There will be a youth fly fishing clinic on Saturday, March 15, 2008 near Oroville, California. The clinic is sponsored by the the Wilderness Unlimited Foundation (WUF) and the Northern California Council Fly Fishing Federation (NCCFFF).
The one-day fly fishing clinic will be held at the "99 East" Ranch of Wilderness Unlimited (WU) and is open to all youth between ages 10-16 interested in learning the basics of fly fishing. No previous experience is required.
The clinic, part of WUF’s ongoing fly fishing education program, is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. There is a student expense fee of $30, which covers take-home materials, use of equipment and lunch.
The seminar is limited to 16 students, who will be broken up into four groups. During the day each student will have personal, one-on-one instruction on entomology, knot-tying, casting and fly-tying.
All students will be given ample fishing time as well. The facility is one of Wilderness Unlimited's fisheries, with ponds holding trout, bass, bluegill and catfish.
Reservations are required to attend the youth fly fishing event.
