In partnership with the National Park Trust and Trout Unlimited, TAPS has prepared for you a unique opportunity to share time in the great outdoors with your fellow survivors through fly fishing! Every participant will be provided with a rod, reel and small tackle box to take home and will have the opportunity to learn from our friends at Trout Unlimited the basics of fly fishing!

All ages and accessibility levels are welcome to attend. Lunch, snacks and water will be provided as well as all fishing equipment.
