I met some of my best friends on the Maine trip over a year ago; since then, we've done the Yellowstone Advanced Expedition together and still keep in touch on a regular basis. I would recommend these trips to fly fisherman or anyone interested in beginning to fly fish. Every trip is excellently run and I learned an incredible amount from the people who run them. I made great friends and memories I will never forget!

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.
