Beyond B.O.W. - Intermediate Fly Fishing Workshop for Women
CONCORD, N.H. - Women who have tackled the basics of fly-fishing and are looking to move towards independence as a fly-angler can get the help they need - and have a great time in the company of other women anglers -- at an intermediate fly-fishing weekend offered September 28 - 30, 2007, at Purity Spring Resort in Madison, N.H. Registration opens July 2. The course is co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's "Let's Go Fishing" Program and Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (B.O.W.), a program co-sponsored by Fish and Game and the N.H. Wildlife Federation.
This event is for women with some fly-fishing experience who want to become more confident fly-fishing on their own. The weekend will cover the finer points of casting - accuracy, timing, shooting the line; reading the water and then picking a proper fly and knowing how to cast it; and what to do when you catch a fish - playing and releasing. Participants will have the opportunity to fish both still and moving water.
The weekend costs $275, which includes meals, lodging, materials and instruction. Participants must be at least 18 years old. A registration form and course descriptions will be available at www.nhbow.com after registration opens on July 2, or call (603) 271-3212 to request an application by mail. Class space is limited, and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to sign up early.
Over the past ten years, N.H. Fish and Game's "Let's Go Fishing" program has taught thousands of children and adults to be safe, ethical and successful anglers. The program is federally funded through the Sport Fish Restoration Program. To find out more about the Let's Go Fishing Program, click here.
