Fish for Change uses fly fishing as our vehicle to build global citizens through experiential learning. Our Mission is to use fly-fishing as a platform to make the world a better place by uniting a diverse group of students in wild fisheries where they engage in a variety of initiatives that promote Connection, Education, Conservation, and Exploration.
"A week I thought I would spend out on a boat fishing turned into a week of simply living. Something I said on the last night was I finally felt like I just lived. I mean this, I now understand what life is supposed to feel like. Fish for Change pushed me to go out of my comfort zone and be vulnerable. Through doing this it allowed me to have the best week of my life. We did it all - we built life long relationships with the community, fished our hearts out, learned so much my brain hurts, and LIVED LIFE. When I sit back and really think about this trip i’m speechless, it’s hard to put in to words how amazing this experience was." - Olivia, 15, Colorado
Issue II Fish For change journal
Writing and Photography is a centric focus of our summer programs.
Issue II of Fish for Change Journal showcases our students' work and reflects on programs in Guanaja, Abaco, The Black Canyon, Costa Rica, and Campeche.
"Guanaja is home away from home. Mangrove Bight is a family to me, and I look forward to coming back year after year. From fishing the beach in the early morning to playing soccer in the canchita at night, it really is a different experience. Each day is filled with laughter, smiles, and pure joy. Jumping off the docks with fishing guides, cutting sugar cane with Killaway, and crab hunting with all the local kids. Guanaja is an experience, that if you are lucky enough to visit. You will enjoy it too. - Winslow, 16, Texas
