About Fishing Club:
-Looking for beginner-intermediate skill level anglers who are interested in slowing down to really focus on dialing in skills like knot tying, casting accuracy, and learning about tackle usage/placement. All skills that will help them to become a better angler overtime!
-We have access to private farm ponds, trout ponds, and river access that will allow us to fish for a variety of species within the area.
-Sessions will begin with an outdoor classroom environment encouraging the kids to sit down and practice tying knots, setting up rods, checking reels, and preparing tackle before getting to the water.
-Guided instruction while on the water
-We will work on tying knots, baiting hooks, accurate casting techniques, proper tackle usage, observing water conditions, identifying fish and more!
-Personal gear is recommended, but not required. All supplemental gear will be provided.
**Fly Fishing gear maybe brought, but will not be provided** (Instruction will be provided for those who bring Fly Fishing Gear)

We currently offer after-school enrichment programs in the area. Please reach out if you would like to coordinate an after-school program through a school or private group!
Under the guidance of positive adult role models, we provide the children a chance to discover their own abilities, stimulating self-esteem and character. From tree climbing, to hiking, to fishing, to mountain biking, to just looking under rocks in the river to see what’s there, we let kids lead the programming as much as possible. We believe the power of observation is one of nature’s most useful tools for learning and are ever ready to stop what we are doing to watch an eagle eat a shad or have a rock skipping contest.
Children will have FUN, learn for themselves, start to see a progression of skill development and build a base that they’ll carry with them their whole lives. We create a safe environment for kids to be kids and enjoy time outside like we did growing up. Fortunately we have the James River Park System in our back yard. What a wonderful playground! Most of the programs take place in the James River Park and other area parks, but from time to time we may visit private locations for specific activities. Pick up is available at area schools with programs dates and schools to be determined before each season.
