About this Project
|Welcome to our web site! This site will
help students and teachers learn more about our landscape, our environment, our
fish and including the craft of fly fishing with children. In this site, we
have limited our scope to lakes in the central and southern British Columbia,
and northern Washington State. As funding becomes available, we would like to
expand our coverage to include the area's rivers and streams. In the future,
this site may also deal with northern British Columbia - lakes and streams that
drain into the Arctic Ocean.Thirteen modules have been designed for this site,
however only four are delivered here.
This project is a local Prince George initiative, lead by Erich Franz, school teacher, avid fly fisherman and project co-ordinator. His vision has been implemented by Karen Heathman of Indigo Ink Graphic Design, web site researcher, writer, and designer.
This site is meant to help children in grades 5 to 7 learn more about their environment. It has been designed as a web-based tool so that it is accessible to a wide array of children. This project is designed to fit within the BC School Curriculum and touches on a broad number of skills identified in the curriculum outline.

The information in this web site is not meant to be a complete study of the topic. The advice on flies and fishing is not designed to be the best available methodology, rather it is designed to offer children of all experience levels the ability to succeed.
