Kids Learn To Fish


The Kalamalka Flyfishers Society along with the Shuswap Fly Fishers, Enderby Fish and Game Club, with fish provided by the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC present a day for kids to learn how to fish hosted by the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre.

The day is about more than catching fish, although that does happen. Kids are encouraged to attend a variety of stations: fly tying, fly casting, fishing pond, entomology (insects), and others and have their pass book stamped. They can then enter their pass book to win a number of prizes.

Volunteers are on hand to explain the proper use of fishing tackle and assist the kids as needed.

Introduction To Fly Tying

Learn to tie your own flies with the help of the Kalamalka Flyfishers Introduction to Fly Tying. Designed for the person who has never tied flies and is interested in getting started in the art of fly tying. This course will teach you all the skills you will need to start tying your own flies. For the person who has not tied in awhile, wanting to get back into fly tying, the Introduction to Fly Tying is a great refresher.

The Introduction to Fly Tying course is 10 nights (2 hours each). Held only once a year beginning in mid January until March. Classes are usually on Tuesday nights from 7:30 pm until 9:30 pm at the Kalamalka Flyfishers Society meeting room located upstairs of the Rocky Mountain Transport office 2906 41st avenue, Vernon.
