Youth Fly Fishing Clinic

Gordon Tornberg, Director of Education

This coming April, 2017, the Granite Bay Flycasters will have a special opportunity to get young people interested in fly fishing.  The Cameron Park Community Services District has asked us to put on a fly fishing clinic for up to 10 students in ages from 12 to 18 years old.

The clinic is scheduled to be held on Saturday, April 22nd and 29th, from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon.  It will be a two day clinic and cover the six essential elements of a fly cast.  Students will learn the role cast, the pickup and laydown forward cast, and false casting. In addition, students will learn basic fly fishing needs including the various types of fly rods, reels, lines, and flies.

In order for the club to make this a successful clinic and encourage an interest in fly fishing, your help is needed.  Since the clinic will be limited to 10 students, we should have at least 5 or more members as teachers/coaches.

So, please help out and sign up for this very worthwhile clinic at the February or March meeting or email me at tornberg2@sbcglobal.net.

Your support is greatly appreciated.
