Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions

Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions is an adventure education company specializing in wilderness fly fishing camps for adolescents. We are dedicated to leading memorable, exciting, educational, and most importantly, fun fly fishing camps for middle and high school students in some of the best fly fishing destinations in the world. Our flagship Teen Adventures/Expeditions are a unique combination of fly fishing, adventure education, and service learning with the goal of educating future generations of fly fishing conservationists. In addition, our parent-child trips and custom adventures for families, groups, or schools take the work out of planning the perfect wilderness experience for groups big and small. 

In the end we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.

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.
