Fly Fishing Programs for Women 2008


Summer is here and The Women’s Wilderness Institute has spaces available in several of our upcoming Fly Fishing programs.

These trips are the perfect opportunity for women in your community to fish with other fisherwomen from around the country. It’s also a great chance for wives and daughters to learn the sport with the support and camaraderie of other women.

Appropriate for beginners and fisherwomen with prior experience, these courses cover basic fly fishing technique, language and ethics.

Course Descriptions:

Intro to Fly Fishing:

Join the increasing population of fisherwomen by learning the basics of this creative and peaceful sport. During this day-long clinic, you’ll cover the key components of catch and release fishing, including rod and reel set-up, casting, tying knots and avoiding line snags. Includes fly fishing gear.

Date: June 21 or July 13 [1 day]

Location: Boulder area

Tuition:  $100 includes all gear
Backcountry Fly Fishing:

Cast and relax in the high-alpine lake terrain of Wyoming’s Snowy Range. After a short backpack in, you’ll establish a basecamp and visit several trout-filled backcountry lakes. You’ll learn all the basics of the equipment, casting, knots, wading and fishing from the shore, plus some advanced skills like selecting flies and different kinds of casting. The hike in is relatively gentle which also makes this course a good introduction to backpacking. No experience necessary. Includes fly fishing gear.
