Susan Thrasher has been teaching students how to fly fish through her Southern Brookies Guide Service and Camp out on the Caney Fork just east of Nashville for some time now. She also heads up an outstanding group of female anglers in Nashville called Music City Fly Girls who meet on a regular basis and take group fly fishing trips together.
Now you can learn from Susan through stories in her new book called "Thrasher’s Fly Fishing Guide: An Essential Handbook for All Skill Levels." It's a unique and entertaining twist on an instructional handbook. Who doesn't love a great story? It's a great way to remember certain pointers that will bring you more success in your fly fishing endeavors. I highly recommend you check it out. The book is available on Amazon!
Known as the best-kept secret in trout fishing...that is UNTIL NOW! Bahahaha...just kidding. Word has been out for a while now, but the area known as The Driftless has been a favorite among die-hard fly anglers and this week's guest on The Woman Angler & Adventurer podcast Geri Meyer is no stranger. Geri owns The Driftless Angler Fly Shoo as well as the Women's Fly Shop (online) so who better to have on the show to talk about this unique part of the country than her? Listen in and enjoy our conversation!
I had the chance to meet up with Heather Hodson from United Women on the Fly and Jen Ripple from DUN Magazine on location at Fly South in Nashville, TN on the very first stop of their road trip dubbed Rip and Hopper's Adventure and we had a blast!
Heather and Jen have embarked on a 19 day, 3,350 mile, 13 states from Tennessee to Washington road trip with the goal of fishing and meeting up with as many women as they can along the way. You can follow their entire journey on social media. Links included in the additional resources section below!
They had a ton of great information and insight to share on women in the world of fishing and fly fishing specifically. You're really going to enjoy this upbeat and fun episode of The Woman Angler & Adventurer!
