This summer I and other women fly fishing guides will be teaching Women Only Fly Fishing Classes out of Silver Creek Outfitters, in Ketchum Idaho. You couldn’t ask for a more beautiful place to learn how to fish. You can register for the classes with Silver Creek Outfitters.
Intro to Fly Fishing – $150
Have you wanted to get into fly fishing, just needing a little help? In this class we will take you out on the water and teach you all the basics to get you fishing. You’ll learn how to select your fly, tie it on, where to fish, how to cast your fly to the fish, and land a fish. If you’re looking for a fun learning experience join in with other women and experience fly fishing. And, if after today you still want more – sign up for Intermediate Fly Fishing for Women.
Intermediate Fly Fishing – $150
Are you ready to take your fly fishing skills to the next level? In the morning we will meet classroom style and discuss bug identification, reading moving water, rigging for dry flies and nymphs, and dead drifting techniques. We will end the morning with a “hands-on” casting session to learn presentation casts from the reach cast to the parachute to the wiggle cast. In the afternoon, we’ll move to the Wood River and put your new knowledge to work. We will observe the bugs and make our fly choice and rigging technique. From there we will look at various “water structures” and master line mending for the perfect drift and casts to get to those difficult to reach prime fish locations.
