S.A.R.E.P. Youth Fly Fishing Field Trip – May 2011

This past May, we had a little outing with our youth group and a few community members. Along the way, we noticed some mayflies on the road.


The mentors worked with the kids on their casting before we hit the water.

We also discussed approaching the water, entomology and how to read the water before fishing.

On the lower pond, the brook trout were more selective but we were able to find some other beauties.

At the end of this beautiful day, we all realized that the trip wasn’t entirely about catching fish.
