Fishing and Fly Fishing Merit Badge Skill Center




Fishing /Fly Fishing
Merit Badge Skill Center
at Swift Base at S bar F Scout Ranch
Sunday, October 26, 2014

A fun one-day class that will help you complete requirements for one or both merit badges. You bring your gear, we provide the teachers and together we will work on the merit badges. Gear will also be available if you do not have your own.
Classes will be taught by National Certified Angler Instructors including the authors of both Fishing and Fly Fishing merit badge books. The merit badge will be taught in a series of rotating sessions on different topics. You will be signed off for the requirements that you complete.
Requirements included catching, cleaning and cooking a fish. We cannot guarantee you will catch a fish on this day, but we will give you the opportunity.
The cost for the day is $25. This fee includes lunch, tying two flies for fly fishing, program materials and a patch.
Space will be limited to 100 participants.

Therefore it is not possible to earn both badges on this date. However, Scouts can earn both the Fishing and Fly Fishing merit badges.* offers a workbook for the Fishing Merit Badge and Fly Fishing Merit Badge. Scouts still need to read the complete merit badge pamphlets which can be found at the council's Scout Shops or at
