Joey's Fly Fishing Partners with Kennon Products of Sheridan

Joey's Fly Fishing, a local volunteer-run non-profit organization that works with kids from around Sheridan and Buffalo, is growing their fly-rod building class with help from Kennon Products of Sheridan. Joey Puettman, founder of Joey's, talked about the partnership.

Joey's offers three different courses including the fly-rod building, fishing trips, fly-tying and 4-day camps. Pittman said that the five remaining camps are full for the summer, but anyone interested in rod-building this fall should contact Joey's or visit the website for more information.

Joey's Fly Fishing works with local youth, using fly fishing to promote self-advocacy and problem solving skills in order to help them avoid substance abuse, according to their website.

The partnership began after Kennon's Production and Customer Service Manager Rhonda Gould took a course from Joey's. Kennon is owned by Ron Kensey and makes a wide variety of products from aircraft covers to graffiti-proof signage. The fly-rod parts they donate to Joey's are made from recycled materials.
