As fly fishers we know the therapy and joy of being out on the water. Children in foster care often do not have the same opportunity to connect with nature. This project will work to bridge that gap and help these incredible kids to experience the happiness that being outdoors can bring. Whether we help them find a lifelong passion or find a few days to escape their worries, we cannot wait to share the love of fly fishing with these kids. Nothing compares to your first fish on the fly!

STEPHANI SERRITELLO, LEAD MENTOR

Phoenix, Arizona

Stephanie is a native New Yorker but has been exploring the fisheries of the west and southwest for the past several years. She loves fish so much that not only does she spend her weekends chasing them; she also made them her career. As a Fisheries Biologist, she has spent a lot of time poking dead fish and snorkeling face first into rocks. When not hanging out with fish she can be found chasing her two crazy cattle dogs around and telling them not to eat whatever it is they are eating at the moment. She cannot wait to share her passion with the incredible kids of The Mayfly Project!
