GGACC Launch Event:  Saturday, May 19th, 2018    9:15 am to 3:00 pm

Anglers Lodge & Casting Pools, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA

(GPS Address 1232 John F. Kennedy Dr.)

The Bay Area Youth Fly Fishers (BAY-FF) is a collaborative partnership of Bay Area Fly Fishing and Conservation organizations dedicated to enabling a new generation of fly fishers and conservation minded youth. 

Girls and boys will be introduced to a sport they can enjoy for a lifetime with family and friends.  The age range for this May event is narrow by design (2017-2018 school grades 4-7). It’s aimed at drawing younger families who value fun learning activities for their children and reward patience and practice.  This event is the first in a year round program of activities with rewards designed to reinforce accomplishments and skills progression.  Kids will learn about Fly Casting, Knots & Rigging, Fly Tying, and Conservation – all they’ll need to fish with family, friends, mentors and guides.
