August 9th the Canadian Border opens to vaccinated U.S. travelers.

Unfortunately we are not immigration specialists at the Fly Shop, but we want you to come up for a visit this summer. Please do your research on entering Canada and look at the challenges of traveling at this time. Rumors of canceled flights , rental car availability are all plausible factors that could affect your travel plans.  Below is a basic information link that is a good starting point.
