In this session campers enjoy full participation in Squash and Beyond camps at Blairs Academy while learning the basics of fly fishing from experience fishermen also serving as squash instructors at the camp.
How does it work?
Campers will enjoy normal squash camp with up to 25 hours of squash training during the week. The fly fishing group will walk each afternoon during the week to the on-campus lake located inside the Blair’s campus and practice casting technique and live fishing experience. Fishing equipment is available on loan, but campers are more than welcomed to bring their personal fishing gear from home.
