Boy Scout Fly Fishing Merit Badge
There are currently no training sessions scheduled.
This merit badge is specifically targeted at teaching fly fishing. It is a hands-on, one-on-one, or one-on-several, instruction role.

RMF will be setting up a Fly Fishing Merit Badge Counselor program and will be contacting those who volunteered to consider this alternative. Merit Badge Counselors work with a couple Scouts at a time at mutually convenient times scheduled by the Counselor, and are not limited by large class logistics.
Merit Badge counseling isn’t intended to make a Scout ‘proficient’ as we most might normally think; instead, the objective is to achieve an introductory skill level sufficient for the Scout to continue fishing until he decides if it is an interest he chooses to pursue. Typically, this requires only one or two counseling sessions and several hours on a river and/or pond…plus the Scout’s own additional practice.
The BSA website shows the Fly Fishing Merit Badge requirements and some additional online instructional resources.
