Fish for Change is a refocus on who, how, and why we are fly-fishing

Connection – Education – Conservation- Exploration 

To use fly-fishing as a platform to make the world a better place by uniting a diverse group of students in wild fisheries where they engage in a variety of initiatives that promote Connection, Education, Outreach, and Exploration.

Fish for Change is excited to bring the movement full circle with our Colorado course.

Students float the Black Canyon of the Gunnison River for 5 days while participating in Colorado Adaptive Angling courses led by Matt Selig.

Students learn to teach fly-fishing to adaptive anglers while fly-fishing through the Black Canyon. After floating the Gunnison, students head to the Colorado Mountain College in the Roaring Fork Valley where they base for engaging with Colorado Adaptive Angler and the Roaring Fork Conservancy.

Students spend 4 days teaching fly-fishing and working on service projects in the Roaring Fork Valley and finish the course by fish-floating the Colorado River with professional guides.
