Registration Open for Women's Fly Tying Workshop

CONCORD, N.H. -- Women who love fly-fishing and want to learn a new winter hobby can now sign up for a new "Beyond BOW" offering - a fly-tying workshop with master fly tiers Jim and Kris Riccardi. The N.H. Becoming an Outdoors Woman (BOW) Program and the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's Let's Go Fishing Program are teaming up to offer the course, which will be held on Wednesday evenings, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., on January 27, February 3 and February 10, 2010, at N.H. Fish and Game Headquarters, 11 Hazen Drive in Concord, N.H. Participants must attend all three sessions.

A brochure and mail-in registration form for the fly tying course are available to download at www.nhbow.com. You can also call (603) 271-3212 or email aquatic-ed@wildlife.nh.gov to request an application. Registration is first-come, first-served. Sign up early; the course is limited to 15 participants. The $15 cost for the course includes all equipment, materials, instruction and refreshments.

While learning to tie several fly patterns, participants will be taught about the basic equipment and materials necessary to tie flies, common patterns and what they imitate. Instructors will also discuss insect anatomy and explain why a particular fly is used.

Course instructors Jim and Kris Riccardi are master fly tiers and veteran Let's Go Fishing fly fishing instructors. They have been involved in Let's Go Fishing and BOW programs for more than 10 years.

B.O.W. is co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (www.WildNH.com) and the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation (www.nhwf.org).
