Bay Area Youth Fly Fishers - GGACC Launch Event

  • Golden Gate Anglers Lodge & Casting Pools 1232 John F Kennedy Drive San Francisco, CA, 94122 United States (map)

(GPS Address: 1232 John F. Kennedy Dr.)

(Registration has ended for the May 19th event. Please check back for upcoming events!)

This event will be limited to the first 60 youth participants to register, so don’t delay!

The Bay Area Youth Fly Fishers is a collaborative partnership of Bay Area Fly Fishing and Conservation organizations dedicated to enabling a new generation of fly fishers and conservation minded youth. 

Girls and boys will be introduced to a sport they can enjoy for a lifetime with family and friends.  The age range for this May event is narrow by design (2017-2018 school grades 4-7). It’s aimed at drawing younger families who value fun learning activities for their children and reward patience and practice.  This event is the first in a year round program of activities with rewards designed to reinforce accomplishments and skills progression.  Kids will learn about Fly Casting, Knots & Rigging, Fly Tying, and Conservation – all they’ll need to fish with family, friends, mentors and guides.
