The Reunion Retreats are for any woman who has previously attended one of our New Participant Retreats and would like to hone her fly fishing skills, wade in the river once again, enjoy a little bit of nature and some fun and smiles.

You may register to attend as many Reunion Retreats as you like, as long as you register and can meet or exceed the physical and health requirements for each retreat. Space is limited at each retreat and restrictions may apply.
