Hey Ladies – it’s almost time for the best women’s fly fishing event in Montana. The River’s Edge and Simms Fishing Products are hosting the 9th Annual Chica de Mayo! This popular and ever-growing ladies event will be held at The River’s Edge – WEST and Simms Fishing Products (see schedule below). So, leave the guys at the river and come out for a fun day designed just for you! This year, we will offer five educational clinics for you to learn, ask questions, and fine-tune your fly fishing skills. These clinics will be hosted by some of the best in the field and of course, there will be incentives for your participation. We are also thrilled to welcome Mia Sheppard from Oregon’s Little Creek Outfitters as our guest speaker. Mia is an accomplished fishing guide and outfitter, three-time world champion spey caster, and ambassador for several fly fishing companies. Committed to conservation, she works for the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, is a river steward for Native Fish Society, and is the conservation chair for the International Women’s Fly Fishers. The Casting for Recovery Crew and The Pink Drift boat will be on hand and there will be some great opportunities to fundraise for this important cause. Did we mention there will be fantastic prizes, plenty of fun, and a cocktail party to round out the day? So, grab a girlfriend and come hang out with some fun and fishy women!
