First Cast Program


GSF and TU-San Diego volunteers also teach youth flyfishing classes in the beautiful surroundings of Lake Cuyamaca near Julian. This class is essentially Flyfishing 101 for kids, and the students catch on to the basics in no time. In six hours, the students learn fly fishing equipment, how to cast, tie a clinch knot, tie a wolly bugger, present a fly, and identify insects that trout love to eat. After the instruction they get a chance to fish the lake.
