Big Brother Day - Final Mentor List

Call for final commitment to be a Big Brother / FORUM Mentor:

Things change over time so I thought I would ask for a final headcount and commitment of Flyfishing Forum mentors for the Big Brother Day, Father's Day June 16th (Sunday, half day). Please reply here if you are 100% for the outing.

We need at least 15 mentors with at least one extra rod from 7wt to 9wt. Mentors will be expected to be available on Cape Cod for the morning.

Rip Ryder has donated free fares for the little brothers! Kudos to our sponsor for the show of generosity to the kids.

Juro,
I'm in.

John,
I'll get the boxes from work next week. We can figure out how to get the boxes to you then.

Nick

Yea John. You know, I'm sure, from personal experience that you never give up that "mentor" role once you've taken it on.

Just a reminder - we are still a few spots shot of the goal of 15 mentors. Please speak up if you can commit to this event.

We are currently targeting 9am-3pm, with a dawn option for those mentors who are interested in getting the yah yahs out ahead of time.

9am - 10am:
For the first hour (or less) we will do casting, safety and other basics with the kids. We will choose the location based on the wind that day. If they don't get a great cast, don't worry. Most likely we will be doing some casting for them anyway and letting them strip the fly in. We should also think about showing the big brother.

10am - noon: part I fishing - outgoing tide to low slack, this makes it easy to cast off the edge of the flat into deep water

noon - 1: lunch picnic break - the kids' favorite part

1 - 3: part II fishing - incoming tide, might get some fish coming up over the edge

Miscellaneous notes:

Big brother is covering the Rip Ryder fare for the big bro's, Rip Ryder is covering the fare for the little brothers! Alright Rip Ryder!

Expect to help the big brother learn about it too - if either one gets the bug, most likely they will have gained a new fun activity to share with each other. If the big brother casts OK, they could do the cast and strip pair-up between themselves.

We should bring little dip nets and buckets to keep them entertained in the event there are no fish around. A small shovel would be good, we could talk about the clams. It's about having fun not getting a keeper - but we might end up doing BOTH.

The objective is not for us to fish, but to help the little brother experience fishing. If a blitz erupts in front of you and he can't reach, by all means cast for him. If there is a moment where we can hook a fish to let them reel it in, that works too.

We'll keep things at a slow and comfortable pace. It's all about fun, not fish. Kids care much less about fish than we do. If the opportunity arises, great! Otherwise, no worries - it's a great day at the beach.

Safety is the most important thing, fun is second. Chime in! We have a lot to discuss.
