Women’s Fly Fishing 201 – Littleton, CO

Sign Up The next step after completing the Fly Fishing 101 class is to get out on the water for a 201 class.

For many students, this is the first fish they will catch on the fly! We will provide rods and terminal tackle, although we recommend you bring your own to become more comfortable fishing your personal gear! We also recommend bringing your own tippet, forceps and nippers (all included in our fully-loaded lanyard and sling pack!) so you can tie your own knots and release your own fish! We will provide plenty of drinks and a light lunch afterwards. All gear is provided. Wear weather appropriate clothing (rain or sun gear), comfortable shoes that can get muddy, a hat and sunglasses. We recommend students wear polarized sunglasses – they’re better for your eyes, and will cut the glare off the water to allow you to see the fish!
