Fly-Fishing Merit Badge

For the past few weeks, some of the scouts have been working on the Fly-Fishing Merit Badge with John Stein. One of the requirements of the merit badge is to make your own lure. Mr. Stein contacted the Bear’s Den, a local fly-fishing shop in Taunton, Massachusetts, and they contacted local fishermen who volunteered to teach the scouts the art of lure making.



Each scout made 3 or 4 lures under the guidance of talented fishermen. The results were great as everyone learned quickly.

Big thanks to the fishermen, the Bear’s Den, and Mr. Stein, who were a great help.
