REGISTRATION OPENS FEBRUARY 1ST!
Minnesota Steelheader's Women on the Fly Streamside Clinic is a chance for novice and intermediate steelhead anglers to learn the fundamentals of fishing our North Shore streams and rivers. The clinic also provides ladies who are interested in steelheading but have limited experience, an opportunity to gain the perspective and knowledge needed to begin their own steelhead quest.
This is an on the water clinic. Not only will you learn about the fishery, but you get some great facilitated fishing as well! You will be able to ask questions and get one-on-one time with our staff. The clinic also serves as a meet & greet for the women that fish the north shore and those who are interested in becoming "Women on the Fly". It's a great environment to meet and connect with other like-minded ladies. From sharing experiences to getting advice, women can learn a lot from one another!
What will you learn?
We review fishing equipment that is suitable for the techniques commonly used for steelheading: rods, reels, line, knots, flies/yarn, and miscellaneous extras.
We give a brief summary on steelhead/Kamloops and the spring spawning run. We also go into detail on how to read water and provide some tips on safe river crossing.
After our "classroom" instruction, our co-ed staff of instructors will split the group and hit the water so each group will have some hands on instruction on locating fish, fly/yarn selection, and presentation. Note this is not a casting class but some assistance will be provided as needed.
