The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will offer a special fly-fishing weekend for women through the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program on March 9-11 in the mountains.
Activities will be held at the Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education and Davidson River Campground, south of Asheville near Brevard in Transylvania County. The registration fee is $125, with partial scholarships available.
“It doesn’t matter what skill level or previous experience you have,” said B.B. Gillen, outdoor skills coordinator for the Wildlife Commission. “This weekend is tailored for individuals, so each angler will gain new skills and improve techniques, and learn about an angler’s important role in conservation on mountain streams.”
Fly-fishing equipment will be provided, but participants can bring their own gear.
