Event description
Fly fishing course in the heart of Montana for beginner to intermediate anglers who identify with the women's community.

About this event

The SheJumps River Development School: Madison River Camp, presented by Orvis, is a 3-day women's fly fishing course hosted in Ennis, Montana in the heart of the Madison River valley. The course is instructed by professional female fly anglers including Whitney Milhoan & Heather Hodson. The RDS is an opportunity for beginner to intermediate freshwater anglers to learn and build on fly fishing skills in a safe, supportive and encouraging environment. Topics covered include conservation and stewardship, preparation, safety, gear and equipment, casting, knots and rigging, entomology and reading water. The River Development School is the next step in your fly fishing journey – during the course of the weekend you will gain the philosophy, instruction, education and tools you need to become an independent, knowledgeable angler.

A 60 minute drive out of Yellowstone National Park transports you to Ennis, a small Montana town built around fly fishing. Participants will stay at the historic Riverside Motel which features wifi, hot showers and plenty of space to unwind and connect with fellow course participants. A stone's throw from the river and short walking distance from everything in town, this is the perfect location to nurture your love of fishing and the great state of Montana. Over the course of three days you'll explore the surrounding rivers, known by some international fishing guides as "the best fly fishing on earth."

A typical day starts with an early breakfast, team briefing and gear prep for a full day of hands-on skill building on the river. River Development School combines female led instruction with professional on-the-water guided fishing, for a 360 degree approach to learning and improving your fly fishing skills and river knowledge.
