Women cast into fly fishing
For the eighth year, 12 women have taken to the northern Michigan river the second week of June to take a nip of what has been documented to be highly addictive.
MSU Fly Gals is a program underwritten by the Boone and Crockett Club to foster a love, understanding and respect of fly fishing and outdoorswomanship.
The women, under the careful eye of fly fishing master Tom Sadler, learn the basics of the gear, the craft and the cast. A two-year program, it is followed by a float trip down the north branch of the AuSable River.
