Don't know in any of you are in the Santa Barbara, California area and have, or are kids in the 10 to 15 year old age group but I wanted to point out a great opportunity for getting some free training in the many aspects of fly fishing and extend an invitation to apply.

The Santa Barbara Flyfishers is holding a Fly Fishing Academy on June 25th to 26th. Details and an application can be found here:

The kids will not only receive instruction in casting, fly tying, reading water, etc. but will also be awarded a great fly rod and reel and graduation certificate. You must apply by June 12th.
