"Last Cast" Italian Pilsner
The Latest Collaboration between the TRAA & London Brewing Co-op!

Last Cast Beer

Due to popular demand, the TRAA and the London Brewing Co-op have again teamed up to bring you another limited-edition beer... just in time for summer!

It's London Brewing Co-op's Italian Pilsner, but with hops grown locally just outside of Parkhill to create a unique brew just for the TRAA edition of "Last Cast"!

We'll be launching the beer on Saturday June 18th (in time for Father's Day, oh ya) but you can place your order NOW by clicking here!

 

Note that this is a limited run so once it's gone, you'll have to try to bum a can off a fellow TRAA member... good luck with that!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TRAA Annual Paddle and Fish - Saturday, August 20, 2022

Dave and Pud

 

Our Annual Paddle & Fish was interrupted for a couple of years but we're back and ready to hit the river again!

 

It's a fairly straight-forward event. You get in your watercraft, paddle downstream and pause every now and then to cast a line. If it sounds like a good time, we hope to see you out there!

 

Sunscreen is highly recommended. You should also consider suitable clothing, water and snacks - we'll leave all of that up to your own good judgement.

 

Each participant must have a properly fitted and approved Personal Flotation Device (PFD).

We'll be putting in at the Komoka Bridge to float and cast our way to Tiffany Park in Delaware. Our tired and hungry crew will then be treated to a simple BBQ lunch at the Take Out point around noon.

 

Offloading your watercraft and gear needs to be swift and efficient as parking at the Put In is limited. Once you've done so, drive your vehicle to Tiffany Park and wait for the shuttle vehicle. This process will begin at 6:30AM, which should allow a large portion of the route to be undertaken before the heat of the day.

 

Remember to bring along lawn chairs for the BBQ portion of the event.

 

Please note that this event is for TRAA members only. Those who are not TRAA members are welcome to bring along $25 to join the TRAA, right on the spot!

 

We cannot control Mother Nature so if conditions are deemed to be unsafe, the event will be cancelled.

 

 

 

 

 

TRAA Fishing Evenings - July & August 2022

There are no TRAA General Meetings during the months of July and August so we like to go fishing instead!
A new fishing spot on the Thames River watershed in the London, Ontario area will be featured every Thursday of July and August. We meet around 5:30pm and fish until, umm, we stop!

While this is an activity for TRAA members, there is nothing stopping non-members from coming out, meeting us, and perhaps bringing along $25 to become a member!
