Women's Intermediate Fly Fishing Workshop:
Sign Up Now for September Beyond Becoming an Outdoors-Woman Workshop
CONCORD, N.H. -- Back by popular demand! The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's "Let's Go Fishing" and Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) programs are once again teaming up with the N.H. Wildlife Federation to host the second annual intermediate fly-fishing weekend this fall. Any woman who has tackled the basics of fly-fishing and is looking to improve her skills and get in some practice should register. The weekend will be September 26 - 28, 2008, at Purity Spring Resort in Madison, N.H.
This event is for women with some fly-fishing experience. The goal of this course is to help attendees move towards independence as fly-anglers. Some of the topics that will be covered through out the weekend are: the finer points of casting - accuracy, timing, shooting the line; reading the water; 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 are now available at www.nhbow.com; 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, the Fish and Game Department'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.
Becoming an Outdoors-Woman programs are a joint effort between the N.H. Wildlife Federation and the N.H. Fish and Game Department.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is the guardian of the state's fish, wildlife and marine resources and their habitats.
