Liam Wood Fly Fishers and River Guardians

WEN has created a new crop of fly fishers and river guardians!

Everyday from August 15th to 19th, WEN had the opportunity to teach high school students more about river stewardship through the social lens of fly fishing. It was great to see them in one week learn about the responsibility that comes with fly fishing to protect and care for our local rivers. At the end of the week I noticed a huge change in their attitudes compared to the beginning of the week. I also felt like I learned so much as the week went on; it is amazing what can happen in one week!

My favorite moment of the week: the students peacefully fly fishing at the Bitterroot River on the last afternoon
