Fly Fishing a Hit With Women

The Sacramento Bee: “Fly fishers are a fixture amid the wild scenery of Northern California rivers, wading knee-deep into the frigid rush and gracefully casting weighted lines in large loops.

The ultimate thrill comes when the angler presents a near-weightless fly so effectively that a fish mistakes it for the real thing and snatches it.

Despite this sport’s gentle – some say mysterious and romantic – nature, few of these anglers are women.

That’s a shame, fly-fishing aficionados lament, not just because so many women are missing out on fun and soul-mending scenery, but also because they agree that women can master the art of the fly more readily than men.”
