The Castaways is a fishing club dedicated to promoting not only fly fishing, but also conservation and environmental enhancement.
The club features fish-outs, which bring members together to fish and learn from each other. As well, there are opportunities for members to learn fly tying and casting.
Aimee Cox is one of the club’s fly casting instructors. The club is open to all, men and women, accomplished fly fishers or novices.
