Fly Fishing School for Women

Weatherby’s Lodge offers both 2 and 3-day women’s only fly fishing school taught by women instructors. The lodge is within walking distance of Grand Lake Stream, renowned for its landlocked salmon fishing, spectacular wading and scenic beauty. Whether you are a beginner or experienced fly angler, the school will help you to fish confidently on your own or with one of your new fly fishing “buddies.” Highlights of the course will include: instruction in casting; reading the water; knot tying; equipment selection; fly tying; wading and safety. You will have plenty of on-stream time with your instructor as well as time to fish on your own. The small class size gives us the flexibility to address the individual needs and interests of the participants.

Our schools vary in length from either three or four nights and the cost of the school includes lodging, all meals, all instruction, and equipment use including waders and rods. We will provide a 20% discount on ORVIS equipment purchased during your stay.  Tax not included.
