Becoming and Outdoor Woman: Fly Fishing Weekend
May 3, 2019 - May 5, 2019$125
Whether you want to gain new skills or improve current techniques, this workshop presents a thorough review of the history and ethics of fly-fishing as well as the angler’s important role in wildlife conservation. In the stream ecology session, discover tiny aquatic species that support a much larger food web. Explore a mountain stream and search for aquatic organisms using nets and kick seines to help understand what types of flies work best on the water. Then learn to tie flies that mimic the natural fish food you find in the river. In Basic Equipment session, get the scoop on proper waders, wading shoes, vests and other items that make fishing fun. Finally, learn knot-tying, fly-casting and presentation. Our experienced instructors emphasize the importance of basic casting techniques and offer one-on-one instruction to help participants practice their moves. Sunday morning you’ll get to practice and enhance all your new found skills with guided fishing on the North Fork Mills River.
