Free 2014 Youth Education Day

May 10, 2014 8:30 am to 2:30 pm

EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO HIGH WATER. We’re pleased to announce that our 6th Annual Youth Education Day will be on Saturday, May 10th, 2014 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The event will take place at St John’s Episcopal Church in Sandy Hook, CT on the banks of the Pootatuck River.

If you’ve been looking for an opportunity to teach a child about coldwater conservation, the sport of fishing or simply the love of the outdoors this is a great way to get started.

The day will include instruction on fly tying, casting with a fly rod, and river ecosystems and ecology. We’ll also get some hands on experience with trout!
