Bay Area Youth Fly Fishers - GGACC 2019 Launch Event

  • Golden Gate Angling & Casting Club - GG Park in SF 1232 John F Kennedy Drive San Francisco, CA, 94122 United States (map)

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. 

Kids ages 9-12 years old are invited to an introduction to fly fishing at the world famous Golden Gate Angling & Casting Club in San Francisco. This event is aimed at drawing younger families who value fun learning activities for their children and reward patience and practice.  Kids will learn about Fly Casting, Knots & Rigging, Fly Tying, and Conservation – all they’ll need to fish with family, friends, mentors and guides.

Additional Bay Area Youth Events will be scheduled in 2019 to reinforce accomplishments and skills progression.  

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