Volunteers giving a gift that lasts a lifetime

Fly fishing class opens new horizons for local youth

MAUPIN – What started as a senior class project has turned into a popular physical education curriculum. Back in 2008, South Wasco County senior Kris Belozer organized a fly fishing program to help local youth understand the rules and regulations of the sport, while fishing renown bodies of water across the Pacific Northwest. His goal is to establish a baseline where kids gain a love for an activity that will last a lifetime.
