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 Los Gatos Creek County Park Flycasters Casting Ponds in Campbell, CA. This event is aimed at drawing families who value fun learning activities for their children and grandchildren 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.
