This month CalTrout joined the Bay Area Youth Fly Fishers for their launch event at the Golden Gate Casting Ponds. Over 40 kids showed up with their families, excited to learn about fly fishing. They had a blast rotating through activities: bug briefing and fly tying, casting, knot tying, and a lesson in fish and water conservation. It was great to see so many people and groups come out and motivate the next generation of fly fishers. In addition to our organization, Trout Unlimited helped as well, along with local fly shop Lost Coast Outfitters, and Bay Area fly clubs, Diablo Valley Fly Fishermen, Grizzly Peak Fly Fishers, Flycasters Inc. of San Jose, and of course the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club, who graciously allowed us to use their facilities and historic Anglers Lodge.
