Want to learn more about the sport of fly fishing and have some fun? Come by the Kids’ activities in the Expo Hall 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., July 25-27! Learn about the bugs that fish eat, tie a fly, learn a new knot by tying it yourself, see what’s inside a fish, and learn a basic cast! Join other youth for some fun and learn stuff about fly fishing!
Do you know of any youth who are interested in learning about fly fishing? If you do, then plan on signing them up for the annual FFI Fly Fishing Expo Youth Camp. We are excited to be in Bozeman, MT for the fly fishing event and teach youth about the sport of fly fishing.
Registration for the camp will be available starting May 7. Register youth through online Expo Registration, by going to our Camp registration link (available from this page), or by calling the FFI office.
This year’s Youth Camp will be held July 25-26. The Camp will begin each day at 9:00 a.m. and conclude at 4:00 p.m. with a lunch break (lunch included) and will be an exciting program full of learning, fun and fishing. It is designed for ages 8-17 and will offer topics including entomology, fly tying, equipment and accessories, explanation of the balanced system, angler ethics, fishing safety, abeyance to regulations, catch and release, fly casting, and finally FISHING. The class will qualify a Boy Scout towards the Fly Fishing Merit Badge (need: Scout’s leader name & address. A letter will be sent to the Scoutmaster with the items that were accomplished).
The classroom portion of the Youth Camp will be held at Montana State University. On the second day, casting will be conducted on a University field, with fishing to follow at a local fishing area, (to be determined). Note: If poor weather creates a hazard for outdoor portions, we will attempt alternate arrangements, otherwise be prepared for general inclement weather. We appreciate patience and flexibility to adapt to whatever conditions exist. Have a hat, glasses, sunscreen, water bottle and any needed medications. Please make mention of any health issues, concerns, or allergy (food/medical), when registering and attend to special dietary restrictions individually. Fishing equipment can be provided if needed.
We will all have a great time and a good experience! Class is limited to the first 20 egistrants for each day. All youth 11 and under must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Register online when registration opens or call the FFI office. Volunteers are needed to ensure the youths are safe and having fun. Some youth will be new to fly fishing and guidance is needed. To volunteer, go HERE to sign up. For questions feel free to contact the FFI Office, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 253-278-0061. We look forward to meeting our participants and another great FFI Youth Camp experience.
