Our women’s course offers a similar curriculum to the Signature Course, with an exclusive approach combining hands-on education and quality instruction with camaraderie and scenery. We are hosting the Women’s course at the Harriman State Park on the Henry's Fork River.

While all of our courses are available to women, this particular program is designed for beginners as well as for those with more angling experience. The curriculum is comprehensive and covers a range of important topics in a fun and engaging way, ensuring that each student walks away with an abundance of new skills and knowledge. We’ll spend time each morning learning proper casting mechanics so that students will learn how to throw tight loops accurately and consistently - essential for all fly fishing applications. We will also cover all the common knots—clinch knot, surgeon’s knot, blood knot and nail knot so that students can feel confident going out to fish on their own. Afternoons are spent on the water covering topics such as “where to start”, “what fly should I use?”, “how to cover the water”, “how to rig up”, “getting the drift right”, “etiquette on the water”, “nymph vs. dry-fly fishing”, “reading and understanding the water”, and the various kinds of casts you need to know in order to be a successful and an effective angler.

Each evening around cocktail hour, a different angling celebrity will share a special presentation with the group. We can assure you that our line-up of presenters, coupled with the atmosphere will be nothing short of spectacular.
