MILLS RIVER, N.C. — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is offering a women-only fly-fishing weekend on April 21-23 at the North Mills River Recreation Area and Campground in Henderson County. It is open to women of all skill levels who want to learn more about fly fishing. The $125 registration fee covers instruction, fishing equipment and camping for the weekend, and a light lunch, beverages and snacks on Saturday.
The 3-day program, which will be held rain or shine, is being offered through the Wildlife Commission's Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program (ncwildlife.org/BOW). Accommodations are at an outdoor campground, which includes a bath house with hot showers and restrooms. Participants should bring their own tents and equipment, if they have them; however, space in one of two small group tents will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Contact BOW coordinator BB Gillen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-218-3638 to reserve a tent space.
