River Camp Fly-Tying and Casting

River Camp Fly-Tying and Casting

For the second summer in a row, Maine Outdoor School was asked to do a fly-tying workshop with the students of CCLC’s River Camp program at Downeast Salmon Federation’s Wigwams Camp on the Machias River. Fly-tying is the traditional handcraft of using thread to tie various natural materials onto a hook to create a nearly weightless lure that can be used in fly-fishing to catch fish. So it was only natural that this year CCLC also wanted the students to have an opportunity to try their hand at fly-casting as well.
