Space remains for a one-day fly-fishing workshop for women only at the John E. Pechmann Fishing Education Center in Fayetteville on June 13, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The fly-fishing workshop is part of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission’s Becoming An Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program. Fly-fishing workshop participants will receive hands-on instruction from experienced instructors on the basics of fly fishing, including casting, knots and fly tying. After learning the basics, participants will test their new skills by fishing for largemouth bass and bluegill on two ponds at the center.
Participants should bring sunscreen, insect repellant, comfortable clothing and footwear. Sign in begins at 8 a.m. A registration fee of $20 covers rods, reels and all equipment, as well as lunch, drinks and snacks. Pre-registration is required and the workshop is limited to 40 participants on a first-come, first-serve basis. More information is available by contacting B.B. Gillen at 919-218-3638 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
