The fly-fishing workshop is part of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission’s Becoming An Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program. Fly-fishing workshop participants will receive hands-on instruction from experienced instructors on the basics of fly fishing, including casting, knots and fly tying. After learning the basics, participants will test their new skills by fishing for largemouth bass and bluegill on two ponds at the center.

Participants should bring sunscreen, insect repellant, comfortable clothing and footwear. Sign in begins at 8 a.m. A registration fee of $20 covers rods, reels and all equipment, as well as lunch, drinks and snacks. Pre-registration is required and the workshop is limited to 40 participants on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) is an international program in which women age 18 and older learn outdoor skills through hands-on experiences. In North Carolina, BOW workshops are held across the state, providing instruction on fishing, hunter safety, target shooting, archery, canoeing, motorboat safety, outdoor cooking, tracking,  map-and-compass orienteering, and other outdoor skills.
