In 2013 a fly fishing course was presented to grade 7-8 students of Sunbury West School in Fredericton Junction NB.
The course was taught by Robin Hanson, David Olive, Ron Jenkins and Nathan Wilbur. Part of the course was given in the Sunbury West School gym and then on the banks of the North Branch of The Oromocto River just 5 minutes walks from the school.
We had 10 rods that were shared by two students per rod, which were graciously donated by a number of our Watershed members and the proceeds of a fundraiser put on by the New Brunswick Paddlers Association.
It really was fun and we all learned a lot. We ended up with 3 broken tips. We will try again this year.
