Connecting fly fishing communities through exchanges, creating the opportunity for diverse fly fishers to learn from each other and discover new waters.
2020 Fly Fishing Programs Coming Soon!
Bringing together Maine Women Fly Fishers with Bozeman-based MT Fly Gals, an exchange opportunity for women in both communities was born. Over the course of 6 days, we fished legendary rivers like the Yellowstone, Madison and Gallatin, met with industry giants and learned about local fly fishing initiatives - all while finding new fishing buddies through the process.
To balance the reciprocal exchange with Bozeman, new friends from away will be welcomed to Maine Women’s turf for an exciting week of fishing native brookies and exploring the pine tree state. From tracking smelt runs to backwoods ponds and lakes to throwing flies off the rocky coast, the group will share knowledge, participate in conservation efforts, and [with luck] tie a few Gray Ghost streamers in honor of Confluence Collective’s top inspiration and celebrity Mainer trout bum, Carrie Gertrude Stevens.
