Take Kids Fly Fishing– Getting kids into the wonderful sport of fly fishing is an exciting endeavor, and one that comes with the need for certain equipment and helpful information. For parents it can be a daunting challenge because you cannot walk into most fly shops and find a wide selection of gear for kids. Searching the internet can be frustrating because again, there isn’t one single location that sells all manner of gear for kids.
Fishy Kid- Through exploration of our streams, lakes and oceans, Fishy Kid will provide stimulating education that promotes family values, creativity, conservation and environmental awareness. With fishing trips and outdoor play as the backbone, families will create life long memories that are the foundation of a healthier planet.
