There will be a team leader giving a talk on conservation while the volunteers set up:

Volunteers meet at the Gazeebo at the Pond in Green Mountain Falls to --
- Assemble rods and put on flies
- Teach youth to cast a fly rod and land a trout safely
- Disassemble rods

There will be two classes of about 20 6th graders. They may or m ay not being flies (streamers) they have tied. Each volunteer takes a student to some place around the pond and teaches them to cast and land a trout.

All the equipment (rods/flies/leader-tippet/split shot, etc.) is provided by Pikes Peak Chapter of Trout Unlimited. Volunteers only need their stream side gear and a net. It is a pond and you do not need waders.
