Women Fly Fishing

Classes and Camps for Women

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:

 

Co-ed Beginner Classes

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. They are a brief overview of what fly fishing is all about. These are only an hour long, are offered weekly throughout the summer, and are FREE!

 

For a more in-depth beginner's class, our co-ed Discover Fly Fishing class is a good option - offered frequently, lasts for 3 hours and costs $30.

 

You can follow either of these with the Orvis 201 class, $60, which gives you a taste of fishing on-stream.

 

For more information and to register for a co-ed option, see our Getting Started page HERE.

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!

"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."
