Women who have learned the basics of fly-fishing and are looking to build their skills have an exciting chance to learn more at a Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) intermediate fly-fishing weekend workshop on September 23-25, 2011, at The Sportsman’s Lodge in Stewartstown, N.H. Registration opens on Monday, July 25, 2011.

If you are a woman with some fly-fishing experience who wants to gain enough skills and practice to fly fish on your own, this workshop is for you. You’ll learn from expert instructors all about the finer points of casting — accuracy, timing, shooting the line; reading the water; picking a proper fly and knowing how to cast it; and what to do when you catch a fish (playing and releasing). Participants will have the opportunity to fish both still and moving water. Fishing instruction is provided by Fish and Game’s “Let’s Go Fishing” program.
