Fly Fishing Camp 2020
July 13 - July 16
***CAMP IS CURRENTLY FULL; IF YOU’D LIKE TO BE ADDED TO THE WAITING LIST, PLEASE EMAIL DAVID TUCKER ([email protected]). THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST!***
For one week every summer, we partner with local guides to offer youth fly-fishing camps in the Big Sky area. Your children will learn about hatches, trout behavior, river dynamics, and much more. For many, this is the first step of many in a lifetime of river stewardship.
Who: Big Sky youth ages 8-13. This summer’s camp will consist of two groups, beginner and intermediate. Each group will have a maximum of 10 campers.
What: Four days of hands-on instruction in the basics of fly fishing and education in watershed health. The curriculum covers casting, knot tying, reading the river, and more, but we also talk river ecology, aquatic insects, and the importance of water conservation.
When: July 13-16. The beginner session runs mornings 8:30am to 12:30pm, and the intermediate session runs afternoons 1:30-5:30pm.
Where: Stream and creeks in the Upper Gallatin Watershed. We have excellent options close to home on the West Fork tributaries, and along the main stem Gallatin in the Canyon.
How Much: $130/day
