Have you ever tried to share your love of a sport or hobby, or "teach," the ladies in your life something that requires extreme patience on your end? Well, if you've ever tried to instruct a wife or girlfriend on how to fly fish or golf, it can either make or break a relationship. Well, West Denver Trout Unlimited has you covered on the fly fishing front with the chapter's first annual Women's Beginning Fly Fishing Class set for Aug. 11.
West Denver Trout Unlimited, in conjunction with the Colorado Department of Parks and Wildlife, will offer a full day of beginning fly fishing on Saturday at Lake Lehow at Waterton Canyon.
"The program will run from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. with a break for lunch," said Jon Weimer, president of West Denver Trout Unlimited. "Participants will have an opportunity to learn about the science of fly fishing including aquatic entomology, the art of fly fishing featuring fly tying, and the sport of fly fishing, actually hands-on casting.
"Attendees will also learn to tie basic fishing knots and how to select a basic fly fishing equipment," added Weimer. "Participants will have an opportunity to fish the well-stocked lake under the tutelage of a WDTU member."
If you know a lady that would enjoy this event or you are simply a gal that would like to meet some great people and learn a new sport, sign up for the event. Ladies should be sure to bring rain gear, sun screen, water, insect repellant and a lunch. All equipment and materials needed to participate in the class will be supplied. There will be a $10 fee charged to cover the cost of supplies and you'll need a Colorado fishing license to fish the lake. The class will be limited to only 12 women participants, ages 13 to adult.
