Hooked: Inspiring Youth, Creating Opportunity
YDCCF has been proud to support the Bristol Bay Fly Fishing and Guide Academy with scholarship funding. Their 2018 classes will begin this week and many students will receive new Orvis fly rods, and catch a fish in their world-class home rivers for the very first time. They'll also learn customer service, first aid, how to shine in an interview and, perhaps most importantly, impart them with the confidence they’ll need to make a great guide or and see the opportunities that might lie ahead for them in the region’s recreation and tourism industry. In celebration of of Ten Years of growth and success, and looking to the future of the program, the academy, with help from Fly Out, created a short film-- Hooked: Inspiring Youth, Creating Opportunity.
