Things to know
Between 3:00pm-5:30pm on Thursday.
WHAT IS THE PRICE?
Cost is $335 ($299 for 65 and older)
STAY AN EXTRA NIGHT
Once again, we are offering you an opportunity to stay an extra night. If you'd like more time to fish or rest, for $35, you can stay in your cabin on Sunday night. There will be food provided, but it will be do-it-yourself sandwiches. We will need you out of your cabin by 10am on Monday morning.
WHEN ARE WE DONE?
We'll be done on Sunday after our mid-morning meeting. Sunday lunch will be leftovers from our other meals and you will be free to take any food leftover with you when you leave. We will shut down the buildings/ camp by 3pm, but of course you can keep fishing as long as you want after you move out of your cabin, you will just not have access to the Clydehurst facilities. You have an option to stay Sunday night.
WILL I HAVE ROOMMATES?
There is a good chance you will have roommates unless you bring a camper or tent. All the cabins at Clydehurst are one room and they all have full bathrooms. On your registration form, you were able to request cabin mates and we will make sure you get to be with your buddies. We will do our best to accommodate you and make sure you have a suitable bed for your needs. Each cabin will have one queen bed and then bunk beds. We'll put the young guys with good backs on the bottom bunks and even younger guys with even better backs on the top bunks. The older guys get dibs on the queen bed if they so choose. Let's be in touch about your needs. We are at a rustic camp, but we want you to be able to sleep comfortably. With the cool air, bright stars, and the sound of the rushing river always audible, it's pretty hard to not sleep like a baby up here, but still, we want you to have the most comfortable bed possible.
SHOULD I BRING FISHING GEAR?
We encourage you to bring your own fishing gear if you can, but we do have a limited number of rods and will provide you with a few flies. There are more flies for purchase. Please let us know if you will need gear so we can be sure to have enough. We will make sure you can get out on the water and have some fun.
Things to Bring
- Dogs are not allowed on the grounds
- Bible and study supplies (pens, notebooks)
- Sleeping Bags and/or Queen Sized bedding (Twin for bunk beds)

Outside of the great fishing, here's What you can expect!
GREAT BIBLE TEACHING!
This is a Christ-centered camp and we are going to celebrate Jesus and learn more about Him throughout the day. Our time together in chapel will be after breakfast so that you don't miss out on fishing through dusk.
You will have the option of having a continental style breakfast that will be sitting out for you no matter how early you want to get up and get on the river. For everyone else, we will have a hot breakfast prepared that we will eat together each morning. You can also sign up for a sack lunch if you choose to be out all day. If you choose to be here for lunch, we will have an amazing lunch together. This is always one of our top priorities at Clydehurst and it will be again at the Fly Fishing camp. We are going to have incredible man food, I guarantee that. (You know, steak and stuff)
As you know, we will have Gary Borger as our featured instructor. Look him up online and see all the cool things that he's done. He's one of the best in the world! We will have other instructors as well. Each day, we will have classes/ seminars you can take. We will work very hard to make sure you can make it to everything you want to. You can pick the classes that will help you learn about what you'd like to work on. We will have classes on specific styles of fly fishing, fly tying, casting, rod building, reading the water, insects, and more.
TONS OF GIVEAWAYS!
Our sponsors are once again hooking us up with a bunch of great giveaways. Everyone will get some great stuff.
