The IGFA recently received an update about the Youth Fly Fishers program announced earlier this summer. Thank you to the IGFA Chairman of the Board, Roy Cronacher, for visiting the latest seminar hosted at the Jackson Hole Fly Fishing School in Jackson, Wyoming, USA. Several young anglers participated in this free seminar to learn about entomology, proper fly selection, and fly casting. These seminars have been going on all summer long thanks to IGFA Trustee Andy Mill and Greys Fishing for making the connections, donating fly rods and reels, and getting youth introduced to the sport of fly fishing. The IGFA looks forward to building on the success of these seminars and creating more fly fishing education programs to teach youth around the world. ... See MoreSee Less
