Kids Fly Fishing at Black Oak

Kids Fishing was a great time !

September 18th Jim Holland of Shannon's Fly and Tackle along with Len Ruggia, senior guide took on the kids of Black Oak in a great afternoon of fly fishing instruction, fly tying and some fun fishing in the pond behind the 4th tee.  Particularly stunning was our findings of just how many fish are in the ponds !  THOUSANDS of bait fish ( we stocked 5,000 to start) Lots of sunfish and plenty of bass.  It seems all are breeding as there were lots of new little ones.  The kids were great and we'll do it again soon.
