Minnesota-(Ammoland.com)- A youth paired with an adult can join other youth-adult pairs to learn the basics of fly fishing from experienced mentors over a whole weekend from Friday, May 29, to Sunday, May 31, near Lanesboro, Minnesota.

Applications are available in the events calendar at www.mndnr.gov/minnaqua.

“Participants in this fly-fishing weekend learn how to fly fish, and also hear about aquatic habitat and fish management,” said Deb Groebner, a regional specialist with MinnAqua, an educational program of the Department of Natural Resources. “After the weekend, they will be ready to fly fish for a variety of fish species in lakes, ponds and streams.”

To qualify, youth must be 11 to 17 years old as of May 29, and each youth-adult pair must have less than 10 hours of fly-fishing experience between them.

The registration fee is $125 per pair and includes meals, lodging, guiding services, equipment and additional materials. Sponsorships to offset registration fees may be available from angling and conservation organizations. This event is limited to 20 youth-adult pairs.
