Women's Fly Fishing Class

Saturday July 20th

Manistee River Lodge is partnering with Fly Girls of Michigan to host their first annual Young Women in Fly-Fishing event here at our lodge!  They have 30 years of focusing on a mostly female group to provide women with Fly Fishing opportunities, so to celebrate we are hosting an all-women’s intro to Fly Fishing Day.  This class to open to all ages, come alone or take advantage of the day to spend with your mother, daughter, aunt, niece, grandma, grandkid, the list goes on!  We have openings for 20 women to attend; we will be providing the gear (unless you have a fly rod you would like to bring) and a lunch.  The class will be on July 20th from 10am – 1pm, here at Manistee River Lodge.  We will be covering knots, flies, casting, equipment education and safe fish handling practice!  At MRL we have a casting pond stocked with our pet fish and a conference center where we will have lunch!  We will also be offering Redington Wrangler Combo kits for a special discounted price for those who participate in the class.  This includes rod, reel, fly line, leader, and case! More details to come, to sign up please call the shop at 231-848-8488.  We will email you a form you need to fill out to cement your class spot!
