Why go fishing, you ask? There are many reasons to cast a line into the water. Fishing is a great way to learn about fish and the rivers and streams where they live. All methods of angling (another word for fishing) connect us to the natural world. When we go out, we can see the importance of respecting the environment and protecting our streams and rivers. Fishing is an activity where you can have fun outside with your friends and family — a healthful life-long sport where learning is always an adventure. So get out on the water, and get hooked on fishing!

Our friends at Orvis have a great Fly Fishing learning center online.  Check it out!
