Fresno Fly Fishers for Conservation is again offering a two-day fly fishing academy in partnership with the San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust and the San Joaquin River Conservancy. Fresno Fly Fishers for Conservation is the oldest fly fishing club west of the Mississippi.

The Academy is designed for young people ages 11 to 15. Instruction will include casting, fly tying, conservation, and a host of other skills offered by regional experts. The course includes a day of education at the Coke Hallowell River Center and one day of fishing in regional waters.

All instructional material and equipment is provided. There is a $25 fee (some scholarships are available) and some adult or parental participation is required. Enrollment is limited to 12 serious young people who would like a hands-on introduction to this engaging sport. If you’re a Boy Scout there will be a Merit Badge Counselor on Site so make sure you bring your card and book for your merit badge.

Applications will be accepted until the course is full.
