The Tahoe Truckee Fly Fishers (TTFF)
Cliff Frazier Memorial Youth Fly Fishing Camp
This program honors a treasured original member of TTFF, Cliff Frazier. Cliff was known for his willingness to walk up to a clearly beginning fly fisher and offer his sage advice from casting technique to where to fish to sharing a fly that is working. The two and half day program is designed to quickly prepare a young person with the basic skills to rig their rod, tie the critical knots, understand trout and their behavior and most of all, catch a fish.
With our partnership with the San Francisco Fly Casting Club at their facility on the Truckee River, the students are partnered one-on-one with an experienced club member. Here they fish a stretch of the Truckee that is actively stocked by the SFFCC each year and our experience is that every student catches a fish.
This is the premier youth fly fishing program in the area and for a fee of $75 is a tremendous bargain. The program is offered in July of each year and registration opens in April. The Camp is availlable on a first come basis to 12 students that have not participated in prior years, aged 10 to 14. To see this year's registration and event dates, go to the TTFF April and July Event Calendars, then click on the entry for the Cliff Frazier Memorial.
