The Tahoe Truckee Fly Fishers (TTFF)
Cliff Frazier Memorial Youth Fly Fishing Camp
This program honors a treasured original member of TTFF, Cliff Frazier. Cliff was known for his willingness to walk up to a clearly beginning fly fisher and offer his sage advice from casting technique to where to fish to sharing a fly that is working. The two and half day program is designed to quickly prepare a young person with the basic skills to rig their rod, tie the critical knots, understand trout and their behavior and most of all, catch a fish.
With our partnership with the San Francisco Fly Casting Club at their facility on the Truckee River, the students are partnered one-on-one with an experienced club member. Here they fish a stretch of the Truckee that is actively stocked by the SFFCC each year and our experience is that every student catches a fish.
This is the premier youth fly fishing program in the area and for a fee of $75 is a tremendous bargain. The program is offered in July of each year. This year's event is scheduled to occur on July 14-16. Registration for the 2020 event will open at 9am on April 20th. To register go to the TTFF July Event Calendar and click on the event. It is available on a first come basis to 12 youth that have not participated in prior years, aged 10 to 14.
