Kayla: I'm a new guide for Cast Hope, and I couldn't be any happier to be apart of such an incredible organization! As a young fly angler and guide, there is nothing greater than being able to take young kids out for a fun day on the water, and be able to connect and share your passion of fly fishing with them. I absolutely love Cast Hope because it gives youth opportunities that they most likely wouldn't have in their hometowns.
This non-profit organization equips all kids and guides with proper gear for fly fishing outings such as fly rods, reels, fly lines, flies, apparel, and so much more! For Free!
