Enter to win FISHCAMP!

FishCamp™ is a 4 night, 5-day summer flyfishing adventure in Northern California, brought to you by The Fly Shop.

We first opened our tent flaps to generations of future fly fishers in 1998, and over the years we’ve developed the finest youth fly fishing camps in the country. Each summer kids from all across the U.S. come to our very own Antelope Creek Ranch to enjoy a week at FishCamp, a unique program that offers children the opportunity to experience the mystique of flyfishing coupled with the serenity of the outdoors.

Sound like fun? Then all you need to do is write a 100 word essay on why you want to go to FISHCAMP 2012. Staff members from Flyfishing & Tying Journal will pick two winners. Accommodations, meals and equipment will be provided courtesy of The Fly Shop and Fly Fishing & Tying Journal. Kids will need to bring clothes, sleeping bag and transportation to the camp.
