A youth paired with an adult can join other youth-adult pairs to learn the basics of fly fishing from experienced instructors from the evening of Friday, April 27, to the afternoon of Sunday, April 29, near Lanesboro.

“Youth and adults in these classes are both beginners so they can learn to fly fish together,” said Deb Groebner, a regional specialist with MinnAqua, an educational program of the Minnesota DNR. “When they finish the weekend, they’ll be ready to take on more fishing adventures for a variety of species.”

To participate, youth must be 11 to 17 years old as of April 27, and adult and youth must each have less than five hours of fly-fishing experience.

The registration fee is $130 per pair and includes meals, lodging, guiding services, equipment and additional materials. Sponsorships to offset registration fees may be available from angling and conservation organizations. This event is limited to 20 youth-adult pairs.
