BEAVER BROOK On Saturday, the Beaver Brook Rod and Gun Club hosted an educational session for local youth on the ins and outs of fly fishing.
“This is the second year that we have held this event at our pavilion and it is a great event,” Chairman Charles Kaese said. “We take the kids and show them how to tie the flies on the line, as well as how to cast with a fly pole. Casting a fly line is different from a regular fishing line and, in this area, the kids have plenty of room to practice their techniques.”
The members of the Beaver Brook Rod and Gun Club provided fly poles to those kids who did not bring their own.
In addition, many volunteers were on hand to help the kids learn all the aspects of fly fishing.
“The club is hosting an event each month for kids and they really do have a great time,” Kaese said. “We are currently working on getting an ATV class together, as well as some other educational events. All our events are open to the public and the kids are all encouraged to attend.”
