FAMILY FLY FISHING OUTING: Always a wonderful Southern California family outdoor adventure! The scenery, wildlife, remoteness and solitude really provides for family intimacy and lots of fun! Every family member (up to 5) will learn to cast and then apply skills on the water in the attempt to catch a trout. In addition, hiking, wildlife sightings, streamside and waterfall play, dips in the stream, and 4 x 4 fun if desired. In addition, our guides can conduct on stream aquatic entomology seminars so everyone in the family can observe the aquatic insects that the trout feed on. The family participates in the stream seining collection of the insects. Each family member gets to leave with a vial with the insects they collected preserved and ready to be shown to friends/family. Kids love to show what they found to their class mates and teachers!
