The Mayfly Project is a 501(c)(3) national organization that uses fly fishing as a catalyst to mentor and support children in foster care. The mission of The Mayfly Project is to support children in foster care through fly fishing and introduce them to their local water ecosystems, with a hope that connecting them to a rewarding hobby will provide an opportunity for foster children to have fun, build confidence, and develop a meaningful connection with the outdoors.

A local chapter of The Mayfly Project was established in 2021 to support foster children in the greater Hartford area. Tom was one of the first mentors to sign-up, volunteering his time and fly fishing talents to mentor youth on the Farmington River. We had our first class of children this spring and were able to teach them the basics and get them out on the water with an incredible set of mentors. At the conclusion of the program each child is given a fly rod and everything they need to continue fishing on their own.

All of this is at no charge to the children, families or any associated agencies. Please consider a donation in Tom’s honor to provide future opportunities for children to build a love for fly fishing on some of the waters that he treasured most.
