September Outdoors Skill Sampler at York River State Park

Have you ever wanted to cast a fly right in front of a fish and entice it to bite?  How about taking aim at a still or moving target with a bow and arrow?There are so many ways to enjoy the outdoors, but not many opportunities to learn the skills to enhance the enjoyment. The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, the Amber Nease Outdoor Education Foundation, and York River State Park will host an event where anyone 7 years old and up can get the "know-how" they have always wanted.
