|The New York Times And All Around The Country *******Women In Fly Fishing Are In The News*******
Women are getting quite a bit of recognition in fly
fishing! We do it our way....having fun, enjoying the
beauty of the incredible outdoors, making friends and
working on getting good at casting and catching.
AP writer, Pat Graham did such a great job of
capturing the joy
that I and 17 other women experienced in a clinic in
Colorado. It's been fun watching this article as
newspapers and online media sites have picked it up
all around the country.

|CampExperience 2006 - Inspiration And A Lot Of Fun - The Birth of An Amazing Annual Event
"Fly Fishing was selected as everyone's favorite at
the July 19-21, 2006 CampExperience at Copper
Mountain Resort. For many it was a life-long dream
to fly fish on the shore of a beautiful high mountain
lake... and Char and Kathy were wonderful leaders."
Betsy Wiersma, Head Camp Counselor Extraordinaire
What a time we had. Can you imagine
spending 2.5 days with 170 women from all roads
of life. Our "camp counselors" were best selling
authors, a nationally acclaimed singer/songwriter, a
top psychic intuitive, reflexologists...oh, I can't list
everyone here. And YES, we did wear our belly
dancing skirts to Fly
Fishing 101. The fish had nothing to fear. After we
slapped the water a few hundred times learning
to cast, the fish rose out of the water just beyond
our reach. They sure looked like they were laughing.
Over $19,000 was raised to support transitional
housing for homeless women and children.

It's about women helping women and doing good
things for the world. Just think about it, when you
take one of my clinics, or if I teach you to fly fish,
ski or snowboard, we're helping other women and
children along the way. 100% of the money I
receive from my teaching goes to the Denver Rescue
Mission's Champa House. Basically, I sell my product
but I give away my time to these women who are
working hard to change their lives and the lives of
their children. It's a WIN, WIN, WIN. I win because
meeting you, you win because you're learning to fly
fish! While doing that, we're giving to a very worthy
cause. The magical lesson I've learned is that I could
never give as much as I get in return. I invite you to

Meet the Lovely Lucy Bowden!
Lucy Bowden is a lovely, ambitious young woman
an absolute passion for fly fishing. She
learned from her father who
learned from his. Here's what Lucy has to say,
"I started www.fishingforeveryone.com
two years ago to encourage women in the UK into
I believe fishing is an activity anyone can take part
in, that no matter your age, race, gender or ability-
anyone can fish! I sell women's clothing and
equipment on the site and I love the Char Bloom
Char Bloom has been very successful both on my
website and at trade shows I have attended
throughout the year. The garments are perfectly
designed for the female angler, with fantastic colors
and fit and with pockets in all the right places. I
absolutely love my pink fishing vest!"
