Ontario Fly Fishing Outfitter
Grindstone Angling, established in 1993 and described by many as a western style fly shop in the heart of south central Ontario, is a Full Time Professional Fly Fishing outfitter and centre.
Ontario Fishing Guide Service
Grindstone Outfitters has been a full time Ontario guiding operation since 1993. The experience of our guides is second to none on south central Ontario's wilderness waterways. In 1995, Grindstone introduced the McKenzie style driftboat to the province and pioneered guide service on many of the larger cold water rivers of southern Ontario, including the Saugeen and Grand rivers.
Driftboat and walk and wade trips are available for trout, bass, steelhead, salmon and muskie. Our season begins in late March and progresses through the year until the rivers begin to ice over in late December. See why our Ontario Fishing Guides should be your first choice.
Fly Fishing Travel
Our Fly Fishing Travel Service hosts group trips to various destinations throughout Canada. Over the last 20 years, we have traveled extensively and visited many of the great rivers available to Canadian anglers.
If none of our hosted trips suits your schedule, we'll arrange an adventure for you with one of our partners. We will find a suitable outfitter and location that we have personally experienced, and eliminate all the guesswork. Fly Fishing Travel
