I just wanted to let you know about my new Ladies Fly Fishing Group - The Damsel Flies......
We fish mostly at Sutton Bingham Reservoir near Yeovil, Somerset for Brown & Rainbow Trout. You don't need your own fishing Tackle to start with and Tuition is affordable & can be easily arranged.
I only started Fly Fishing 2 months ago - but I am already addicted and realise that this amazing traditional sport must get more Ladies involved if it is to survive. To begin with I am fishing out of Sutton Bingham Reservoir (Wessex Water) to learn the basics but can't wait to get out on the Rivers.
So many people are being so supportive, and I'm getting help from all manner of people - and even got a mention on Radio 2 last week!
Please see our Facebook Page - and we also have a website www.damselflies.co.uk
I am doing this completely for my own pleasure and to connect Ladies from all over who share the love of this sport, but I am also trying my hardest to get new Ladies involved in this traditional sport. When I started I realised that rather than fishing on my own, it would be so much more pleasurable if I could fish with like minded ladies, but when I asked at Sutton Bingham about other ladies who fished there, they said I was the only one!!!
Please do contact me by telephone or email - details below if you are interested in joining our group - We love fly fishing, most of us are new to the sport but are very enthusiastic, and love to meet up for fishing, chat, and nice things to eat and drink :-)
