Fly Fishing Presentation for 4-H Club

Posted by Ryan Fifield | Posted in Fifield News | Posted on 22-04-2018

On this beautiful Earth Day, we had the privilege of teaching the awesome Team Clover 4-H Club, a bit of how to be Jr. fly fishing anglers and connected that with environmental stewardship. We stressed to them to carry out more then they carry in. They learned about our drift boat and how it works and they all got to climb in and either be a guide or a client. We went over to the learning table that we set up to check out the bug life on the Upper Delaware River. We had photos of the real bugs and tied flies of them for the students to compare. They appeared intrigued by the variety of flies. We gave them a hatch chart so when they’re down by the river, they’ll have an idea of what hatches will be on the water throughout the season. We also gave each member a copy of the book, “The Orvis Kids’ Guide To Beginning Fly Fishing” by, Tyler Befus, along with a graham cracker bug snack. All the kids were naturals when it came to casting a fly rod. The future of our sport is looking very promising with children like these on the water! Thanks so much Mrs. Bull for inviting us, we had a blast! #4HJrAnglers #EarthDay2018 #FifieldOutfitters
