Upcoming events:


     Beginning December, 2012 and continuing through and until the rivers thaw in early 2012, Float Fishing Connection will sponsor, with the assistance and cooperation of few select volunteers and donations from across the globe (yes, the globe!), a several month long steelhead seminar at Coaches' Corner Home in Painesville, Ohio.


    Preliminary details, that are still evolving, include mentoring 4-6 adolescent boys in the Painesville Harvey High School on steelhead angling.

Our program will consist of:

  • The life cycle of the Manistee strain of stocked steelhead trout

  • Knot tying

  • Fly tying for steelhead

  • Building our own steelhead rods (2 float rods, 2 switch & 2 fly rods)

  • Trips to the water come spring to tangle with the silver beasts

     We've been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from our steelhead community, fly tying forum and rod building forums.  Consequently, we are still assembling the list outlining the supplies and individual contributions.



     We would like, at this time to thank the following contributors that have played a huge monetary and materials support role toward making this event a success (the list is just beginning as more donations are on their way):

Bill & Karry Batson, Batson Enterprises, Sequim, Washington

D. Keister, New Oxford, Pennsylvania (

James Eu, Australia (

J. McCoy, Huntington, West Virginia (

K. Dietrich, Kenner, Louisiana (

D. Hilton, Grand Rapids, Michigan (

Kevin Proctor, Colorado (

     If you'd like to be part of the change in these young men's lives and are grateful for what trout fishing has meant or currently means to you and your life...please consider joining our team of mentors as we share the knowledge of fishing, respect for nature and conservation.
