Women’s Intermediate Fly Fishing Workshop – Sept 23-25, 2011
CONCORD, N.H. – Women who have learned the basics of fly-fishing and are looking to build their skills have an exciting chance to learn more about this time-honored sport at a Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) intermediate fly-fishing weekend workshop on September 23-25, 2011, at The Sportsman’s Lodge in Stewartstown, N.H.
If you are a woman with some fly-fishing experience who wants to gain enough skills and practice to fly fish on your own, this workshop is for you. You’ll learn from expert instructors all about 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.
This “Beyond BOW” specialty workshop costs $275, which includes instruction, meals and two nights lodging in the rustic and cozy Sportsman’s Lodge. To register and read an itinerary, visit www.nhbow.com, or call (603) 271-3212 to request an application by mail or email. Class space is limited, and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants must be at least 18 years old.
“What an absolutely fantastic weekend! I have told everyone about it. The knowledgeable staff (and volunteers) and personal instruction was more than I anticipated. I came home on such a natural high,” wrote a program participant.
The workshop is presented by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department and the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation. Instruction is provided by Fish and Game’s “Let’s Go Fishing” program.
