On Saturday, August 11th, the West Denver Chapter of Trout Unlimited, in conjunction with Colorado Parks and Wildlife, will offer a full-day of learning to fly fish for women. The class will take place at Lake Lehow (Waterton Canyon) and run from 9 AM to 4 PM, with a break for lunch. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the science of fly fishing (aquatic entomology), the art of fly fishing (fly tying), and the sport of fly fishing (casting), as well as how to tie basic fishing knots and how to select a basic set of fly fishing equipment. Participants will also have the opportunity to fish the well-stocked lake under the tutelage of a TU member.
This class will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, and is limited to twelve women participants, ages 13 to adult. Participants should 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. Participants will need a valid Colorado fishing license in order to fish the lake.
