Kids Camp - Fly Fishing II

Kids Camp - Fly Fishing II

July 11-15.
Time: 8:30a-12:30p
Cost: $200
Ages 9-11

This class, in partnership with Thorne Ecological Institute, is perfect for the student who has taken Thorne’s Fly Fishing I Class or who has a good amount of experience as an angler. This class spends less time on the basics of gear and casting, and more time on the water exploring our favorite fly fishing spots along Boulder Creek and St. Vrain Watersheds! Building on what we learned in Fly Fishing I, we will be challenged with more advanced skills, like new knots, different casting techniques, and selecting the proper flies. Students learn about the ecology of fly fishing, such as understanding hatches, the life cycles of insects and the fish we catch, and our ethical approaches to interacting with the natural world. This class aims to give students a deeper appreciation of the sport of fly fishing and an opportunity to catch more fish. NOTE: This class meets at different locations around Boulder County to provide the best place for the class’s specific subject matter. Parents will be e-mailed 1-2 weeks prior to class with directions to the specific locations and a gear list. Tuition includes class flies, but students should bring their own rod, reel, line, and a few flies (discount available at Front Range Anglers).
