Short and Mid-Belly casting is too often perceived by newcomers to the sport as being time-consuming and difficult to learn. At Fly Gal it is our mission
to open the hearts and eyes to aspiring fly-fishers and evolving students of the sport.
From the first-time fly-fisher, to the seasoned angler looking to rid themselves of bad habits (or to advance), all skill levels are welcome.
Every student is different and we are always eager to adapt our lessons accordingly in order to ensure that each new fly-fisher leaves us
confident and eager to hit the river solo.
FGV Co-Ed Learn to Skagit Cast Workshops are designed to introduce and teach the pure fundamentals ofdouble hand fly-casting.
This course teaches the mechanics of why and how Skagit casting operates, allowing students to develop their own style and work towards
the common goal of being able to cast efficiently and with distance, regardless of what side of the river they are on.
Students are encouraged to bring their own equipment so as to become familiar with their set-up

April Vokey  FlyGal, Anchored Podcast/Epic Fly Rods/Patagonia

April Vokey began fishing as a toddler. By the sixth grade, she was saving her allowance for weekend visits to the local tackle shop where she eventually stocked her ‘hand-me-down’ Plano box with every lure and bait she could afford.
After discovering a passion for fly fishing in her teens, April Vokey soon dedicated her entire life to the pursuit, eventually culminating in her founding Fly Gal Ventures in 2007 at age 24.  The company was built on the basis of the promotion of both education and encouragement to those who looked to chase their dreams.  She has since established herself as a respected authority in the sport and has traveled the globe in pursuit of gamefish on a fly rod.
Her writing has appeared in numerous industry leading publications including Fly Fisherman, Fly Rod & Reel, and Fly Fusion magazines. Also a popular TV personality, April has been featured on the Outdoor Channel’s Buccaneers and Bones series, 60 Minutes Sports, The Steve Harvey show, Discovery Channel’s Refined, Discovery’s/OLN’s Close Up Kings, and WFN’s Fly Nation TV.
Most recently, Vokey proudly wrote and hosted her own exclusive series, ShoreLines with April Vokey, as shown on the World Fishing Network.  The series focuses on fly-fishing’s rich history and the people it consists of.  Feeling limited by airtime, she has since branched out with her podcast, Anchored with April Vokey, a series dedicated to archiving the stories and personalities from some of fly-fishing’s most influential people. The show is one of the only fishing podcasts solely recorded in a face to face environment where April ensures to ask questions apart from the norm.
She is a Patagonia ambassador and co-owner of Epic Fly Rods.

Lee Davison:  Ballistic Fly Lines

Lee Davison’s passion for fly fishing and all things related to the sport. Lee is a Federation of Flyfishers (FFF) Master and Two Hand Casting Instructor, President of the FFF Western Rocky Mountain Council , a member of The Snake River Cutthroats (local TU & FFF chapter) and a licensed Idaho Fishing Guide with over 28 years of experience on the North and South Forks of the Snake River. Lee holds a degree in Business Management from the University of Texas and has extensive experience as a Project Manager for the Idaho National Laboratory and several large U.S. engineering/construction firms.

Lee combines both a calming patience and an infectious enthusiasm for introducing fly fishing. He teaches casting techniques that build confidence and skill in his angling students.

He’s been hooked on fishing ever since his Dad and Grandpa first took him, at age 5, on a quest for blue gills in an old wooden row boat on an Illinois strip mine lake. Lee has fished the waters from Alaska to the Gulf of Mexico, but home water for him is the beautiful Snake River and its blue ribbon trout fishing.
