Womens Flyfishing®

  • Alaskas premier flyfishing company for women
  • The Internets leading resource for women who fish with a fly rod

In business for 28 years, Womens Flyfishing® provides a safe and supportive environment where women can learn to fly fish with both heavy and light-weight fly rods and put their skills to work on the water. Based in Anchorage, we fish throughout the State for salmon, trout, char, grayling, and pike, and provide fly fishing gear, equipment and flies for all of our trips. We also offer fly tying classes so women can fish and catch with flies that they have actually tied.


Pacific Salmon Flies: New Ties and Old StandbysIn addition to owning and operating Womens Flyfishing® Pudge is the author of four books and a contributing editor for Fish Alaska Magazine. Her first book, Fly Fishing Women Explore Alaska, 2003 Epicenter Press received several awards, and her second book, River Girls: Fly Fishing for Young Women, 2006 Johnson Books, won the first-place gold award in the Benjamin Franklin Awards Sports and Outdoor Recreation Competition. Her third book, Fly Fishing for Alaskas Arctic Grayling: Sailfish of the North, 2009 Frank Amato Publications, is the first and only book ever written on this very special Alaskan sport fish, and has received acclaim in the US, the UK, and Europe. Her recently released book, Pacific Salmon Flies: New Ties & Old Standbys, 2012 Frank Amato Publications, reveals flies of her own design, as well as some salmon fishing classics. The book includes both fly tying and fly fishing techniques for each of the flies, and a chart matching the patterns with each of the five species of Pacific Salmon
