Virginia Fly Fishing some Ideas

By all means I am not much of a Fly Anglerhowever I love doing it.Here in Virginia Cold Stream fly fishing isnot all that easy to come by wellatleast not where we are so we do have to travel.Wehave a few events that are coming up that I can highly recommend.Thefirst one is important because it is geared toward Children all the way buttrust me there is plenty to do for the Adults.Thisyear Heritage Day or Kids day in Madison County at the Graves Mountain Lodge isApril 7th.My suggestion is, get there early.We  have done this event with my daughterbefore and planning on going again this year. It was a great time down to thearts and crafts and Hay Rides. Children can keep their trout so be prepared.Again if you are planning on fly fishing get there early to secure your spot.Formore information please see ://www.virginia.org/Listings/Events/GravesMountainHeritageDay/ Onthe Top of my list of Fly Fishing things to do, is the Virginia Fly FishingFestival in Waynesboro Virginia. April 21 and 22.Thisyear is going to be a very Special Festival for my husband and I. My Boss gaveus and all expensive paid weekend for the Festival, down to a stay at a localInn.Thiswill not be our first time going. You can see my now Husband Mark and I withLefty Kreh 2010 at the Fly Fishing Festival in the picture below( My husband will not mind when Imention here I have a fishing crush on Lefty Kreh, let me tell you that man cancast that flyline, incredible) I am once again looking forward to running intothis living legend.Ialso signed up for some paid lessons with Wanda Taylor, who in herself is alsowell known here in Virginia for many reason. It is nice to see that events arewilling to cater to the growing interest in Women in the sport. Several classesand seminars are aimed at the female fly angler, so I am looking forward tothose events.ProjectHealing Waters will be on hand. And trust me your shopping needs will be met.Orvis will be there as well as many others. There will be something foreverybody. Bring your non fishing Spouse or friend to enjoy the Wine Festivalgoing on at the same venue. That is included with Admission.Last but not leastthis is a Child friendly event with Casting Classes for Kids and a trout pondas well. Our Children are our next Generation Angler!Formore on this exceptional event please see//www.vaflyfishingfestival.org/Iwill try to write follow up Blogs on both events.By all means say hi andstrike up a conversation with both my Husband and I, we love to talk aboutfishing and meet new people.Pleaseremember take your Children fishing, they are our next Generation AnglersTightLines
