Missoula’s 17th Annual Womens’ Fly Fishing Clinic

June 24th from 10am to 3pm ~ Frenchtown Pond        Cost:  $150.00

This year’s Womens’ Clinic is all-encompassing and good for fly fishers who are just getting started or have been at it a while. Anglers will acquire the ability to assess and adjust their own casts and practice techniques for accuracy, distance and presentation. Other learning sessions will include practicing effective fishing techniques on water, tying essential knots and a deeper understanding of where fish live, what they eat and why.

Another key component of the clinic is the teaching about differences in equipment, dispelling myths and revealing how to find the best values available. Combine all that with practice playing, landing and releasing fish and this clinic puts every angler in a great position to experience a lifelong journey of enjoyable days on the water.

This year’s clinic benefits kids who want to be curious in nature and attend Montana Natural History Center’s Discovery Summer Camps. MNHC awarded 30 camp scholarships last season and looks forward to offering even more in 2017.

You may enter to win a Sage Grace Fly Rod Outfit and other fishy things.

Raffle tickets are available at the clinic.

Gear, morning coffee, catered lunch and t-shirt provided.

The funds raised in this event directly benefit the recipients of Montana Natural History Center’s youth camp scholarships.
