Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions is an adventure education company, specializing in wilderness fly fishing trips for adolescents. We are dedicated to leading memorable, exciting, educational, and most importantly, fun wilderness fly fishing adventures for middle and high school students. Our flagship programs are our 5-20 day long Teen Adventures and Expeditions. We also offer custom wilderness adventures for families, schools, or small groups.
Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions was founded by Will Lillard while he was earning his M.A. in Environmental Conservation Education at NYU. As a fly fisherman and fly fishing guide, Will admired the dedication to conservation and stewardship he noticed among fly fishermen and women. He combined his experiences leading teen adventure education trips, working at a semester school, and as a guide on the Gunnison River with the benefits of service learning, to create LFFE. Our mission is to inspire future generations of fly fishing conservationists.
