The Anglers of the Au Sable sponsor this annual event. This is our 7th Kids One-Fly (Box) Challenge for anglers 17 years and younger. All participants will receive a complimentary fly box with donated flies and, if needed, volunteer chaperones to take them to the river (or pond, or lake, or creek) for a morning of fishing. Awards! Prizes! Anglers must use the flies in their box of choice. We do this because kids are awesome, and a kid fly-fishing is even awesomer. Our favorite event of the year.

We’ll meet at the lodge at 9am…Kids receive instruction and a casting lesson from FFF Certified Instructor Mark Hendricks. At 10:30am, we go fishing! Meet back at lodge between 12 and 2pm for lunch, drinks, and awards. We try to have enough rods and waders for youth participants, but encourage those that have their own to bring them.
