Flies for Kids Can Catch

Michael Dell

Recommended Posts

Kids Can Catch is a program facilitated by the Alberta Conservation Association (ACA). There are several events throughout Alberta each year. At each event, volunteers are on on-hand to help kids learn angling skills.

Our chapter has provided volunteers at events, as well as supplied casting bobbers and flies. The bobbers are easy to cast and allow for a presentation of a fly or chironomid using a spinning rod.

This year, we would like to increase the number of flies available to new anglers at the Kids Can Catch events. We are looking for donations of flies that would work well in a lake under a bobber. Suggested patterns include small woolly buggers, chironomids, scuds, leeches, caddis pupae, dragonfly or damselfly nymphs.   Anything that would look good to a 12" fish.  

So tie some flies, or cull some fly boxes. We’ll collect the flies and pass them on to ACA for use at the events.

Our goal is 500 flies! Let us know how many you collect by sending an email to flies@nlft.org, and we’ll keep the results tallied here https://www.nlft.org/2020/12/03/kids-can-catch-fly-collection/

You can send your flies to:
