Western Libraries to Host ‘Women in Fly Fishing’ July 8

Experienced fly fisher Molly Semenik will speak about women in fly fishing on Wednesday, July 8 at 3 p.m. at Western Libraries Special Collections area, Wilson Library 6th floor, on the Western Washiongton University campus.

The event is free and open to the public.

Semenik began fly fishing when her father gave her his Orvis Bamboo fly rod at age 14. She is a member of the International Federation of Fly Fishers (IFFF) Board of Governors and a certified Master Casting Instructor (MCI) who annually teaches over 400 students through schools, shops, clubs, and shows.

Her business, “Tie the Knot Fly Fishing,” specializes in teaching current techniques and philosophies around the sport of fly fishing to men and women of all ages. She and her husband live in Livingston, Montana, surrounded by two mountain ranges with the longest of the nation’s free flowing rivers – the Yellowstone – cutting through the valley floor.

This event is sponsored by Western Libraries Heritage Resources. For more information, contact Special Collection Manager Tamara Belts at (360) 650 – 3193 or at Tamara.Belts@wwu.edu.
