Default Fly fishing for school credit?

As I learn more about fly fishing, it strikes me that there may be enormous potential to use fly fishing as a curriculum to teach the physics of fly line momentum, biology of insect life, art of fly tying, geomorphology of rivers, environmental science of conservation, political science of fish & game management, and a myriad of other applied arts and sciences all in a uniquely engaging setting that no other curriculum could offer. In this time when parental choice and flexibility in education has emerged, it seems like the time may be ripe for the design of a certified curriculum based on fly fishing. Is anyone aware of this being done?
