Within this curriculum, our mentees can learn how to tie flies, which correlates with our Art of Tying program. We have special Vimeo videos of these tying steps created by professional tier Tim Camnisa, of Trout and Feather, made specifically for The Mayfly Project. Additionally, it details all parts of our program, teaches our mentees all about fly fishing and conservation. It has a unique section that directs the children in our program to notice the mental health qualities that fly fishing and time in nature provides.
Artist, Karl Schwartz, of Bozeman Creative, took Tim’s work and made the tying steps into pictures. We can’t wait for our mentees to use this curriculum and videos to tie flies!
We know this curriculum will continue to impart truths into the lives of the kids we are honored to serve, beyond their time with The Mayfly Project.
We are grateful to the companies and individuals who contributed to support the curriculum. 100% of the donations made went to fund the project paying for artwork, printing and shipping.
