It’s something he’s been doing for over 50 years now, long before he joined the RCMP. Claude Cipelletti is a local officer who’s been in the force for 16 years, but he also has a love for fly fishing. Next week, he’s representing Canada at the World Fly Fishing Championships as the team Captain.  The three day affair will host approximately 30 national teams, who will be evaluated by number of fish caught and their combined length. The 38th annual world championship will be held in Italy from September 17th to the 23rd. The captain and his team are going this week to prepare, but they’ve been studying leading up to the event too.
