These kids are amazed at the people they don’t know, don’t look like them, with a purpose of showing them a God given love through fly fishing. It just blows their mind! I wanted to say THANK YOU again for spending the day building relationships with our kids! It was so wonderful for them to get to learn and decompress for a little bit!! We appreciate you and your team so much!
