SPFF is hosting a summer fly fishing experience for the Salvation Army camp along Malibu Creek.
When: Two hours (10:30 am to 12:30 pm) every Wednesday for seven weeks starting June 21st.
Where: Malibu Creek upstream of Tapia Park, just off of Malibu Canyon Road.
Who: Twelve (12) fly fishers will be working each week with 25 Wilderness Campers aged 13-17 years old. Summer of 2017 total will be 175 youth.
What: Two hour program for casting, demonstration fly tying, knots. Most of the time will be spent on the water.
Every year the Salvation Army raises money to bring thousands of inner city children to the Santa Monica Mountains for a week-long nature experience. http://campmtcragsandgilmore.salvationarmy.org
This year, in partnership with Mountains Restoration Trust's environmental education program, 175 Wilderness campers will be exposed to the art of fly fishing. If you enjoy teaching youth and give back to the community, then please sign up. Your reward will be engaging the youth of Los Angeles in the outdoors and fly fishing along Malibu Creek. Large mouth bass and carp inhabit the waters, as attested by Frank Jr several weeks ago (see photos). Lunch served at end of session.
