An exciting opportunity, for women interested in learning about fly fishing, will be happening at Laois Angling Centre on Saturday 23rd September.
The event has been organised by the Irish Ladies Flyfishing Association. It will include a short indoor introduction followed by 4 hours casting instruction and practice outside.
The course is aimed at beginners or novice anglers aged over 18 and all equipment will be provided.
Women will be travelling from all over Ireland to take part and full joining instructions will be sent to those who book.
Anne Kerrin Chair of the Irish Ladies Flyfishing Association said,
‘This is an amazing opportunity for women to learn about fly fishing. The benefits of angling have been known for a long time but it’s been a well kept secret. To be outdoors with nature surrounding you, in beautiful places, really gives a boost to your inner-being.
And most times it doesn’t matter if you catch a fish or not. The fish is a bonus. It’s also great exercise. Scrambling 5 miles up along a river bank and wading really works the inner core. I hope that this encourages women to think about trying out angling. All equipment will be provided and participants just need to wear warm clothes and to bring waterproofs.’
The Irish Ladies Flyfishing Association is a national organisation that encourages women to take up flyfishing and it runs a league of 4 trials annually to select a team to represent Ireland at the Ladies International Flyfishing Championships.
