This is what we did in 2017
The MFFC Youth School is for young people
between the ages of 7 and 16
The program will be held at the
Michigan State University Toll Gate Center
located at Meadowbrook Road and 12 mile Road in Novi, Michigan (map)
There is no cost for the school and all dues paying members
may sponsor a young person for this school
The goal of this program is to provide an enjoyable and positive fly fishing experience for young people while educating them in all aspects of fly fishing. They will be taught stream-side safety and etiquette. They will learn about the different kinds of fly rods, reels, lines, and leaders. Fly rods will be provided so that each student will learn the proper methods of casting. Then, with school-supplied tools and materials, they will be taught how to tie a streamer and a dry fly which they will use in the afternoon to catch fish.
Our instructors are club members who are avid fly fishers and are eager to share their talents and knowledge with the students, who may someday join our club and meet with us in our favorite fishing holes.
Details of the school agenda will be communicated to participants prior to the end of April.
Lemonade and a box lunch will be provided to participants.
Invite a young person to come and join us for a fun filled day that we are sure they will remember for a long time.
