Default Opportunity for kids to learn to fly fish at summer camp

Local fly fishers from the Shasta Trinity Fly Fishers and Shasta Mayflies will again be sponsoring six youth, ages 10 through 15, to attend a week-long fly fishing camp this summer.

It is the mission of the club to spread fly fishing knowledge and enjoyment to the next generation, as well as help them learn to appreciate our local streams, rivers, and lakes.

For the past fourteen years, The Fly Shop of Redding has run a kid's Fish Camp, being held at its private preserve, Antelope Creek Ranch, near Weed.

The experienced pros at this camp teach youth various casting techniques, how to select and tie on artificial flies, how to read the waters, and how to land and safely release the fish they catch.
Other fun parts of the camp experience include great meals, nightly campfires, fly tying lasses, and group games.

These scholarships will be for camp sessions held in June or July.

Each session is limited to 20 campers.

The full $750 cost of the five-day and four-night program, including accommodations, meals and equipment, will be covered for six youth ages 10 through 15 by the Shasta Trinity Fishers and Shasta Mayflies scholarships.

Although youth from all over the United States attend these summer sessions of Fish Camp, only those from Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama and Trinity counties are eligible to participate in this contest to win one of the six scholarships.

Any youth age 10 through 15 who would like to apply for a scholarship, is asked to complete a one-page application available via the Internet at www.theflyshop.com, or by mail through a call to Dick Recchia of the Shasta Trinity Fly Fishers at 530-547- 9720.

For complete information about Fish Camp, go to www.theflyshop.com and click on Schools/Camps.

Completed applications should be sent to Fish Camp Scholarships, P.O. Box 990002, Redding, CA 96099- 0002.

All submissions must be received by April 2. Winners and alternates will be announced and notified by April 13
