Looking for something exciting and new to try with your kids next weekend? Join NFK at the Heber Valley Fly Fishing Festival located at the Rivers Edge Campground and Resort in Heber City Utah, hosted by Four Season Fly Fishers and organized by the ever-so-great Julie Zicha of Fall River Flyrods .
Because the festival was such a HUGE success last year they decided to extend it to a TWO DAY event this year! It starts bright and early at 9 am next Friday, August 22nd and ends at 6:00pm on Saturday August 23rd (with entertainment going till 8).
Worried about bringing your kids? They have tailored this event to kids in hopes to get them “hooked on fly fishing” (pun intended) by offering casting clinics on Friday, and the Provo River Fly Fishing Derby designed specifically for KIDS on Saturday from 10-3. And can I just tell you that they give away some AWESOME prizes to the kids!? Speaking of kids, my favorite outdoor-loving kiddos, A.J., Jace and Cameron Garcia from Twin Territory will be there doing free fly fishing clinics for your munchkins on Friday and helping with the Derby Saturday! They will also be trading in video games, for great outdoor equipment! So bring your games and score some sweet outdoor swag!
Don’t have any gear? They’ve got you covered there too! Twin Territory will be loaning out kid-specific gear for the little-ones, and other great vendors such as Four Seasons Fly Fishers, Allen Fly Fishing and Jason from Fall River Flyrods will be there with a plethora of rods, reels and lines to try! You will also find a number of the incredibly talented local area artisans and a variety of vendor booths that are all fly fishing related.
Don’t know what you are doing? That’s the BEST part about this event! I had NO clue what I was getting into when I attended this event last year. Mark Forslund, owner of Four Seasons Fly Fishers gave me a one-on-one lesson last year that got me hooked! Four Seasons expert guides , along with industry professionals from several of the hottest fly rod and reel lines in the country will be on-hand to personally answer your questions and offer up tips and pointers. So no worries! You will be in good hands no matter your ability!
Don’t have money? Guess what! The ENTIRE event is FREE! AND there is even FREE live music on both nights from 4-8:00pm as well as FREE barbecue for the whole family. I love it when things are educational, fun and free! So come on down and meet some great people, score some awesome swag and learn to fly fish from the best in the business!
