The Department of Natural Resources Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program today announced a few slots remain for a fly fishing workshop for women 18 and older, June 6-8, at the Pere Marquette River Lodge near Baldwin.

Activities begin with a meet-the-guides party Friday night. Saturday morning instruction includes in-depth information on equipment, aquatic habitat, “match the hatch” and fly casting. Plenty of time also will be allowed for actual fishing on the river. Saturday night activities include fly-tying instruction.

“The guides at the Orvis-endorsed Pere Marquette River Lodge are some of the finest in the business,” said Lynn Marla, DNR BOW coordinator. “This is one workshop you will not want to miss.”

The $360 registration fee includes first-class accommodations, all meals and instruction. All fishing equipment and waders will be provided, but women are encouraged to bring their own equipment if they have it. The registration form is available online at www.michigan.gov/bow.
