The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission’s Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program will offer a basic fly-fishing skills workshop on March 22, at the John E. Pechmann Fishing Education Center in Fayetteville, N.C.
This provides a thorough overview of fly tying, fly casting and fly fishing and plenty of hands-on learning. Experienced instructors emphasize the importance of basic casting techniques and offer one-on-one instruction. After classroom instruction, participants use their new skills on two trout ponds. A $20 fee covers instruction, equipment, lunch, drinks and snacks.
Pre-registration is required and the workshop is limited to 20 participants. BOW is an international program for women, 18 and older, conducted in North Carolina through the Wildlife Commission.
“Fly fishing tends to be associated with mountain streams, but this workshop and its setting in Fayetteville shows the range and diversity of this wonderful fishing method,” said BB Gillen, state BOW coordinator.
The John E. Pechmann Fishing Education Centeris located at 7489 Raeford Road, Fayetteville. The center is the Wildlife Commission’s only education facility dedicated to teaching visitors about conservation of North Carolina’s freshwater fishery resources and providing visitors with opportunities to learn fishing skills in the classroom and on the water.
