Cenla NHF Day this Saturday

National Hunting and Fishing Day is a national event celebrated on the fourth Saturday in September. It was established by Congress in 1972 to celebrate the conservation contributions of our nation's hunters and anglers.  For over 30 years, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has celebrated NHFD at four venues across the state, including their Woodworth location.

Kisatchie Fly Fishers is proud to once again be part of the Cenla NHFD activities.  We will doing fly tying demos, hands-on tying, hands-on fly casting, hands-on knot tying, and talking about fly fishing, including opportunities in the Cenla area, on the coast, and beyond.
