Women cast into fly fishing

MSU FlyGals

June 19, 2014

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.

Fly fishing.

MSU Fly Gals is a program underwritten by the Boone and Crockett Club to foster a love, understanding andMSU FlyGals 2014 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.
