Fly Fishing Mentoring Forum – Friday, March 17th 4:00-5:00pm Bush Ballroom

Experienced anglers play a critical role in mentoring beginner fly fishers! How can organizations meet the growing demand for mentors to provide hands-on, personalized instruction and encouragement? Join us to discuss opportunities, challenges, and ideas for fostering a strong, diverse mentor pool in Minnesota!

This session will be facilitated by representatives from Fly Fishing Women of Minnesota, Trout Unlimited, International Federation of Fly Fishers, and DNR MinnAqua. Participants will receive examples of fly-fishing education resources. This will be held in the Bush Ballroom, upstairs from the main expo entrance.
