Fly Fishing Film Highlights Kayla Lockhart, Mayfly Project

A new fly fishing film from Redington shares the story of Kayla Lockhart, an angler and mentor from the Mayfly Project.

The Mayfly Project is a nonprofit serving foster youth through teaching fly fishing. And Kayla Lockhart is well-positioned to serve these kids. She learned how to fly fish at age 24. Through that gift, she decided to give back.

The accomplished angler shares her story of a difficult childhood as well as how it positions her to be of service to kids in similar situations. You can watch the short film above. Additionally, learn how you can contribute to The Mayfly Project here.
