Yellowstone Angler YNP Women workshops

 

Ladies, have you always wanted to learn how to fly fish but don’t know where to start? Join us for a one or two day Women’s Fishing workshop in Yellowstone National Park!  The Yellowstone Angler’s Women’s Fishing Camp is a women’s only guided fly fishing camp geared towards beginner female anglers.


Learn the basics of fly fishing in a low stress and fun environment!  Learn casting, knots, flies, entomology, reading water, and what to look for when pursuing trout.  Spend one or two days exploring Yellowstone National Park and chasing trout across the beautiful landscapes with patient and knowledgeable guides.

Yellowstone is the perfect place to learn.  It’s incredibly scenic, you have room to work on your cast, and there are eager trout to get you excited about fly fishing. Get the tools and knowledge you need to go out on your own and feel confident on the water. Gather some of your girlfriends, your Mom, your sister, or come solo and meet like minded ladies who love the outdoors.  


This camp is perfect for beginners or “never evers.”  Bring your own gear if you have it - if not, your guide will hook you up.  A 9'#5 fly rod and reel combo will be perfect.  The park is wade only and has great trout fishing available via very short walks or longer hikes. Hiking will depend on group desire.

 

Women's Workshop

 


For single day camps, meet your guide at the Yellowstone Angler in Livingston, Montana to pick up licenses for the Park and grab some flies or other needed equipment.  Your guide will have a productive selection of flies for you, but if you wanted some extra flies or wanted to get your own tippet, nippers or other gear, that is the time to pick up a few items.  Depending on client desire and needs, a quick casting lesson can be done on the lawn at the shop.  From there we will load up and head into the park and fish for the day.  Lunches are included, as is water and soda.


For two day trips, you can chose to meet at the shop, or at your campsite/another location. You will need to get a Yellowstone Park fishing license though, so make sure to pick one of those up somewhere if you are meeting your guide somewhere other than the shop.  A quick casting lesson will be performed if needed, and then we will hit the water!  Lodging is not included, but we can point you in the right direction for great campsites or hotels in the area if needed.  The second day we will head back into the park and explore a new stream and put our skills to the test.


These camps are designed to be fun, educational and empowering above all. The goal is to give women the basic skills and knowledge to feel able and confident to go out and fish on their own.  Ladies should leave feeling empowered and knowledgeable enough to make decisions and have an understanding of what is happening. 

 

Fly fishing can seem overwhelming and we understand that. We hope to break it down and ease any nervousness you may have towards it.  Fly fishing can be therapeutic and highly rewarding, and we want you to be able to experience it!
