2016 Academy: apply today!
We are so excited to announce that the application period for the 2016 Bristol Bay Guide Academy is OPEN!
This summer, we’ll be at Mission Lodge learning the basics of fly fishing, outdoor safety, providing a great customer experience, learning about river ecology, and a whole lot more. We have a great crew of instructors lined up, and can’t wait to meet everyone out in the Bay!
Though the Academy is of course a great job training opportunity and a whole lot of FUN, it is also a key piece of working toward a future based on clean rivers, salmon and salmon-based jobs that we seek for Bristol Bay.
Creating jobs and leadership opportunities for Bristol Bay youth helps the local economy, keeps tourism jobs in region, and of course creates lifelong stewards of Bristol Bay’s many rivers. We can’t imagine a better intersection of these goals than the Academy.
We hope you’ll apply or nominate a student (age 14-24) to apply for the 2016 Academy. As always, do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. Don’t forget to turn those applications in by March 15!
