Fishing Class Descriptions for the Alabama Becoming an Outdoors-Woman® Workshop
Introduction to Fishing—Develop basic skills needed to catch fish: casting, knot tying, lure selection, bait use, fish identification, and equipment choice. See how to fillet fish and have an opportunity to try. Practice new skills in Lay Lake.
Woolly Buggers and Friends—Learn how to tie your own flies including woolly buggers and other favorite fish foods. Becoming familiar with these hand-tied flies that imitate fish foods plays a key role in having a successful fly fishing trip. You may want to take ABCs of Fly Fishing in conjunction with this course. Requirements: bring your reading glasses, if needed.
Advanced Fly Tying-If Woolly Buggers and Friend left you excited about more techniques, David Erikson has agreed to take you to the next step with more advanced techniques and new and different materials. This class is for those that have taken Woolly Buggers and Friends and feel ready for more or for ladies that have experience with fly tying, its nomenclature, and simpler techniques. If you don't know how to whip finish, take Woolly Buggers and Friends. Requirements: previous fly tying experience and your reading glasses, if needed.
The Bass Class—Learn basic bass fishing theories, equipment use, lure selection, etiquette, and identification.
ABCs of Fly Fishing—Catch 'em on a fly! Learn basic fly casting techniques and learn about lines, leaders, knots and fly selection. Hiking will be involved; wear appropriate shoes.
Angler Adventures—End the weekend with lots of fishin' fun. This class is for participants of BOW fishing classes (above) to try their skills. Seasoned anglers may also take this class. No formal instruction is given, but one-on-one assistance will be available. This is a great time to try fly casting, spin casting or bait casting gear. However, if you are a beginner, take "Introduction to Fishing," "ABCs of Fly Fishing," or "The Bass Class" first.
