On Saturday June 11 in conjuction with the Pa FBC we held the 3rd Women's Fly Fishing Camp, tailored to introduce women to the exciting sport of Fly Fishing..
We introduced 10 Women to the wonderful world of Fly Fishing
We started with a couple of hours of classroom intruction on water, bugs and equiopment and that mess of technical jargon that is Fly Fishing.
We then went to learning how to tie knots, lunch and finished with the highlight of the day, personalized Fly Casting Instruction
By the end of the day Students could cast a pretty good line and they were ready to cacth fish. 
We are hoping these new fly fishers work on thier skills and get iinvolved with the Chapter and some of the work projects we do to conserve our cold water fishery.
A sport without friends is a sport in trouble.

Saturday June 11, 2022 10 am - 2pm  at the Environmental Community Building 

Frances Slocum State Park


As you can see from the previous notes here on FACEBOOK OR THE SCTU WEBSITE. 

We, at Stan Cooper TU, are once again sponsoring a Women’s fly fishing camp in conjunction with the Pa Fish Commission and Lackawanna Valley Trout Unlimited.

We have a large number of female students who want to learn how to fly fish and we need additional instructors. The Fish Commission handles the early lectures on Bugs and fishing techniques.

We need you for the 2nd half of the class on Knot tying and Fly Casting.  You don’t need to be an expert on either.  The Camp starts at 10 am at the Environmental community Building at

Francis Slocum State Park and we’ll wrap up at 2pm.  Most of the students will have no idea what they are doing so you will be the expert.


We would prefer to have female instructors.  Lackawanna Valley  TU  is supplying 3 female instructors and Stan Cooper would like to do the same

A lunch consisting of assorted wraps drinks and cookies, brownies  etc will be provided.  


It is a nice day and it’s an even better way to give back to the rivers, we all love and to encourage more women into our sport,   Remember a river without friends is a river in trouble.
