Help Youth Team USA
- By: Fly Rod and Reel
If funnyman Stephen Colbert can mobiliize funding for the Olympic speed-skating team, we fly-fishers can help underwrite the Youth Fly Fishing Team U.S.A.
The US Youth Fly Fishing Team is a non-profit 501(c3)organization that relies entirely on the generosity of individuals, family, friends, groups, organizations and corporations. It costs several thousand dollars per angler to send the team to a World Championship.
