How to Tie Flies.
We have teamed up with Paul Roy to offer a beginners fly tying course. The course will run from February 5th through March 5th meeting on five Tuesday evenings at either the YCFGA lodge or President’s club. The course will provide you with basic fly tying skills, a tying vise and tools that will be yours to keep, and enough fly tying material for the duration of the course. The cost is $85.00 per person and is open to members & nonmembers. Space is limited. Registration and payment is required by December 25th. For class registration or more information contact Marc Gilbert at 207-423-5177 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Our pond is a state stocked pond which is primarily used for kid’s fishing. Adults with fishing licenses (16 and older) are allowed to fish during the season but tackle only. No bait, including worms are allowed.
No adult ice fishing is allowed but kids are allowed two traps maximum.
For all fishing rules, please consult Maine’s fishing laws. Maine’s laws supersede any interpretation by York County Fish and Game.
The public is not only welcome but encouraged to make use of the pond. Parking is permitted near the access gate and the lower parking lot.
Please remember to stay safe while using the pond and to also be courteous to others using our grounds. Also, please leave as little “footprint” as possible by carrying out whatever you take in, especially tackle and litter.
Our little pond is a natural beauty. Please help us keep it that way!
