Women invited to join in ‘Cast and Blast’

GRANBY I Women interested in learning the basics of fly fishing, shotguns and proper firearm handling are invited to a women-only “Cast ‘N Blast” clinic in Granby on June 22.
Designed for beginners, no experience or equipment is required. Participants are advised to dress for the elements and bring all necessary supplies, including water, insect repellent and sunscreen.
Lunch, snacks and drinks will be provided for the event, which runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The class costs $20 and pre-registration is required. Call Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Hot Sulphur Springs office at 970-725-6200. Space is limited and the seminar is expected to fill quickly.

Participants are reminded that the class is not a Hunter Education course, which is required to purchase a hunting license. To find a Hunter Education course, go to www.bit.ly/huntereducation, or call your local Colorado Parks and Wildlife office.
“Cast ‘N Blast” 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.
