Women interested in learning the basics of shooting, archery and fly fishing are invited to attend Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s “Cast, Blast and Twang” clinic to be held in Grand Junction, Saturday, May 18 from 8 a.m. to mid-afternoon.

The three-part class is designed for novices interested in learning about these popular outdoor activities and is open to women from across the state, however space is limited.

“Many ladies want to hunt or fish, but they don’t have a mentor,” said Kathleen Tadvick, education coordinator for Colorado Parks and Wildife. “This class is perfect for them because it teaches the fundamentals of fly fishing, archery and the safe use of shotguns in a comfortable, women only environment.”

Tadvick adds that no experience or equipment is required, and suggests that anyone planning on attending should consider bringing a friend to add to the fun and enjoyment of the class.

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.
