Tackle Share ProgramA father and son fishing off the end of a dock.

The Greater Sudbury Public Library is continuing a partnership with Ramakko's Source for Adventure to expand on the tackle share program that was piloted last year. Fishing rods and tackle boxes are available to sign out for free from two library locations - Main Public Library and New Sudbury Library.

Supported by the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) and Ontario Power Generation, the Tackle Share Program gives new and young anglers the opportunity to go fishing at no cost. There are many barriers to introducing new anglers to fishing on today's waters. Tackle Share 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 period.
