I’m bringing The Mayfly Project to Nevada because I would like to help the sport of fly fishing grow in  my community, and teach the next generation about fly fishing! Fly fishing is not only good for kids in foster care to experience, but they will learn how they can make an impact on their local waters and community.

JEFF KING, MENTOR

Las Vegas, Nevada

I was born and raised in Southern California, and I moved to southern Nevada over 2 decades ago. I was a chef on the Vegas strip for over 10 years. Through the influence of my Finnish uncle, I learned how to fly fish in our local ponds, Lake Mojave and Lake Mead. I am proud to be a mentor for The Mayfly Project, I really try to be of service in our community. If we all did one kind deed a day, we would change the world to a better place in no time.
