We get it! We understand that as women, you wear many hats and have various responsibilities that compete for your time. For many of you, carving out a little "me" time just wouldn't happen if it wasn't for that gift certificate you were given for your Birthday or that friend who keeps nagging you about taking a class with her!
That's why at Angler's Covey we want to do whatever we can to make it easier for you to discover, explore and progress in your fly fishing. We have many options to make learning how to fly fish work into your schedule:
If a co-ed learning environment works for you, you can get a taste of fly fishing by attending one of our Orvis 101 classes. These are only an hour long, are offered weekly throughout the summer, and are FREE! They are a brief overview of what fly fishing is all about. You can follow this with the Orvis 201 class, $60, which gives you a taste of fishing on-stream.
For more in-depth beginner's classes, our co-ed Discover Series is a good option. The Discover Fly Fishing and DIscover Fly Casting classes are both offered weekly throughout the summer, last for about 2 hours, and cost $30 each. These can be followed by the co-ed Discover Streamside class which puts you on the water for a half day and costs $90.
If you prefer to learn in an environment where your instructors and the other students are women, then our "For Women Only" options are for you!
Our "For Women Only" 101 Discover Fly Fishing Class is offered June, July and August for $30. This is a great chance to grab your friend, sign up, and take the plunge! The class is held at Angler's Covey in the evening for 3 hours, is taught by a woman fly fishing instructor, covers all the basics and includes a casting demonstration on our pond.

"Becky and Sharon presented a great women's class. The informative and interesting classroom sessions left me feeling ready to get on the river. Our day at 11 mile canyon was amazing! Sharon made the right call to change my fly and I landed a beautiful Rainbow. After this class, I feel confident and ready to head out on my own. And if the class wasn't great enough on it's own, the chicken salad Becky made for lunch (yes, catered lunch included!) was great."
Need to get “back in shape” for the season and brush up on a few skills? Then this class is for you! In this class, your instructors will help you remember how to tie your knots, how to rig your rod, and help you get your casting down. In addition we will talk about bugs and sample the water and give you tips for reading the water and finding fish. The purpose of the class is to help you feel confident and prepared for a great season of fishing, so even though the class is just three hours, we suggest you plan on staying and fishing in the canyon for the rest of the day and put those skills to use!
