Women in Waders

Bay City State Park

This class is for the beginner, but will provide new information and skills for women anglers at all levels. A full day of instruction on the basic skills needed for fly fishing, taught by avid anglers from the William B. Mershon Chapter of Trout Unlimited, the class will take the novice fly fisher through basic skill-building activities such as knot tying, setting up equipment, angler etiquette, casting, fly tying and access points for trout fishing in the Great Lakes Bay area. 

Cost is $20 and includes small group, hands-on instruction by enthusiastic anglers as well as fly-tying materials, a take-home fly, loaner fly-fishing equipment, a souvenir T-shirt and a box lunch. Participants who have never belonged to Trout Unlimited also will receive a free one-year Trout Unlimited membership (a $35 value).
