The US Youth Fly Fishing Team is a group of carefully selected young anglers between the ages of 14-18 from across the USA. These anglers will represent the USA in National and International fly fishing events. The team, coached by members of the Team USA adult team and other leading fly fishing experts, placed 4th last year in the World Youth Fly Fishing Championships held in Slovakia.
The USYFFT holds clinics nationwide for young anglers to advance their skills and learn from some of the best instructors. Young anglers must attend a clinic to be eligible to compete for a place on the team. There are four clinics nationwide in 2011. They will be in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Colorado and Utah. A National Championship will be held in Central Pennsylvania on June 21-23 to select the 2012 team. Team members must qualify each year to earn their position on the team.
