We recently had our Women’s Weekend Learn to Fly Fish Retreat and what a weekend we had! We teamed with theFraser’s River Edge in Chilliwack, BC on the Fraser River to host seven up-and-coming Fly Gals, teaching them how to cast, tie knots, and catch fish…..
The incredible view from the lodge.
Breakfast prepared by Mike and Adriana Jones (owners of the lodge).
A happy cheer!
Hmmmm. Trophy fish? Hardly…
On our way to the river. Weekend motto; “what happens on the river, stays on the river”.
The Fraser River waiting for us to cause a major disruption.
Some of the lovely ladies getting ready to learn.
Yes, I know knots are boring, but believe me when I tell you that you’ll need this info one day!
Seriously, you’re going to need this info today…..attention please.
Oh, what concentration.
Passing the knowledge on (this is how it all begins folks!)
On to the casting.
Looking like I’m threatening to shoot whoever doesn’t listen.
Demonstrating a bad stroke.
Then showing why it’s so bad.
Hmmm. Yeah, I think we’ll stick to doing it our way.
So we spread out down the river and prepare to catch some Pink salmon.
I am woman hear me roar.
Landing a little hen.
First fish gets a kiss!
Scrappy little female, the fish was a fighter too ; )
Oops. Perhaps there are some leaks that simply can’t be fixed.
A sunset marks a perfect evening.
We will be making this an annual event. For more information on booking a space, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
