Fly fishing with the kiddos

Couresy of

There is something to be said for the memories we have of spending a day one-on-one with a parent, grandparent, or any other loved one – a memory of grabbing ice cream or simply throwing the football around is something that brings a smile to people’s faces years and years later.

Memories are powerful.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will be giving youth-adult pairs a chance to create more of those memories through a program that teaches fly fishing. There a few requirements to participate: The youth side of the pair must be between the ages of 11 and 17 as of April 27, and the adult and youth must have less than 5 hours of fly-fishing experience between them.

The event will take place from the evening of April 27th to the afternoon of Sunday, April 29th near Lanesboro, Minnesota. Experienced instructors will work with all the youth-adult pairs throughout the weekend.

The registration fee for participation is $130 per pair, which includes all the necessities – i.e. meals, lodging, guiding services, equipment, and additional materials. Sponsorship may be available from angling and conservation organizations to help offset the cost of registration. If interested, act quickly as the event is limited to 20 youth-adult pairs.
