Women's Fly Fishing

We are proud to teach + guide for Red's Fly Shop's Women's Fly Fishing Collective -- and we can't wait to get on the river with you.

Women's Intro to Fly Fishing Clinics

The Women's Intro courses are taught at Red's Fly Shop along the banks of the Yakima River. These are land based courses so students don't need any of their own gear to participate. It's a comfortable environment with espresso available at check-in.

This intro course has a strong emphasis on learning to fly cast. It's the most fun and some might even say addictive! You'll also learn a bit about where trout live and how to tie on a fly.

Topics Covered:

  • Understanding the Gear
  • Intro to Fly Casting
  • Where Trout Live
  • How to Tie on Your Fly

Instructors: Shannon Mahre + Ashtyn Harris

Cost: $49/person

2024 Schedule: June 2nd, July 6th, August18th 


Women's Divide + Conquer Clinics - Naches

The Naches River Divide and Conquer outing begins on the lawn at Bron Yr Aur Brewery in Naches with a casting refresher and strategy session. After an hour of casting and planning, the group will break up into informal groups of 2-4 women and head to the Naches River. 

While these are not guided trips, there is a support network. Your coach will lay out the plan in the morning, and this program is designed to let women help women achieve success and create a sisterhood that can adventure, learn, and succeed together. You will need your own rod, reel, leader, and a couple of dry flies for this excursion.

  • 60 Minute Casting Class and Refresher at Bron Yr Aur Brewery in Naches
  • Break Into Groups of 3-4 Ladies (works great to bring a friend or two!)
