Women’s Fly Fishing 201 – Louisville, KY

Sign Up The next step after completing the Fly Fishing 101 class is to get out on the water for a 201 class. In this local outing, we will review casting and rigging, and show you more tricks for getting the fly where you want it and bringing it to life in the water. 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!

Pikes Peak Women Angler’s San Juan Trip – Navajo…

Sign Up San Juan River Trip Wednesday – Saturday, May 3-6 Navajo Dam, New Mexico Leave Wednesday night; Return Saturday (or stay the weekend!) The San Juan River is a favorite of many anglers. The trout are generally more plentiful and larger than many other locations and you can float or wade. That doesn’t mean the fishing is easy, however! You will need to bring all of your gear (waders, flies, rod/reel, etc.) and you will choose where to fish for the weekend. A local Durango guide service, such as Fisheads, is a great option to get further information as to fly selection and suggestions of where to fish. You are on your own for lodging, but we recommend reserving a spot at Fishheads San Juan River Lodge – but it’s filling up fast! Mark your calendar and join us for this adventure! This event is hosted by Pikes Peak Women Anglers through Angler’s Covey in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
