Don't know how many are looking at Facebook, but I found this today:

Great way to have another generation of fly-fishing!

This was the first trout camp for the Tennessee Council of Trout Unlimited and I feel it was beyond our expectations. I am confident that there will be one on the calendar for next year. I had the opportunity to help on Sam's Creek on Friday, June 24th. I was impressed with the folks who worked with the youngsters and the Institute for their professionalism. Oh, yes, we caught some brookies and returned them so they will grow bigger for next year. ;)
Thanks for the kind words, Michael.

Good work.

Up in Maine our chapters have done this for many years with great success; and YES these kids do by and large continue fly fishing as adults and give back to the resource we all enjoy.

Corbo, that is encouraging to know the kids continue the "quiet sport."
