Interested women aged 16 and up are invited to join instructors from the Dan River Basin Association and Trout Unlimited for a comprehensive starter course for women only.
The class will be held on Saturday, July 13 at the Reynolds Homestead from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The fee for the class is $30, which includes the use of all needed equipment. a boxed lunch, and a membership to Trout Unlimited.
Participants will spend the morning learning fly casting techniques, essential knot tying, choosing gear and tackle, proper fly selection, and water safety.
A break will be held for lunch then everyone will hit the two ponds at the Reynolds Homestead to practice casting and catch-and-release techniques. This will be a fantastic opportunity to learn from the best fishermen around, and practicing on the ponds means you do not need a fishing license.
Class is limited to 15 participants; pre-registration and payment are required. Call the Homestead at (276) 694-7181 to register.
