Women Anglers

Our mission is to promote the sport of fly-fishing among women.

Our goals are:

  • To provide skill building workshops, presentations and demonstrations.
  • To organize single day or overnight fishing trips.
  • To provide opportunities to assist with conservation efforts.
  • To provide a means for women fly-fishers to meet, network, fish, and socialize.

The SCCTU Women Anglers would like to honor a very special woman angler who has set up an endowment called the "Jean Brenchley Women Angler Support Fund" to support current and future women anglers to come. This fund has been set up specifically to promote the sport of fly fishing for women and help the Spring Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited develop a strong female presence. This fund will provide yearly monies that the SCCTU Women Anglers will use to teach fly fishing skills to the women who join us. Learn more about Jean and her fly-fishing journey

Join the women anglers at an upcoming event. There is no cost to attend a fishing event, and beginners are always welcome!

Our next fishing event is on Sunday, May 2 with fly fishing guide, Jamie SanFilippo, owner of the American Fly-Fishing Company: https://www.americanflyfishingcompany.com. Jamie is also a fellow Women Angler and the president of the Spring Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited!

Please RSVP to Diane Brown by emailing dmb490@gmail.com so we know how many women to expect. “Maybe” is okay. You will need waders and boots in addition to your license with trout stamp, rod, reel and other gear. Water, sunscreen, bug spray, and a wading stick may be helpful to bring, too. Masks are required while Jamie provides instruction, but may be taken off while in the water, if you prefer.
