All custom rod kits and classes are $100.
Scholarships are available.
Summer Day Camps
4-day Summer Camp is our custom mentoring day camp designed for ages 10-18.
This special and exciting week introduces the many aspects of fly fishing including fly tying, knots, trout habitat and more along with educational field trips and guest speakers.
Students will enjoy fun fishing trips to some of the area’s most beautiful local and private waters. All summer day camps are generally scheduled June through late August.
Cutt Slam Challenge
Picture yourself venturing across Wyoming, searching for Wyoming native fish in unique waters. We are inspired by the Wyoming Game and Fish and challenge anglers to catch all four native cutthroat trout, the Bonneville, Colorado, Snake River, and Yellowstone, in their natural habitat. You'll have a blast on this advanced 4-day trip adventure.
The takeaway from this experience is much more than catching fish. Build confidence in yourself as you learn patience and respect for the outdoors.
Embrace this journey with us at JFF, it will not be easy, but in the end, so worth it.
Must Complete the following prior to the trip:
At least one summer day camp
As necessary, JFF provides all necessary adventure gear, including tents, sleeping bags, and transportation. Campsite and fees, maps, educational literature, food, drinks, waders, and boots are also included.
Just for Girls
Allows girls to be girls! With the help of some of the area’s leading lady fly fishing experts and JFF staff and volunteers, this event will help participating young ladies personally grow, learn and have amazing experiences. This special event promotes community involvement and encourages participants to “give back”.
Learn about our volunteers and what it takes to become one.
