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.
The Canadian Fly Fishing Museum is a non-profit organization, whose mission is to collect, preserve, promote, propagate and pass on the material and immaterial fly fishing heritage to all Quebecers and Canadians by means of exhibitions, cultural and educative activities.
Furthermore, its mandate is to gather material and immaterial collections, to preserve them for present and future generations, to be a source of fly fishing knowhow and to make this knowledge available to all. In doing so, the Museum will be an integral part of the cultural and social development of the community to facilitate acquisition, preservation, propagation and the interaction amongst all associated with fly fishing.
