Welcome to the PPWA. We're an informal group for women fly fishers in the southern Colorado region.
Fly fishing has traditionally been a very male-dominated sport, but we know that there are many women who enjoy fly fishing and would love the opportunity to meet other women with the same interest. Fly fishing should always be fun (if not frustrating at times...) After all, fish happen to live in some of the most beautiful places, many of which we can easily access here in southern Colorado.
We want to provide a forum to encourage and support women who fly fish – as well as a social network to meet and fish with other women anglers. Toward this end, we host monthly fishing outings during the spring and summer months, as well as social and educational events year-round. While our mission is not to teach fly fishing, we welcome all women fly fishers of all abilities to join us.
Thank you so much for telling me about this group. This is exactly what I've been
looking for. I had a great time. Everyone was so friendly and inclusive. I'm looking forward to all the adventures we will have this year. - S.
As part of our community, there are a few rules:
1. Membership in the PPWA is for women only (probably obvious, but you never know).
2. Membership in the PPWA is free! While some of our trips (such as a guided Arkansas River float trip) may have a cost, membership and our gatherings is free.
3. The foundation for our group is built on trust and respect. Please report any concerns immediately to email@example.com
4. An organization like this should evolve to meet the needs of its membership. Feedback is encouraged so that we can strive to meet the needs of our group!
