The Ocean Reef Kids Day Camp is held at the Ocean Reef Club on Key Largo, at the top of the Florida Kays. It’s a gerat program for kids ages 12-16, teaching them to cast, tie knots and flies, and how to handle and release fish. But best of all, it gets these youngsters on the water! Here are a few photos from this year’s Camp.

Ben Walton, age 15, got into a Keys bonefish.

Ben also caught a tarpon in the mangroves: two-thirds of a Grand Slam!

Nathan Walton, age 12, landed a cool mangrove snapper.

    1. You are absolutely right, Phlatsphisher, and I have removed that image from the post. I’ll plan a future post on proper fish handing. Thanks.

  1. Great photos. I also had a mangrove snapper at my first fly fishing trip. I wasn’t 12 though, I was about 18 or 19.
