Hello and Welcome

From the beginning the intent of Reel Women Fly Fishing Adventures was always to create a welcoming environment for women to grow in fly fishing. We’ve heard many times that our programs have helped women learn the sport as well as develop more confidence in other parts of their lives. From Back to Basics classes to Guide school we can introduce you to the next level. RWFFA can also tailor our timing and programs to your schedule and needs with private clinics or guide trips where you want to be.

We are grateful to have made so many friends over the years. The stories that flow as examples from Guide School and in our weekly newsletters tell all. Once you are ‘hooked’ it could inspire you to change your life too.  If something on our site sparks an interest, “Cast to Your Dreams”. We’ll help you land them!

Life on the Fly .... By Lori-Ann Murphy
“Days have got away of crowding up your mind. Little bits and pieces that the river leaves behind.”

Reel Women Song from "Too Many Horses" by Dave Munsick.

Here we are, twenty years down the road and a few things haven’t changed! Tressa is still packing and fishing with her horses and I’m immersed in my island community and fly fishing life in Belize. Our Reel Women Fly Fishing Adventures Team has and will continue to be a family. We might not always be with each other day in and day out, but the commitment to keep what we love alive is important to us. Like magnets that find connection, we have found and continue to find each other. Our Team includes not only guides but our angling community at large. I know so many of you never believed that a simple cast could lead to such a catch in life. I know this is certainly an unplanned life for me. My RN degree gave me the confidence to implement fun. I used to love to start an IV in the morning for a pre-op patient in Tucson - and as I was tapping away at a vein, “Oh, by the way, I’m a fly fishing guide in Montana.” I became addicted to watching eyes sparkle instead of the cloudy ones from fear. These are the kinds of things that propelled me in my life and continue to do so. These are the things I immerse myself in because it’s the only thing that makes sense to me. And the more I find myself open to new horizons, the more I feel connected to this life - which we share in nature.

The Tobacco Roots are pictured here - ready to take on another Montana winter. The chilly air brings a reminder from the sunny days spent on the river just a few weeks ago. New stories from our fly fishing life are now being told. We have new plans because the goose bumps that hit us as soon as we reached the river - or flat, or favorite place to be, was so damn cool, we want to know that feeling again and again. “Little bits and pieces that the river leaves behind,” - are the very things that keep us happy.

If you want to smile and feel connected to good times, here is our Reel Women song to you, written and preformed by our buddy Dave Munsick in Wyoming.

Let the big space fill our hearts and finding our way make us smile. I look forward to seeing you this fishing season - that always has a plan for fun. L-A

Saltwater Slam
March 6-10, 2021
Ambergris Caye in Belize offers the adventurous fly fisher the opportunity to fly fish for bonefish, permit, tarpon, jacks and barracuda. The occasional cobia and snook are also targeted. The conservation efforts over the last ten years have produced very healthy population numbers for the fishery. We’re seeing some huge bonefish cruising the flats in addition to the plentiful schools of 2-4 lb fish. Permit and Tarpon schools continue to increase and plenty of tails abound! Our guide team is ready to show you all the specialness of Isla Bonita! Come cast your fly in the beautiful Caribbean. Belize is open and travelers are showing up. We look forward to providing you the very best.

Join us for six nights, 4 days of guided fishing and one free day to explore San Pedro. Our english speaking guides will take you to all the great spots so you can slam! On your day off choose from snorkling, paddle boards, biking or just relax on the beach. If there is something else you’d like to see or do, just let us know and we’ll make it happen! Casting clinics with Lori-Ann Murphy and the Reel Belize Team.$3,295 Single Occupancy or $2,995 Double Occupancy. #reelwomenflyfishing #flyfishing ##flyfishingwomen #girlswhofish #guideschool #montana #montanaliving #yellowstoneriver #belize #reelbelize #saltwaterflyfishing #flyfishingtheworld #flatsfishing #americanmuseumofflyfishing #belizeflyfishing

Women's Madison River Trip
This is one of the favorite Montana trips and it fills quickly every year. We spend seven nights on the Madison River with six days of fishing. Three days of fishing from a drift boat with guides. The other we wade different sections of this iconic river to give you the full Madison River experience. There will also be clinics with Lori-Ann on those days. You’ll also have the ability to fish independently but ask questions as we’ll be nearby to help or net your fish!

We anticipate the Salmon Fly Hatch coming off during this week each year. Those fish are hungry and slam the big bugs when they hit the water! Prime fly fishing dates and what a blast it is! Single Occupancy $3,295 or
Double Occupancy $2,995 https://reelwomenflyfishing.com/womens-madison-river-trip/#reelwomenflyfishing #flyfishing #womenwhoflyfish #flyfishingwomen #girlswhofish #guideschool #montana #montanaliving #yellowstoneriver #americanmuseumofflyfishing #belizeflyfishing #brooktrout #browntrout
