A special women-only weekend of fly fishing on the Davidson River promotes the outdoors
The Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program, conducted by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, will offer a special fly-fishing weekend camping trip for women on April 1-3 in the mountains.

Activities will be held at the Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education and Davidson River Campground, south of Asheville near Brevard. The registration fee is $125, with partial scholarship options available. For more information, contact BB Gillen at (919) 218-3638 or bb.gillen@ncwildlife.org

“It doesn’t matter what skill level or previous experience you have,” said BB Gillen, outdoor skills coordinator. “You’ll gain new skills or improve your techniques while you learn about an angler’s important role in cold water conservation.”

The workshop will be held rain or shine. Fly-fishing equipment will be provided, but participants can bring their own. April can be cool and damp, so appropriate dress is advised. Also recommended: sunscreen, insect repellent, rain gear, a folding chair, hat and water bottle, along with outdoor clothes, shoes, socks, toiletries, flashlight, linens and, if camping, a tent. Optional lodging opportunities are conveniently located nearby.

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman is an international program in which women 18 years old and up can learn outdoor skills through hands-on experiences. In North Carolina, BOW workshops are held across the state and offer a variety of outdoor skills, including fishing, hunter safety, target shooting, archery, canoeing, motorboat safety, outdoor cooking, tracking and map-and-compass.
