Weatherby’s Novice School for Women is for the person that has never tried fly fishing or someone that has learned casting but has never really caught any fish. We start at the beginning, learning about rods, lines, reels, leaders, tippet and flies.

We will be fishing with nymphs, streamers, and dry flies for landlocked salmon and brook trout in Grand Lake Stream as well as streamers and poppers for smallmouth bass in the surrounding waters. So little time and so much to learn. This is just the beginning of a life-long pursuit.

Weatherby’s Intermediate School for Women will focus on early season nymph and streamer fishing techniques used to catch landlocked salmon. We will be sight nymphing for salmon, learning how to outfit your rod, select flies and present them to salmon lying in wait.

In addition will learn about early season wading safety and how to dress to stay warm in cold water. This is a fishing and learning experience that will allow participants to be comfortable and confident fishing on their own or with friends after the school.
