RMFF Education

RMFFers share their knowledge and passion with each other and with people who want to learn more about fly fishing. Members are often found at NDOW sponsored events helping kids to fish, even with bait, and demonstrating how to tie flies. Many of the volunteers for the NDOW fly tying class are RMFFers. At the general events we have presentations ranging from water management, maintaining the local fisheries, tying some specialty flies, and other learning experiences. One of the fun presentations was Tenkara Fishing, which included an outing to Lamoille Canyon to chase trout with Tenkara Rods. In addition we've had very nuts and bolts sessions, such as tying effective knots for fly fishing or tutorials for fishing local waters.

This is John Connelly, first president of the Ruby Mountain Fly Fishers, showing youngsters how to tie the Wooly Bugger.
