Event Description: The Cinder Worm Program is on again. Register Now! Applications taken for both students & mentors Kettle Pond Visitor Center, Charlestown, Rhode Island For the past four years, Dave Pollack / Capt. Ray Stachelek and mentors from Connecticut/ Rhode Island Coastal Fly Fishers along with the Rhody Fly Rodders group have been facilitating this instructional program, with the aid of the U.S Fish & Wildlife Service and the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management. The first two sessions are devoted to tying cinderworm emergence patterns. One Saturday afternoon/evening is devoted to fishing them on Ninigret Pond. Many of you have already participated as students and/or instructors. We are doing it again in the spring of 2013. Fly tying will be on two weekday nights at the USF&W Kettle Pond Nature Center. Fishing will be on Saturday at Ninigret National Wildlife Refuge. We provide all necessary fly tying tools, materials, and fly rod outfits as needed. Fly Tying: Tuesday, April 30th and Monday May 6th from 6:30PM – 8:30PM Fishing: Saturday, May 11th from 4:00PM to dark Every year there is a waiting list for new students. The class enrollment is limited to 40 students. Looking for instructors, our student to teacher ratio ideally would be 3-1. Pre-registration is required.
