Fly Fishing Trout Camp
Body: 

New England is home to hundreds if not thousands of summer camps every year. But if you’re looking for a camp that specializes in fly-fishing they are few and far between. In 2011 the Mad Dog chapter of Trout Unlimited launched its first fly-fishing camp for teens. Since then they’ve been spawning a new school of enthusiastic fly fishermen and women every summer.

Becoming an Outdoor Family
Body: 

Since 1997, Groton State Forest has hosted Vermont’s Becoming an Outdoor Family workshop. For three days each spring, this annual event gives families the opportunity to camp, enjoy the park, and learn outdoor skills. More than 40 different hands-on classes are offered during the weekend. They showcase the wide variety of outdoor activities available to Vermonters, and help instill a basic understanding of environmental conservation. The only thing better than spending time outdoors, is spending time outdoors with your family.

Fishing with Kids
Body: 

With more activities available to kids than ever before, fewer are taking advantage of the wonderful fishing in their own backyard. The best time to get someone interested in fishing is when they're young, and Vermont offers dozens of events to help introduce your child to the ancient art of angling. One of these events is the Gunner Brook Fishing Derby held in Barre, Vermont. Created over 70 years ago, It's the first fishing derby just for children in the United States. It's traditionally held on the Saturday before Father's Day and attracts children from all over the state. It's organized by the Barre Fish and Game Club. Participants must be 14 years or younger and there is a 3-fish limit per angler. We visit the 2003 derby and host Lawrence Pyne heads out on Monkton Pond with his kids to share some tips on how he keeps fishing fun and exciting for his family.
