SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) — Children in foster care are getting the chance to learn a new hobby: fly fishing. It’s part of a free program that pairs a child with a safe mentor who also teaches them life skills. “I’m hoping these kids can just step out of their normal routine, have some fun, experience nature, and just relax and be a kid for a little while,” said Tyler Kunz, the co-lead mentor for The Mayfly Project. The Mayfly Project has chapters nationwide, including in Salt Lake City.

This project is currently registering children for this season, so please check out the video and send to foster families in your community!
