The Cultural Affairs Association (CAA) and the Cutthroat Chapter of Trout Unlimited team-up to bring this new ladies fly fishing  class to Highlands Ranch. Ladies' Fishing on the Fly is dedicated to helping women learn and enjoy the sport in a supportive and non-competitive environment. We believe that fly fishing can be experienced on many different levels and that one need not be an expert to appreciate the beauty of the fish, the flies, the peace of the environment, the adventure, fun, and challenge of the sport. This program includes three classroom sessions, and one evening field-trip to Lake Lehow to put into practice what you've learned.

Classroom: August 2, 9,  & 16,  6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
