TackleShare Program

OFAH/OPG TackleShare Program

North Grenville Public Library is excited to announce that we have joined the TackleShare Program. Fishing rods and tackle boxes are available to sign out for free at the Kemptville Branch.

Supported by the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) and Ontario Power Generation(OPG), the TackleShare Program gives new and young anglers the opportunity to go fishing at no cost. There are many barriers to introducing new anglers to fishing; TackleShare programs remove these barriers by providing the equipment and knowledge to get them started. 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 material.

Equipment is available for a one week loan period. 

As a TackleShare site, the library is not responsible for ensuring a borrower’s licensing. The following resources provide information on regulations, licensing, fishing with kids, and places to fish around North Grenville:
