or have just taught, catch a good fish.

"I have been fishing all over the world and have sometimes suffered poor guiding from people with little knowledge or skill. It was refreshing to meet an experienced and knowledgeable guide who was both keen and enthusiastic as well as generous with his tips and techniques "

Fly Fishing in Ontario.

One of the world's great fly fishing destinations.

 

There are few single destinations that offer the diversity and quality of fly-fishing that we have here in Southern Ontario.  Here, at certain times of the year, you can spend an entire week and target a different species each day. Browns, Rainbows,, Bass, Muskies, Pike, Steelhead and Salmon.. And Fergus, the unofficial fly-fishing capital of Southern Ontario and just an hour’s drive from Toronto, is right in the heart of it all. Its worldwide reputation has brought me wonderful clients from Japan, Korea, Dubai, Austria, Australia, England, Scotland, Florida, Texas, Missouri and across Canada.

"Doug introduced me to fishing in Canada, with a great deal of patience and wit. He is able to see where you’re going wrong with casting, or presentation, and with a couple of helpful hints correct the errors making the day remarkably satisfying  A great teacher and very enjoyable company on the river”

Teaching fly-fishing  is

a passion of mine.

It is a privilege to be able to share the knowledge and joy for the sport that I have gained in my lifetime. I love to take the mystery out of fly fishing and have my students understand how simple basic fly fishing and casting can be.  My goal is not to just show students how I do it, but to have them understand how they can do it. I believe that good teaching goes beyond text-book theory and into the realm of individual and personal possibilities.

"Your passion for fly fishing is infectious!"  H. Woolvett
