Intro to Fly Fishing in Manitoba

Kelsey Bell
Sunday - 3pm

Join Kelsey for a brief introduction on fly fishing in the province of Manitoba. She'll share some stories from her experiences and give you some tips to get you started. She'll also share about some of the different fly fishing opportunities Manitoba has to offer and some great Manitoba based resources to help you on your own journey.


Kelsey is a Manitoba-born outdoorswoman with a passion for all types of fishing. Throughout the year, you can find her on the water (or ice) during every season, but her favourite times are when she can fly fish. Kelsey took up fly fishing in 2016 and it quickly became her favorite style because of the challenge, the tranquility, and the intentionality of the sport.

Kelsey has served as an executive committee member for the Manitoba Fly Fisher's Association since 2021. Through this position, she has had the privilege of leading and assisting with numerous fly fishing courses throughout Southern Manitoba. Kelsey loves to meet and help new fly anglers and is dedicated to growing the sport of fly fishing in Manitoba, particularly among women.

When Kelsey is not on the water, you'll probably find her peering into the trees with some binoculars, as she is also an avid birdwatcher, or sitting at a computer working to finish her Master of Science in Biology.
