Location: Wenger's Farm Pond, Elizabethtown
As a followup to our Coldwater Conservation Breakfast to be held at the Millport Conservancy on Saturday, April 13th, our Chapter of Donegal Trout Unlimited is proud to offer a Ladies' Fly Fishing Clinic.
Dianne Tidy, member of Chesapeake Women Anglers and FFF Certified Guide-Instructor has offered her services to teach this Clinic which is to be held at the property and one acre pond of Dr. & Mrs. Hugh Wenger at 403 Trail Road North, Elizabethtown, Pa. 17022-8430.
We anticipate that a video presentation of casting techniques and description of rod/reel parts and functions will precede the casting lessons, followed by fishing at the pond which has a sizeable catfish, bass and panfish population. There will also be instruction on leaders and knots and fly choices by Ken Tidy.
Plans are to start this clinic at about 9:30 a.m. A complimentary lunch will be held in the picnic grove in a shaded area and a porta-pot will be available with hand wash facilities.
Please bring a folding chair & water. Wear a hat, polarized sunglasses, insect repellent, sunscreen and appropriate clothing/footwear for the weather.
If you have your own fly rod & equipment, please bring that along. We will provide rods for those that don't own their own.
It doesn't get any better than this, so stay tuned. Contact Faye Haering if interested in participating.
Come on down and join the fun and learn to fly fish and hook into some really sizeable often-cooperative fish in this pond.
On a related matter, you may be interested in knowing that TU is offering a special one-year FREE membership to women joining for the first time. Additionally DTU is offering a free shirt to new women members of our chapter, while supplies last. A number of other women's initiatives are in the works, so it's a great time to get involved. (If joining via the TU website you will be arbitrarily assigned a chapter based on your mailing address. Once you've gotten your new member information, be sure to telephone national TU and change your affiliation to DTU: Chapter 037.)
Finally, there's a new website dedicated to Women in Flyfishing.
