NC: Special, Spring Women-Only Weekend of Fly-Fishing, Camping and Fun

BREVARD, N.C. (March 15, 2011) – 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.
