Brighton students try their hand at fly fishing

BRIGHTON — Overland Trail Middle School students were able to cast their hand at fly fishing at the Recreation Center ponds on Sept. 11. Over the course of the last three weeks, students in Sheila Love’s physical education class have been learning how to fly fish.

This is the first year the fly fishing curriculum is being taught at the school. Love heard about the fly fishing program while at a PE conference and was able to receive a grant from the National Fishing in Schools Program and from Parks and Wildlife to implement the program.
