Women's Intermediate Fly-Fishing Weekend: May 3-5 in Walpole NH

CONCORD, N.H. -- Registration opens March 4 at  for a Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) Intermediate Fly-Fishing Weekend on May  3-5, 2013, at Alyson's Orchard in Walpole, N.H. Participants should have some  fly-fishing experience.  Applications may  only be submitted by mail.

"The goal of this course is to help attendees move  towards independence as fly-anglers," said Karina Walsh, who coordinates  the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's Let's Go Fishing Program, which  teams up with BOW to present the program.

The event begins with registration on the evening of  Friday, May 3, and concludes at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 5. The cost for the  weekend is $295, which includes all meals, lodging, instruction and materials.

Participants will stay in Rochambeau Lodge (two persons  per room) at Alyson's Orchard in Walpole, N.H.  (  Linens  will be provided; baths are shared. Meals will be served family-style in the  lodge dining room, with bag lunches provided for the two days afield.

The course will cover the finer points of casting, such  as accuracy, timing and shooting the line; reading the water and then picking a  proper fly and knowing how to cast it; what to do when you catch a fish -  playing and releasing; and angling ethics.   Participants will have the opportunity to fish both still and moving  water.  Attendees must supply their own  rod and reel.  A fishing license is not  required during scheduled class time.

The Connecticut River Valley provides a scenic backdrop  for this event. The river and its corridor are home to nearly 300 species of  native animals.  The Connecticut is a  nationally recognized trout fishing river. Fish and Game helps to meet angler  demand by stocking approximately 33,750 trout into the Connecticut River each  year. The river is also home to perch, bass, pickerel, walleye, pike, shad and  alewife.

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman programs in New Hampshire are  co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department and the New  Hampshire Wildlife Federation.  Looking for a trout pond to fish on call Lady of the Lake Realty at 1-888-737-5550 or e-mail at or visit our website to view lake homes in New Hampshire at or
