Ladies who Cast: Level 1 An Introduction to Fly Fishing
Join us for Mountain Girl’s Level 1 fly-fishing clinic designed to give you the knowledge and skills needed for a day on the river! This weekend retreat has it all - lodging, food, and fishing in beautiful Thermopolis Wyoming - home of the world's largest mineral hot spring.
Thermopolis’s own Elisa Daniels will cover Gear 101 and how to find what you need at your local fly shop, along with lots of hands-on instruction and a casting workshop. We’ll put your skills to use with a half-day of coached fly fishing on the Big Horn River. Don’t have the gear? Don’t worry we have you covered! All you need is a Wyoming fishing license and conservation stamp (we will help you with this).
Here's a list of what we have planned:
Mountain Girl Talk (all things related to fishing, being a woman in the outdoors, and what to expect this weekend).
All the technical fly fishing stuff - knots, gear, flies, fly boxes and rods.
Casting instruction and practice. We will do this at the lodge before we go to the river.
Visit a fly shop and learn how to read the board, where to find stuff
How to read the water, entomology and fish handling before fishing
FISHING (of course) on the Big Horn River
Evenings around a fire pit with good snacks (s'mores anyone?), friends, and stories
Optional Activities include:
Hot Springs soak (Saturday night or Sunday before you go home)
Dinner in Thermopolis
Visit the Hot Springs State Park

S'mores & Campfire at the lodge - Fish stories included
