Rizzio Fly Fishing and Conservation Clinic - A Great Time for Young Fly Fishers!

Every year, The Upper Chattahoochee Chapter of Trout Unlimited offers a comprehensive half-day fly fishing clinic for young men and women, ages 10 to 15. The clinic is designed for the beginning fly fisher and provides basic instruction in all phases of fly fishing including fly casting, knot tying, insect identification, and conservation. Certified instructors and mentors work with students to provide individual instruction and answer questions. Each student receives a selection of great fly fishing gear too!

 

Normally held in the Spring, the clinic is limited to 36 students and is offered at a nominal cost. Students are provided all necessary equipment, but are encouraged to bring weather appropriate outdoor clothing, a brimmed hat, sunglasses or prescription glasses (mandatory safety item), insect repellent, and sunscreen. Students who prefer to use their own fly rod may do so. No hooks will be used on the line; this is an instructional day. All instructors are eager to teach the art of fly fishing and pass along their interest in conservation, so bring lots of enthusiasm to class.

 

Students who have previously attended this clinic are not eligible to attend again.
