Moving Past the Pests and Looking Forward to an Awesome Fishing Season


Here at Brock’s Fly Shop, we like little critters when we use them in bait and we tolerate them when we are out in the wild, but we don’t like them when they are in places they shouldn’t be!

As you may be aware, we had to shut down the shop for the last couple weeks. The reason? We had termites eating away at our store. Fortunately, was able to help us with the problem before things got out of hand.

We could have avoided the store being closed if we identified the termites earlier. So, we advise you take a look at this video so you are aware of any termite problem before it gets out of hand.

The whole experience was quite annoying, but we are happy to move past it and reopen our shop. We are very excited about the upcoming fly fishing season, and as a welcome back special, we are offering 50% off all of our fly fishing bait including maggots, worms grubs, ants, as well as all fly fishing lures, even the electronic ones.


It hasn’t been the warmest spring so far, but the forecast for the summer in Ontario looks very promising, with nice spring weather spread across the province as soon as May rolls around.

For any newbies who are looking to get into fishing this year, we have several starter packages on sale that we would be happy to assist you with.

The license-free family fishing days in Ontario this summer run from July 2-10.

As always, we offer a few fly fishing training courses to help any age learning how to fly fish properly. We have yet to see the days for these, but we will be doing so very soon. Stay posted!

If most of us only afford to rent a limo on special occasions for a couple of hours and on small distances, there are others who actually own one or more of these luxurious cars. So not all of us can only be kings for a day. So here are the most expensive and most luxurious limousines & Party Bus out there found with our favourite party bus.
1. Batmobile

When you are so rich that a regular, everyday limo just isn’t enough, of course you get yourself a BBatmobile built. This car was, of course, inspired from the Batman movie series from the 90s and it turns out that it was the most expensive limo built in 2012. Apart from its futuristic look, when it comes to functionality this car really has every reason to amaze you. It has all the gadgets from the original Batmobile in the series. Rocket and missile launcher, jet engine, rear flaps and even ejectable front and back wheels, this limo has it all. And when you think that you could own it for the price of 4.2 million dollar. Yes, that’s how much it costs, 4.2 million dollars, no joke. Well, come to think of it, it does have a jet engine, so it might be worth it after all.
2. The American Dream
This party limo has the most suitable name! It really is what the American dream is all about. It was designed and built by Jay Ohrberg, a car and limousine enthusiast, especially when it comes to famous cars built for films and television.

Apart from having armored plates that can even be effective in stopping RPGs, the limo is also fitted with oxygen tanks, firefighting equipment, shotguns, teargas canisters, and even grenade launchers.

Windshield Repair Processes You Didn’t Know About

windshield-rock-chip-repairing services described

Just since you get a chip doesn’t suggest you have to foot the expense of getting a new windscreen. Why not do a windscreen repair service, which uses contemporary innovation to rapidly and effectively fix the windscreen, It’s a far more expense effective option. Here’s how windscreen repair. If you think of it, you’ll concur that regular home glass is very amazing. It’s strong, clear, and really fairly inexpensive. Its only actual disadvantage is that it is fragile so when it breaks it can create hazardous shards, making it a poor choice for car glass.
Plastic is safer, but it isn’t really scratch resistant so it does not remain clear enough for vehicle glass. Car makers’ usage tempered glass on the side windows which is much more powerful than home glass and when it does break, it breaks into small little cubes that aren’t as hazardous as fragments. They can still be sharp but they are far more secure.
However tempered glass doesn’t work for windscreens. Since the windshield is continuously being struck with tiny pebbles, sand, gravel, and other road particles, tempered glass would have an extremely brief life expectancy. So manufacturers began using laminated glass years back.

Laminated glass is just 2 thin sheets of tempered glass that are merged to a rubber inner layer. The two sheets are independent. Exactly what the rubber layer does is imitate a sponge, taking in the shock and reducing the possibility of damage from little particles like pebbles.
But it generally just breaks the external layer of glass if a rock strikes the window hard enough you’ll land up with a stone chip. The rubber membrane will stop the windshield from falling in your lap if something actually big hits the window and shatters both layers. Windshield repair works for the rock chips that have actually damaged the outer layer of the glass.
Start by buying a windshield fracture repair service kit at Wal-Mart, Sears, Canadian Tire, Lordco or other department or auto stores like Hamilton Glass Experts. Dry the windshield to space temperature once you’ve got your kit. Do not trouble trying to do the repair work on a wet day unless you can park inside.
Make use of a hair dryer to dry the window. This will pull the moisture out of the window so that the repair. Clean it utilizing a harsh cleaner such as lighter fluid if the windshield is dirty. This will eliminate any grime or film.

The repair process is really straightforward. Peel the back of the adhesive strip and use it to the pre-cleaned glass. It over the chip, then burnish with a candid object.
Hold this position for one minute to develop a vacuum. While you are holding the vacuum the air in the fracture begins to bubble up in the syringe while at the same time the adhesive seeps deep into the glass and chip.
You can likewise use the windscreen repair service kit on cracks. When you’ve properly done the repair, the glass will no longer spider and the damage will not spread out.
Why not do a windscreen repair service, which makes use of modern innovation to rapidly and effectively repair the windshield, It’s a much more expense reliable solution. Tempered glass does not work for windshields. Since the windshield is continuously being struck with tiny pebbles, sand, gravel, and other road debris, tempered glass would have an extremely brief life span. Windscreen repair service works for the rock chips that have actually destroyed the external layer of the glass.
You can also utilize the windshield repair kit on cracks.

Ottawa Limousine Service Takes Brock’s Fly Shop on an Incredible Tour

What an incredible week Brock and I have had. The luxury experience of touring through Ottawa for 3 days on a perfect Fall Vacation by renting The Ottawa Limousine Company Service to take our breath away.

The Ottawa Limo Company Touring us around for 3 days in the nations capital

Now, it’s no surprise that this was a beautiful touring experience for our visit to Ottawa! Was kind of nice to break up our usual fishing trips with a 5 star getaway complete with hotel stays and amazing chef prepared cuisine. I don’t always grab about trips especially on our site but gosh I want everyone to go.

For a little background for people that aren’t familiar with Ontario. Ottawa is Canada’s capital although I often feel like it should be Toronto. They only have about 950,000 population but there a pro NHL team tere called the  Ottawa Senators. Kind of far from downtown but a great thing to have especially if you’re raising kids like us. The architecture we saw was some of the most beautiful places i’ve seen in my travels through Canada. Here’s a picture of some of the buildings, museums and of course Parliament Building that our chauffeured limo service provided.1024px-OttawaCollage

Our first stop was at the Canadian museum of Nature. What a wild place this is. There is a ginormous T-rex skeleton and a stuffed taxidermy version of nearly every Canadian wildlife species. You feel like you’ve seen the entire countries wilderness after being through the place. Did I mention the fish OMG the FISH!! haha I had to talk about fishing as I may be a tourist to the are but I belong on a boat but occasionally am well suited to a Limousine. I think they said The Nature museum in Ottawa was 10 million square feet of exhibits. We had a pairing with a group so we saved on their 15 person rate.  A Lot of the members of our travel group were there for Ottawa’s Internaitonal Writer’s festival. Which, now that I think about it, probably inspired me to write a new blog post!

So the first day we enjoyed the museum and ended up down in Byward Market at a bar called The Warehouse. Pretty young crowd and awesome rooftop patio. I just wish it was a bit warmer.

The next way we just had to go to The Parliament Buildings. It’s literally unreal! There was tragedy there is year with Nathan Corillo being shot and killed so it was a bit disturbing seeing the RCMP guys standing at the same place she was attacked. None the less it was a great time to be there. All the maple tree’s were changing colours. Our limousine driver, Justin, was great, you wouldn’t believe the deal that he gave us on not only the stretch lincoln town car limousine but we also ended up joining another group that rented a party bus.

After Parliament Hill we made our way to Sparks Street Village and stopped at a few of the shop along the way. It was an incredible stone street that was gushing with culture. Being as I am Irish I always need to go to the BESt Irish pub in town. According to our limo driver the best Irish Pub in Ottawa is a little place called Patty Boland’s. The staff there seamed like they were a little slice of heaven. Quite happy to serve Brock and I a pint before we departed.

Next it was my turn to force Brock into my kind of vacation! A stop at the Holtz spa. HE cringed his way through a massage while I thoroughly enjoyed every last second of my half intoxicated spa experience.

By this time, I had worked up quite the appetite and found myself a Canadian dessert to die for, the notoriously delicious Beaver Tail! Just look at these treats we found at Dow’s Lake in Ottawa:
Beaver Tails In Ottawa

BY this time I was half in the bag and drooling over a chocolate peanut butter pastry dessert. What do you think I felt like doing next!? Nap? Yup, we went back to our place on Elgin Street for a quick snooze. Then I had the bright idea! Quebec is right next door, why won’t we hire our limo guy again to take us over to Casino du Lac-Leamy.

That place isn’t seemingly that popular as there weren’t many people inside. But wow was it a nice spot. I played some blackjack and Brock won a few bucks on roulette. Super fun way to coast into the evening. We were so happy with that Casino…well they did lose some money to us after all, so we stuck around a watch dome live stand up Comedy at the theatre that was attached. Quite a memorable time and I can’t wait to head to back to Ottawa again and rent a limousine for our next Vacation in Ontario.
