Yellowstone Another tidbit on Yellowstone – they have just announced a Women only Fly Fishing program. I for one like hanging with the guys for fishing – I like the competition and the strong silent types.

But when travel organizations get creative and cast out test packages like this one – we can reward them with our attention and approval, literally helping build the travel trend of serving us adventurous gals.

Below are the deets. If you have thought learning fly fishing before (and we all thought about it as we gazed on Brad Pitts sinewy shoulders in A River Runs Through It)  now is your chance to act and book a hot summer sojourn! The price is right!

Scheduled for this August 10 – 13, the four-night program is based at Lake Yellowstone Hotel and includes accommodations in Frontier cabins; a special gift for each participant; all breakfast and lunches, and one dinner; eight hours of instruction each day; handouts, and use of equipment, including fly rods, reels, flies, fly-tying tools, lines and waders. The package is priced at $1,867 per person single occupancy and $1,649 per person double occupancy.
Under the guidance of nationally recognized fly-fishing instructors Molly Semenik and Matt Wilhelm of the Yellowstone Fly Fishing School, participants will learn about fly fishing in a fun, informative and non-intimidating environment. A wide ranch of fly fishing topics will be covered including casting, aquatic insects, reading the water, fly tying, safety, ethics and etiquette, hooking and landing fish and current challenges to Yellowstone’s fish and their habitat.

The "Fun on the Fly: Learn to Fly Fish" program is offered several times throughout the summer, although the August 11 program is the only one designated for women only.
