Summer Kids’ Clinic With The May Fly Project


Summer Kids’ Clinic With The May Fly Project 


If you’ve attended our summer KIDS’ CLINICS in the past, or planned to get involved this year, please stop by the Museum July 18-19 to pick up an activity pack. In addition to a customized word search and coloring sheets, your kiddos will also receive a copy of the 2020 May Fly Project Curriculum book. We were honored to partner with them in creating the history section and trust this will be an invaluable resource for those newly introduced to the sport of fly fishing. We recommend this for ages 5-15, and please RSVP to if you plan on stopping by!
