Fly Fishing Clinic Planned to Hook Idaho Women Anglers
Women interested in the sport of fly-fishing are encouraged to sign up for a clinic designed to introduce the beginner angler to casting techniques, equipment use, knot tying, fly selection, and a personalized fishing experience on a scenic North Idaho river.
The clinic will include two presentations, from 6 to 9 p.m. September 10 and 17, in Lewiston, then an overnight campout and two days of fishing on September 20 and 21.
Sponsored by Kelly Creek Fly Casters and Idaho Fish and Game, the goal is to introduce women to fly fishing by providing them basic information and hands-on experiences. More importantly, the clinic will provide the foundation for women to become outdoor leaders and to develop a network of women with similar interests.
The registration cost is $60 for adults and $20 for young women 12 to 17 years old, which includes a Saturday evening Dutch oven dinner. Fly rods and reels will be provided to those who do not own equipment, but students must bring all other camping gear, meals and waders.
For more information or to register, contact Zack Funkhouser 208-816-8314, or Jill Green 208-798-0215, in the evening. Registration forms are available at the Idaho Fish and Game Office, 3316 16th Street, Lewiston, ID 83501. Space is limited and registration will be first-come-first serve.
A participating parent or guardian must accompany young women who register.
