Ralph Cutter of the California School of Fly Fishing and California Trout Unlimited are hosting a weekend fly fishing camp for kids, and because some day I hope to dump an (ahem) energetic Little M on a camp full of unsuspecting fly fishing instructors and leave before they realize what’s about to happen to them, I’ll support this one:
Trout Unlimited is extremely pleased to partner with the California School of Fly Fishing and UC Berkeley Sagehen Creek Field Station. This partnership provides Sierra Trout Camp one of the oldest and most respected fly fishing schools in the world, and a venue that many agree is one of the most scenic in the Sierra Nevada.
The UC Berkeley Sagehen Creek Field Station is located on the banks of Sagehen Creek, a coldwater stream containing wild brook, brown and rainbow trout. Facilities include a dormitory, dining hall, classrooms, outdoor meeting shelters, and full-time professional staff.
Sierra Trout Camp 2012 will begin at noon on Friday, June 15th, and end at 5pm on Sunday, June 17th. Girls and boys 9 to 14 years of age as of June 15 are eligible to apply. Trout Unlimited will accept a total of 15 participants. Tuition is $150, and insurance coverage is provided by UC Berkeley Sagehen Creek Field Station.

See you throwing mud clods at the other kids, Tom Chandler.
