2021 Ladies Day Event Announced

To further carry on the mission of Trout Unlimited, the Doc Fritchey Chapter has continued its educational offerings to include a Women’s Conservation/Fly Fishing Program.

The 4 hour educational event will introduce women to the various aspects of conservation with a focus on the basic aspects of fly fishing. We will have educational and practical stations set up staffed by experienced fly fisherpersons to cover the following topics: 

Trout Basics: 

habits and food, insects and fly tying

rod, reel, line, tippet and knots

At the conclusion of the educational sessions the participants will have light snacks and informal question sessions with the instructors/chapter members. We will then begin to fish the stocked waters of Limestone Springs Preserve. Here participants will be fishing with DFTU Chapter mentors to practice their skills, feel the “TAKE” of the fly and catch a fish or two.
