Angler's Covey has plenty of opportunities for women to join the adventure of flyfishing. Check out these sites for information -- and watch for updates as we add classes and announce dates for 2013!
Fly fishing is a great sport for everyone to enjoy - both men AND women! But we do recognize that the majority of fly fishermen are men and sometimes women can have greater challenges in finding friends who share their passion. For that reason, we've created a local fly fishing club just for ladies: Pikes Peak Women Anglers, or PPWA for short. Whether you are new to the sport or have been fly fishing for years, come check out our group and join us on our fun fly fishing trips!
Check out the line-up of classes offered by women and for women!
Great blog: The Flyfishing Woman

"There are no exact numbers, but by and large, fly-fishing has long been regarded as a "male-dominated" activity. There's little doubt that a female angler on the banks of a trout stream a few years ago would raise an eyebrow.
An unscientific survey of Colorado's fly-fishing cognoscenti confirms that somewhere in the past decade, women have made a significant ingress.
"Fly-fishing is very restorative," said Erica Stock of Trout Unlimited. "It's not a race. It's not a competition. It's meant to relax you."
