    This is going to be a great learning opportunity and a way to fish in a professional tournament just like the pro’s do. The fee for this event is $60 for the clinic only and $110 per person for the clinic and tournament. The tournament is a team tournament so find your best fishing pal and go for it.

    Besides the clinics and the tournament, the price also include a goodie bag and the dinner at the Fin and Feather. Your guests are welcome to attend the dinner for a fee of $15 per person. There will be a cash bar and vendor tables set up. You will also receive a membership into WI Women Fish and the World Walleye Association. Value of those items alone is worth more than the clinic fee.

    For those of you who are debating to just attend the clinic or to do the tournament, I want to encourage you to participate in the tournament. I did my first local tournament last year and it was a lot of fun. This will be a very friendly event and there will be a variety of abilities. People are willing to help you learn and our goal is to have everyone will walk away feeling like a winner.

    The instructors for this event are Marianne Huskey and Theresa Mead, the top women walleye anglers in the country. More information about both of them is listed on our web site. This will be an event not to miss.
