Flies for Kids
Flies for Kids started in 2013 with an idea from Kevin McKay of maineflyfish.com to try to make it easier for kids to get into fly tying. Eldredge Bros. Fly Shop joined forces with Kevin because we thought this was a great thing to do. There are many children out there who would love to get into fly fishing or fly tying but they have no one in their life that does either. Last years Flies for Kids was such a great success that we’ve decided to do it again in 2015. In 2014 we raised enough money to buy 30 fly tying kits at a generous discount from Wapsi. All but a couple kits have been handed to children who expressed an interest in fly tying.
Here is how it works;
Fly tiers from around the country donate flies that we put into Cliff Bugger Beast fly boxes that are donated by Cliff Outdoors. As each fly box fills to capacity we add another fly box and start to fill that one.
We sell raffle tickets for chances to win the entire selection of flies and Cliff boxes that we have accumulated. Tickets are $10.00 each. We draw a winner the night after our Fly Fishing Expo which will be March 28th, 2015.
Please send money for raffle tickets, including your name, phone number and address to;
