Kid's Fishing Day at Unicoi Outfitters in Helen

UPDATE - Kid's Day is full!  We've got 50 young fly-fishers set up and ready to go in two sessions.  We will let you know which session you are scheduled for.  Bring rod & reel and waders if you have them, but if not, that's OK too.  Thanks to all for your interest in this project....We're looking forward to it.  

Fishing For Fun - That's what we'll be doing April 3 at Unicoi Outfitters. This day will be free fishing for all kids age 6-15 on the private waters at Nacoochee Bend in Helen. The fun will start at 9:30 in the morning and each boy or girl will be on the water about 2 hours with an experienced guide. Deadline for signing up is March 27 and this can be done at Unicoi or by calling the shop at 706-878-3083. Fishing times will be assigned after registration is complete.

Equipment will be supplied by Unicoi, but bring your own fly rod and waders if you have them. All fish will be released. Opportunities in fly tying, fly casting, and other activities will be available.

Lunch will be provided by Chef John Cross.

A parent or guardian must be present on the day of the event.

This will be a fun day - what fishing is really about. All the guides are looking forward to it and can't wait to volunteer.

"Kid's Fishing Day" is sponsored by Unicoi Outfitters, the employees that work there, and Foothills Chapter of Trout Unlimited.

Call John Cross at the shop for more information.
