Ladies Fly Fishing Day
On July 12, 2011, the Doc Fritchey Chapter conducted its inaugural Ladies Fly Fishing Day at Ed & Nichole O’Gorman’s property along Clarks Creek. But just as the previous day’s high waters were receding to a fishable level, the heavens opened up during the afternoon and dumped enough rain to cause the stream to be unfishable. Fortunately, the O’Gormans’ pond saved the day for the group of about a dozen women to hone their fly fishing skills on the plentiful bluegill population, with a few nice bass thrown in for good measure.
The chapter plans to make this an annual event, and women of any age, with either some level of fly fishing skill or with no prior experience, are invited to learn the basics of fly fishing from our volunteer instructors. Scott Stoltz (717-574-9198) is the coordinator for this event.
