The board of directors of the Fly Fishing Museum of Canada Inc. has lost one of its directors. Monday, June 11th in Magog, died Dale Buzzell following a long illness.
Dale Buzzell was a founding member of the Museum in 2007. He immediately accepted a director position and was at the Museum to welcome visitors during the 2017 season. A brilliant analyst, he has repeatedly put forward suggestions and constructive recommendations.
Expert in the field of fly rods, he has evaluated hundreds in addition to mounting up to a thousand. Many fly fishermen still use rods mounted by Dale Buzzell today.
The Board and the members of the Museum are very grateful for Dale's contribution to the Museum.
