The Mayfly Project is an amazing organization that provides foster children with fly fishing education, experience, and gear through their nationwide projects. Kids that may not otherwise experience the outdoors are given all of the tools and resources that they need to enjoy fly fishing!
There are now over 60 projects in 34 states! Each "project" consists of five sessions, named after the five lifecycle stages of a mayfly. These sessions gradually teach the children everything about fly fishing like fly rod assembly, knot-tying, conservation, casting, and more! By the end of each project, the kids receive all the gear they need to continue the hobby on their own.
In addition to being educational, these projects promote fun, safe spaces that help to promote positive self-esteem that these foster children need.
Because of the amazing work that The Mayfly Project is doing, we are highly motivated to sponsor three kids this year. It costs $780 per child to equip them with all materials and gear needed for a successful introduction to fly fishing; therefore, our goal is to raise $2,340 by May 1, 2023.
There are two ways to help us reach this goal:
1) Consider booking an adventure through us, at GotFishing.com. For each trip booked between January 1 - May 1, 2023, we'll donate $150 towards this goal.
2) Donate directly to The Mayfly Project here.
If this cause resonates with you like it does for us, please consider donating today!
