Colorado Parks and Wildlife announces women-only fly-fishing, archery and shotgun clinic

Daily News staff report

Shooting and hunting instructors Joni Bedell and Emily Curry (center) with Colorado Parks and Wildlife give instruction at a CPW program last summer.

Women interested in learning the basics of fly-fishing, archery and how to handle a shotgun safely are invited to a Colorado Parks and Wildlife "Cast, Blast and Twang" clinic in Kremmling.

Designed for novices 18 and older, the clinic is a women-only event and is scheduled to take place from 8:30 a.m. to mid-afternoon on Saturday, July 19. No experience or equipment is required, but participants should dress for the elements and bring all necessary supplies, including water, insect repellent and sunscreen. Lunch, snacks and drinks will be provided.

The class costs $20 and pre-registration is required by calling CPW's Hot Sulphur Springs office at (970) 725­-6200. Space is limited and the seminar is expected to fill quickly.

Participants are reminded that the class is not a hunter education course, which is required to purchase a hunting license. To find a hunter education course, visit CPW online or call a local CPW office.

Cast, Blast and Twang is offered through Colorado Parks and Wildlife's Hunter Outreach Program. The program includes workshops, clinics, seminars and educational hunts that focus on teaching the skills, ethics and traditions of hunting to novice youth and women.

For more information about novice and youth education and seminars, visit CPW's hunter outreach page online.
