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

Grab a hold of your desire to make it happen! A road trip from Florida to Montana last summer lead to Frannie's first fish on a fly. She became the first female to receive the Boy Scouts of America fly fishing badge. I'm not sure who was more excited - Frannie, her mother Susan or Chloe who guided Frannie to her fish. But moments like these make memories. And it's these memories that we start thinking about this time of year.

Springtime is nearing and the natives are restless! The whole wide world is so excited to be outside and safe. Fly fishing in particular has had a huge growth spurt - the desire to be in nature having fun is directing the growth. In a time when planning a fishing trip now requires a few more things to make it happen, we can still make it happen. Whatever your comfort level might be - and since the norm has been challenged, we have needed to search for our comfort level - there is a piece of water waiting for you to explore.

And me too! Just because I have been guiding for thirty years doesn't mean that I have all of this figured out. My casts look terrible to me when I don't fish enough - and seeing that recently is enough to tell me I need to get out there! I'm so excited to see you soon on the salt flats of Ambergris Caye, Belize or on the most amazing rivers in the West this summer. Truly blessed.

—Thank you! L-A

Life on the Fly…..by Lori-Ann Murphy
We talked fishing all week. They fished hard and they were rewarded! Welcome to the story from our first week of our 6th Annual Women’s Permit Quest!

These women showed up from all over - leaving daily duties of work and family, to find some great fly fishing on the flats of Ambergris Caye. In these times, this is no easy task in itself. Making a commitment to learn more about fly fishing the salt - learning more about what it takes to get a fly to a tarpon and then make it stick. Casting to fast moving schools of permit and making a connection happen! These are just a few of the thrills and challenges. And with each day, I have the front seat to witness personal trials and triumph from these experiences. By the time we said “see you next time” and struggled with tears and air hugs - every single one of these women upped their game - their fly fishing game. They know it and we talked about how important it is to own it.

Confidence is a big word. But when Jenna said this morning, “I’m leaving more confident,” she was sharing this wonderful feeling that too often gets tested. Elese has been fishing the past two Permit Quests and now her next boat is going to be a flats boat. The sheer determination and growth for personal dreams is being shared, and it’s flat-out fabulous. Bri stayed on to learn as much as she can so she can return to teach and share. Liz left today with her slam for the week - a personal first. And a huge shout out to Steph for helping me this week as an assistant trip leader.

Thank you! Let’s share and fish when it works out for you. Until then, this group has left me feeling full of love. Cast to your dreams! L-A

Our second week of Permit Quest was impacted by the weather -for both inbound travel and the first cast. That being said there were still plenty of Bonefish landed and we had one Permit eat. Stay tuned, these women will be landing more great fish! ...
