The Faculty of Fishing
My home town of Kenora, nestled up here in Northwestern Ontario, along the shore of Lake of the Woods, is famous for many things. For starters, it's the smallest city ever to win hockey's prestigious Stanley Cup. Granted it was over 100 years ago, but who is counting?
Another feather in our cap is home town boy, Mike Richards, the current captain of the Philadelphia Flyers who is tearing up the NHL.
And though we're only 25,000 or so hardy souls, we even have our own Fishing University.
It is called the Faculty of Fishing and it is the brilliant brain child of good friend, Terry McClymont.
Terry's a passionate tournament angler who, when he isn't fishing is a full time pilot with Air Canada, flying jumbo jets all over the world.

The reason I mention all this is because Terry is equipped, from a training perspective, unlike any other "fishing educator" in the world today.
Which makes his Faculty of Fishing such a unique online resource. It provides comprehensive and structured programs to help anglers gain the knowledge that will help them catch more fish in ways they've never before attempted.
In setting up the mammoth program, McClymont consulted with some of the best anglers in the sport today, as well as expert biologists and meteorologists, and leading fishing tackle manufacturers.
