On Monday the Shasta Trinity Fly-Fishers President Jim Jensen and City of Redding Mayor Kristen Schreder will lead the opening ceremony with a ribbon-cutting and tour of the new facilities. the new facility is set to bring in local community members and travelers to the area to give them a space to learn and practice fly fishing. Clubhouse Chairperson Dick Recchia said today “we hope to offer for the whole community now to learn these things to learn about fly fishing people that are interested there is a center to come to.” It is located on the Clover Creek Reserve in Redding giving them a huge space to hold events on and practice their craft. The building was made possible by a partnership with the city as well as several generous donors. In total, the project took more than 3 years and $300,000 to complete.
