Rolling V Bus Corp. donates fly fishing equipment to local school district

SOUTH FALLSBURG, NY — Rolling V Bus Corp., a passenger transportation company based in the Catskills region, recently donated fly-fishing equipment to the Livingston Manor School District to help teach children about this Sullivan County pastime.
“Fly fishing remains a great part of the history of recreation in Sullivan County and particularly in Livingston Manor and Roscoe. We want to make sure it becomes an important part of our future,” said Rolling V President Phil Vallone.

The donation will go toward the school district’s outdoor sports program called RISE (Rigorous Intervention Supports Excellence). The donation has helped purchase six fly-rods with reels, storage bags and lines; six pairs of waders, leaders, a tippet and basic large flies without hooks. Students in the middle school will have the opportunity to fly fish in groups with supervision from local fly-fishing experts.
