Overview

This program is for women interested in learning the art of fly fishing. Programming will begin after dinner Friday evening with a workshop on fly rods, reels, line, flies, and basic skills needed to become a proficient angler. On Saturday morning after breakfast participants will be given hands on lessons aimed at handling a fly rod, tying proper knots, practicing casting techniques and what to do when you get a bite. After lunch participants will be split into groups with half heading to the river and the other half headed to First Little Lyford Pond. Here individuals will receive on the water instruction on casting technique and reading trout waters. This will give the angler a better understanding of fish habits and where to find them. Halfway through the day the groups will switch fishing waters so that they have equal time learning on the river and on the pond. Throughout the weekend participants will be given individual attention with guides around all day to give instruction, help understand flies, fly selection, and help the anglers correct their casting technique. Saturday evening after dinner there will be an evening program on native and wild brook trout and what the AMC is doing to preserve their fragile habitat. All participants will need to purchase at least a two day Maine fishing license and bring a fishing rod, reel, line, leader, and an assortment of flies. Fly Rods can be rented in advance for a fee of $25 for the program. We do not have waders for rent but they may be rented at Northwoods Outfitters in Greenville prior to arrival.
