Atlanta, Georgia Project

Georgia foster care children deserve an escape from the everyday, with our amazing mentors and fly fishing community in Georgia, we are going to provide the kids with a much needed break from the trials and turbulence of their current situations and give them a new love and respect for the outdoors and the healing potential nature can provide.

ZACH YAUCH, LEAD MENTOR

Atlanta, Georgia

An Arizona born but Georgia raised angler, Zach was brought up on spin fishing in the North Georgia mountains. Using skills his grandfather taught him, he quickly became a dedicated fly angler. Now Zach resides in Jefferson, GA. Where he travels for his job and fishes all over the country. A multispecies angler, who looks for any opportunity to teach and share his love for this great sport. His grandfather was a great mentor in life and fishing, with this in mind, Zach is eager to be the same type of mentor to children in need as his grandfather was to him.
