This in from the Chica de Mayo team:
Hey Ladies – it’s almost time for the largest women’s fly fishing event in Montana, the United States, and well, probably the world! The River’s Edge and Simms Fishing Products are hosting the 10th Annual Chica de Mayo!
This ladies fly fishing event will be held at The River’s Edge WEST and Simms Fishing Products (see schedule below). Leave the guys at the river and come out for a fun day designed just for you!
This year, we’re offering several fantastic educational clinics for you to learn, ask questions, and fine-tune your fly fishing skills. These clinics will be hosted by some of the best in the field and of course, there will be incentives for your participation.
We are also thrilled to welcome Paula Shearer from PS On The Fly as a guest speaker. Paula is an angler and guide on the Bow River and Southern Alberta streams, and an ambassador for several fly fishing companies. Paula will share her unique journey into guiding fly fishing. We will also hear from Bozeman-based writer and editor, Sarah Grigg. Sarah is passionate about the craft of outdoor communication and how women in fly fishing (and any realm, really) can define their own terms for success.
The Casting for Recovery Crew and The Pink Drift boat will be on hand and there will be some great opportunities to fundraise for this important cause. Did we mention there will be fantastic prizes, plenty of fun, and a cocktail party to round out the day? So, grab a girlfriend and come hang out with some fun and fishy women! #chicademayo
