Fly Fishing for Women by Women
The Women’s Program Mission
We break down the barriers for women joining this recreation! The mission is to create fun, accessible, women’s-only education, retreats, day trips, and conservation efforts.
Below are our options for your fly fishing journey to begin. We are so happy to have you!
Our education opportunities are seasonal. For the winter season, we are educating students on the closest place that we can fish: the Puget Sound!
Winter half-day schools teach casting, knot tying, locations, matching the hatch and planning. They take place at Lincoln Park. There are two classes per day: morning (9am-1:pm) and afternoon (1:30pm-5:30pm).
Winter Half-Day School Dates
(4 Hours Lincoln Park)
- November 16th and 30th: 9am and 1:30pm.

Educational Retreats and Dates
Our retreats are a double women’s only whammy! An educational first day specialized for the retreat location is paired with a guided trip on the second day to hone your skills! Importantly, retreats are held at beautiful locations around Washington and are rustic unless otherwise specified as an “elevated” experience. Also, did you know the two-day rustic retreats cost as much as a single full day guide trip? The more you know!
All retreats have gear, education, cots, air mattresses, warmers and lodging (Airbnb or tents) provided!
