Kid’s Fly Fishing Classes
At The Blue Quill Angler, one of our central passions is getting kids involved with fly fishing. Introducing children to fly fishing is about so much more than showing the basic skills needed to go fly fishing. This is a great way to educate kids on the importance of all life on the planet along with other meaningful values that must be passed down from one generation to the next. In our Kid’s Fly Fishing Class, students will also learn the necessity of conservation along with the reasoning behind it.
What Else Can Kids Learn in Their Fly Fishing Class with The Blue Quill Angler?
In our Kid’s Fly Fishing Class, children between the ages of 8-14 learn the basics of fly fishing including casting, knot tying, rigging a fly fishing rod, fly selection, and fly tying.

Our fly fishing class for kids also provides a constructive setting to mingle with peers while gaining insight from fly fishing experts for skills that can be translated to other aspects of life. In fact, fly fishing is also a wonderful activity for the whole family to enjoy together.
What to Expect from the Kid’s Fly Fishing Class?
Our fly fishing class for kids starts at 10:00 AM and completes at 4:30 PM. Students need to bring their own lunches, a sturdy pair of shoes, rain jacket, sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, and a brimmed hat. We will provide a fly fishing rod, reel, and all the necessary terminal tackle to be used. The first part of the day will be spent learning about fly fishing and getting acquainted with the gear. They’ll learn and practice the knots they’ll need, how to rig the rod, which fly to use, and even some basics of fly tying. These new skills are put to the test in the afternoon when the instructor takes them across the street to the Buchanan Ponds which are heavily stocked for a good chance of catching some nice trout. The class costs just $80 per person, and it’s easy to book your kid’s next fly fishing class right here online.
