Project 1: CRAFF Fly Fishing Education

The CRAFF Fly Fishing Education project has the goal of inspiring the next generation of fly fishers and conservationists.

Through our in-the-field interactions, CRAFF members teach young and old alike the ins-and-outs of our sport.  We share our acquired knowledge about Costa Rica's more than 50 fish species, and we provide instruction of how to fly cast, what types of flies are used and where someone might pursue these fish.

In addition we reinforce the importance of fishing licenses and defending nature against illegal fishing practices as well as against pollution.  We make important connections between our sport, responsible angling and healthy ecosystems.

CRAFF members enjoy engaging with young people to help them build their self-esteem by learning the skills necessary to be a fly fisher.  We also help them increase their environmental awareness and encourage them to become stewards of our natural world.

As part of this project, CRAFF is building a Fly Casting Instruction pond near San Jose where we will receive groups of kids for this type of interaction.

Project 2: CRAFF Conservation

While conservation laws exist in Costa Rica, a lack of enforcement has compromised both species and habitat.  CRAFF's Conservation Project seeks to contribute to species and habitat conservation with well-directed education and community involvement initiatives.

We have planned and will soon implement a number of river signage programs in critical geographic areas to protect species like the Guapote Lagunero and the Bobo fish.  The plan calls for installing and maintaining signage that promotes Catch-and-Release fishing and deters illegal practices.  Here, we also will promote the purchase of fishing licenses as a way to promote conservation. CRAFF also supports smaller initiatives throughout the country on a case-by-case basis.
