Women's Fly Fishing Weekend June 16-18, 2017
Fly Fishing the rivers of the Preston and Lanesboro Area
Every level of ability is welcomed to join us.
We will stay at Trailhead Inn and Suites in Preston, MN. I reserved 2 suites which have 2 bedrooms (1 queen bed in each room), kitchen, living room area with a hide-a-bed, dining area and 1 bathroom. In addition, I reserved 1 hotel room with 2 double beds in the nearby Inn. We will plan to eat suppers together in one of the suites. The facility has a hot tub and fire ring on the grounds. See their website for details.
Plans are to car pool and leave Duluth around 8:30 AM Friday and return about 7PM on Sunday. We will eat our own prepacked lunches on the way south. The plan includes fly fishing the streams and rivers on Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday morning. Maybe go to Forestville State Park. As we get closer to leaving, a list of what to bring will be sent, including what kind of flies to have along.
Meals: Continental breakfast provided by the Inn. Lunches for Friday and Saturday are to be packed individually. Suppers, everyone bring some food readymade or groceries for simple cooking in Preston. Everyone bring a snack to share and favorite beverage for the evenings. Once we know who is coming we can plan our meals.
Cost per person: Lodging for 2 nights with 1 person per bed is $110.00 and 2 people per bed is $55.00, share cost of gas and share cost of groceries and 1 meal out while driving back on Sunday. Each person will pay Trailhead Inn with check or credit card for their portion of the lodging. Bring cash to settle for gas, etc. Your deposit will be applied to the lodging costs.
