Presented by: Golden Gate Trout Unlimited

As part of BAYFF, Golden Gate Trout Unlimited’s 18th Annual First Cast Day will be held at the Marin Civic Center Lagoon on Sunday, Sep 15, 2019. Youth ages 10-18 years old (accompanied by their parents or guardian) are invited to an introduction to fly fishing.

This event is aimed at drawing families who value fun learning activities for their children and grandchildren that reward patience and practice.

Registration for the event is free, limited to 36 participants. Activities commence at 8:30 AM. The participants will rotate through six teaching stations, with 30 minutes spent at each station, which include:

  • Reading the Waters,

  • Gear & Rigging

  • Knots

  • Fly Casting

  • Fly Tying

  • Entomology

Adults may also take lessons with a Master Casting Instructor, learning not only how to fly cast like a champion, but also how to coach their youngster in fly casting.

A BBQ lunch will be served with cheeseburgers, hotdogs, salads, fruit, beverages, and chocolate chip cookies.

Please note: the event location will be at the Civic Center Lagoon picnic area on the south side of the lagoon near the playground on Civic Center Drive, San Rafael.
