Applications are now being accepted for the June 23-29, 2019 Academy.

 Up to 20 lucky boys and girls may attend the 2019 Academy at Hicks Lake in Lacey, WA.   The applicant must submit an essay, explaining why “they” would like to attend The Academy and a letter of recommendation is to be submitted by their school counselor or science teacher.  Both items may be emailed to nwycffa@comcast.net.  Enrollment fee is $300, however; there are sponsorships available.  So no applicant will be turned away because of funding. 

Again we are very fortunate to receive financial support from the fly fishing clubs, the TU chapters, individuals and corporate organizations.  The event is sponsored by the Washington Council of Trout Unlimited and supported by the Washington Council of Fly Fishers International, South Sound Fly Fishers, Puget Sound Fly Fishers and the Olympia TU Chapter. 

Applications can be obtained at www.nwycffa.com. We have a Facebook page with loads of pictures from past year’s Academy’s.  Just put in NW Youth and it will pop right up.  Send any questions to nwycffa@comcast.net  or call 253-278-0061.  Looking forward to another great year – Mike Clancy, Co-Director & Jim Brosio, Co-Director.
