Default Fly Fishing Trips for Women - by Ken Marlborough

[img2="left"][/img2]Fly Fishing Trips for Women
by Ken Marlborough

Fly fishing has been considered a mostly male pastime since its inception, but now many women are beginning to turn to this sport for fun, relaxation, and even competition. Many female competitors participate at or above the level of their male peers.

During the years, many men were unsupportive towards women wanting to fish because of the general mentality that women were supposed to stay in the homes, but as time passed more women began fly fishing and several organizations for women were created. Special women fly-fishing classes were created and several guides that only served women appeared.

Nowadays, several locations and companies provide women fly fishing trips. They teach women all the techniques necessary to be a successful fly fisher. Women are taught how to handle the rod and move it so that fish will be tempted, how to wheel in the fish once they are caught, what to wear for protection, and general tips for successfully luring and catching fish.

Over the years, many fly fishing competitions appeared that were only open to women, and others in which men and women competed alongside each other in an equal contest. Fly Fishing is no longer only a men's sport, as women from all over the world and all cultures are starting to practice it. Women from all different age groups and backgrounds enjoy the sport. The fly-fishing industry welcomes these women and provides everything possible so that they will continue participating in the sport. Participating in a woman fly-fishing trip is a good way to learn the basics of the sport and get a good idea of the techniques and skills necessary to catching fish.

Fly Fishing Trips provides detailed information about fly fishing trips, fly fishing gear, fly fishing knots and more. Fly Fishing Trips is affiliated with Bed And Breakfast Maine.

I saw a few women fishing this past weekend. However, I didn't see her or any one who looked like her.

Give a man a fish, he will have dinner. Teach a man to fish and he will be late for dinner. Quote by Someone. *L*
