Volunteers from New Mexico Trout conduct fly fishing clinics for youths (ages 8-16) and adults, allowing up to 20 participants the opportunity to fish the rivers on the Preserve. Participants spend a half day learning about equipment, tackle, knots, stream insect sampling and identification. Participants will have time to practice their casting in the morning and then head for the stream in the afternoon. Bring a lunch to enjoy along the stream and be prepared for weather. This activity is extremely popular, so sign up early.
The Clinic schedule for 2014 is as follows:
June 7 Youth June 8 Adult
July 19 Youth July 20 Adult
Aug 16 Youth Aug 17 Adult
Please inform your friends and neighbors of these dates. The clinics will be held from 8:30am to 5:30pm each day. Interested parties can get more information and sign up at http://www.vallescaldera.gov/comevisit/special/.
Anyone interested in volunteering to help with these clinics should contact Francis Peter (firstname.lastname@example.org or 980-3444) and provide your name, email address, and phone number. This is a wonderful opportunity to spend time on the Valles Caldera, a magical place.
