Fly Fishing Day Camp Richmond

Join Virginia Fishing Adventures for a week of exploring the ins and outs of fly fishing.
This camp is a combination of classroom and on-the-water experience where campers will learn the basics of fly fishing from the cast, to the knots, to the flies, to the fish. Campers will complete the requirements of the fly fishing merit badge through this program as well, including the ultimate, catching fish on their own hand tied flies. Campers should come away from the week as self-sufficient flyrodders. All equipment provided.

What to Bring and Wear to Fishing Camp

Fishing Equipment

Virginia Fishing Adventures will provide all fishing rods/tackle/ bait, etc. However, we certainly encourage those campers with their own rods/reels and tackle to bring them along.

What Should Campers Wear?

1. shorts, bathing suit

2. t-shirt (preferably one you won’t mind having a little fish slime on)

3. sandals with straps, river shoes (like Keens) or old tennis shoes. (Crocs and flip flops are not a good choice as they fall off in the water)

4. Sunglasses (preferably polarized)

What Should Campers Bring With Them?

1. A Bag lunch

2. rain jacket

3. a change of clothes

4. towel

We will have plenty of sunscreen, but we do recommend campers put on sunscreen at home before they are dropped off (30 or higher is recommended as we will be in the sun all day). We will re-apply sunscreen after lunch.

* We will fish rain or shine as long as conditions remain safe.

NOTICE: Please do not send your child to camp with expensive electronic equipment such as i-phones, i-pods, or video games unless you are sure they can handle the responsibility. These things break when they get wet, and we get wet every day. We will not be responsible for any electronics that are lost or broken.

Refund Policy

All deposits for camps and any programs or trips are non-refundable.
We understand that things happen and we do make exceptions in cases of physical injury that will not allow a camper to attend camp. When working with other programs, we adhere to their refund policies.

Please contact us directly if you need to withdraw from any camp, program, or trip.
