The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH)
is pleased to announce Ontario Power Generation
as the official lead sponsor for the OFAH TackleShare Program. Thanks to this program, accessibility to angling equipment is no longer a barrier to people wanting to get involved in recreational fishing. Participating anglers simply sign out a rod and reel as well as an assortment of tackle in the same way that they would borrow library materials. This program is delivered to the public through both the OFAH TackleShare Program Loaner Sites
and the OFAH Travelling TackleShare Program
Since the launch of the OFAH TackleShare Program in 1998, the program has become a huge success with over 100 loaner sites across the province, allowing thousands of new anglers to become involved in recreational fishing. These loaner sites include Ontario Parks, public libraries, Conservation Authorities, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, and other community organizations. Click here

The OFAH Travelling TackleShare program however is not designated to a specific location throughout the year. This portion of the program brings fishing equipment to a certain location for special events. At these events, OFAH Travelling Tackleshare also provides an educational workshop which includes introductory fishing instruction and aquatic habitat conservation. Click here
