Leader in Training
Make the transition from angler to guide
Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions ran our first fly fishing trips for teens in 2010. Between head guides, Will and Charlie, LFFE already had well over 10 years of guiding/trip leading experience. That experience and knowledge led to our immediate success on the fly fishing front, and even more importantly on the safety and educational fronts. Every summer since then we have not been able to plan enough trips to be able to keep up with the increasing demand. The greatest obstacle to running more trips has always been finding more trip directors equipped with the diverse skill sets that set our programs apart from the rest. Our Leader In Training (LIT) program allows us to work with alumni of our teen Expeditions who are entering their freshman and sophomore years of college to fine hone their fly fishing knowledge, and just as importantly, their leadership skills.
