Fish DePuy's Spring Creek at the 2014 IFFF Women's Fly Fishing University
The Women's Two-Day Fly Fishing University will be held on Tuesday, August 5th and Wednesday, August 6th in Livingston, MT. All skill levels are welcome and attendees will participate in group sessions and focus groups based upon their individual fly fishing skills and interests.
The instructors include women who are Certified Casting Instructors, Professional Guides and Fly Tiers from across the country. This is a vast pool of experienced and accomplished professionals who will help you reach the next level in your fly fishing journey.
The University will be taught in the classroom, on the grass, and on the water. Instructors will cover a wide range of topics including different casting techniques and styles (basic through advanced); dry fly, nymph and streamer fishing; reading the water; selecting flies for the fishing situation; rigging and knots; and fishing a spring creek.
The University will move to DePuy's Spring Creek at noon on Wednesday, August 6th for a box lunch followed by a session on How to Fish a Spring Creek. We will be the only group fishing DePuy's Spring Creek on this afternoon and experienced instructors will be available to assist. While the University will officially close at 4:30pm each day, fishing can continue on the creek until 6:00 p.m. Anyone wishing to fish after that time on will need to register for workshop 100.
The Women's Fly Fishing University will meet at 9:00 am on Tuesday August 5th and Wednesday August 6th at the Livingston Park High School so that we can take advantage of the classrooms and the grassy casting areas. A sack lunch is included for both days, with morning and afternoon snacks.
Attendees will need fly fishing equipment including a 4 or 5 weight rod and reel with a size appropriate WFF line and OX or IX x 7.5 ft. leader for lawn casting and a 5X or 6X x 9 ft. leader with extra tippet spools down to 7X for fishing DePuy's Spring Creek. Bring your fly box to class both days. Flies for fishing DePuy's are available at the local fly shops if you need them.
Montana's weather can be unpredictable so please be prepared. Bring wading shoes, wading staff, fishing hat, Polarized sunglasses, rain gear, sunscreen, insect repellant, water and camera. Full waders or hip waders are recommended and may, or may not be necessary.
