Thursdays July 6 - July 27

10 am - 11 am

All kids age 6-12 are invited to join us on Thursday mornings at the AMFF for adventures into the world of fly fishing. Each week, we will explore a different aspect of the sport. Lessons are not cumulative, so feel free to stop by any week and join in on the action.

We do ask that a parent or guardian remains on site during the activities. Snacks for participants are  included. Programs will be rain or shine, and all lessons are free and open to the public.
