2017 Video Edits

A lot of participants and trip leaders bring their GoPro cameras on our trips. But most of the time that video gets filed away on their computers. In 2017 we were lucky to have some passionate participants and trip leaders who recorded some great video. Then they spent hours of their free time this fall sorting through it all and editing it down into some beautiful short videos. Take a look below to see three videos that we have received so far. It just so happens they are all from Yellowstone. If you have put together a highlight reel from your LFFE trip please send it our way so we can add it to our collection.

Alex Deetjen is a three time LFFE participant. This is the trailer he produced for a video highlighting his 2017 Yellowstone Expedition. The movie features Alex and his tripmates from all over the country. Almost all of which have been on 2-3 trips together. This group will go down in LFFE history. I can’t wait for the full video." />

LFFE Guide Nathan Mackey put together this short edit highlighting an awesome backcountry trip into Yellowstone’s Slough Creek." />

You may have already seen this video from LFFE guide Nathan Mackey on the Orvis Blog, but I include it again because it really illustrates how LFFE trips are so much more than just a fishing trip." />

Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions was started in 2010 as a graduate thesis for my Master's Degree in Environmental Conservation Education at NYU. The operating premise was simple - by coupling amazing wilderness fly fishing camps for teens with environmental education and service learning we can help inspire future generations of fly fishing conservationists. We have been growing our unique list of trips and experiences ever since.

When it comes to choosing a summer program for your teen the options are endless. For the teen who loves to fish, be outside, and has a strong sense of adventure we have made the choice easy. We are the leader in teen fly fishing adventures and are dedicated to providing the best backcountry fly fishing experience with opportunities for teens to engage in leadership training, community service, and backcountry camping.
