The inspiration and mission of WFFI is to introduce and advance women in the sport of fly fishing by offering a wide variety of classes, workshops, trips and transformational fly fishing retreats for women of all ages and abilities.  Instruction is provided by some of the most talented and highly skilled women guides in the Northeast.  All classes and workshops can be customized according to the interests of the participants and can include a variety of other activities such as kayaking, yoga, hiking, horseback riding, or a trip to the flagship Orvis store in Manchester, Vermont.
