The Mayfly Project is a national nonprofit that uses fly fishing as a catalyst to mentor and support children in foster care. The Mission of The Mayfly Project is to support children in foster care through fly fishing and introduce them to their local water ecosystems, with a hope that connecting them to a rewarding hobby will provide an opportunity for foster children to have fun, build confidence, and develop a meaningful connection with the outdoors.

Our speaker, Kimberly Cordero serves as lead mentor of the Boise Mayfly Project. Kimberly has lived in Boise the majority of her life and enjoys the many opportunities to engage in outdoor activities with her husband, son, and two big dogs. She obtained her undergraduate degree in sociology from Black Hills State University and obtained her master’s degree in social work from Northwest Nazarene University. While living in Custer, SD she was introduced to fly fishing and has been hooked ever since!  For over two decades, Kimberly has worked alongside children and families involved with Child Welfare.

In 2016 she transitioned to private practice as a mental health therapist and enjoys coming alongside others on their journey of healing and exploration. When The Mayfly Project came across her radar she knew she had to be part of their team! Kimberly continues to look forward to giving back to youth in foster care and helping them develop life skills, self-care, and resiliency through The Mayfly Project. Kimberly is also a member of WFFI.

Members are invited to our monthly meeting featuring a brief member update, information on upcoming activities, a drawing prize giveaway,  followed by a presentation on a fly fishing topic by a noted speaker. Meetings are held at the Riverhouse in Star on the 3rd Wednesday of the month.
