Another successful women's steelhead outing

Last weekend was our annual United Women on the Fly outing on the Grande Ronde River. For the past few years Heather Hodson has put together groups of ladies interested in learning the art of steelhead and spey fishing with us and this year was another good one.

Kelby and Bjorn guided the ladies into some excellent steelhead despite the odds this year. We teach both spey and indicator tactics on our trips and depending on what folks want to do we can cater to one, the other, or both! We don't care what preference your angling style is, we just want you to have fun, learn something new, and enjoy your time on the water.

While only a few steelhead were landed the size was very impressive, many smiles and good times were had. The weather hung in there to make for a beautiful weekend and we look forward to next year's women's steelhead weekend. Stay in touch with us or United Women on the Fly if you would like to attend the next excursion.
