Kaitlin Barnhart and Jess Westbrook are the founders of The Mayfly Project, an organization that uses fly fishing to help mentor and support children in foster care. The Mayfly Project introduces children in foster care to their local fisheries, with the hope that it will connect them to a rewarding hobby, ultimately providing them the opportunity to have fun, build confidence, and develop a meaningful connection with the outdoors. In this episode of Anchored we discuss the project, how it works and how you can help.
