Ladies In The LowCountry
Fly Fishing for Redfish
Beaufort, South Carolina
April 4-8, 2016
Molly Semenik, owner of Tie The Knot Fly Fishing, will be joining Renee Mathai and Bay Street Outfitters www.baystreetoutfitters.com for a women’s fly fishing adventure in the LowCountry of South Carolina!
Historic downtown Beaufort, SC is our home base. Beaufort is located in the middle of 25% of the entire United States east coast marshland water. Visit www.beaufortsc.org. Renee has designed more than a fly fishing adventure. This trip also includes a carriage ride through downtown and a presentation of the ecology of the LowCountry. Everything about this trip will truly encompass the beauty and character of Beaufort. In keeping with past adventures, get ready for plenty of fishing-6 hours a day for three days! Our quest: sight fishing for Redfish. We may have a chance at sea trout as well. Each day, two hours have been set aside for casting instruction.
Molly has been fly fishing most of her life starting in Michigan, teaching in Utah, guiding in Montana and now residing in Birch Bay, Washington. She first began providing women’s fly fishing adventure travel in 2001. Her destinations are mostly based in Montana, but this year, with Renee’s support, it was time to branch out into waters that are unique and new for many of her clients who live throughout the United States. Tie The Knot is nearing 300 women/clients through Molly’s adventure travel excursions.
On the home front, Molly continues to stay current with her Master Certified Casting Instructor certification. She is on the International Federation of Fly Fishers (IFFF) casting board of Governors and the IFFF Board of Directors. She has a new book out titled "25 Best Off-The-Beaten-Path Montana Fly Fishing Streams by Stonefly Press. She is busy learning the ways of the Salmon and Steelhead in the PNW and will again be traveling back to Montana twice in 2016.
As with all of Molly’s past trips, this trip will be held to the same standards: Beautiful location, wonderful and unique lodging, professional and fun guides (Orvis endorsed) and time set aside for Molly to provide casting instruction. Bay Street Outfitters guides are also excellent instructors and will continue with the casting instruction while fishing.
*This trip is designed for the intermediate fly fisher. Casting a distance of 40-50 feet in many cases with wind. The double haul is not mandatory, but is certainly an added benefit.
