Advanced Women Sport Fly Fishing

Advanced Fly Fishing

UBCL 201 – Advanced Fly Fishing is brought to you by Crazy Rainbow Fly Fishing and the Ugly Bug Fly Shop. Ugly Bugs and Crazy Ladies is an annual event catering specifically to women in the sport of fly fishing. Inspired by the Orvis 50/50 campaign, we wanted to give women some options for learning how to fish in an environment that mitigates an often-intimidating skill to learn. Through this progressive program, we have made the sport of fly fishing more accessible and comfortable for all women. 


Fish the Famous Grey Reef

Did we mention this all takes place on the famous Grey Reef section of the North Platte River? That’s right! Learn to cast, tie knots and flies, read water, get familiar with entomology, wade fish, and then guided during peak season. Choose the class that best suits your experience level, and we will take care of the rest!


Self-Suffcient Fly Fishing

Our 201 course is designed to ‘up the ante’ when it comes to being self-sufficient on the water. The 201 offers a natural progression to the 101 as we begin to dig a bit deeper in the science and art of fly fishing.

First come first serve. Spots are filling quick, call the shop to book your spot! More dates and fly fishing courses listed below. Choose your dates and the fly fishing training experience that fits you.
