Women-only Cast and Blast set for Basalt
BASALT — To assist and encourage women to pursue hunting and fishing on their own, Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the National Rifle Association are partnering to offering a free, women-only Cast and Blast on Sunday.
For details, location and registration, contact the Glenwood Springs Colorado Parks and Wildlife office at 970-947-2920. Space is limited. A $20 refundable deposit is required upon registration.
The daylong event covers the basics of fly fishing, including knot-tying and casting, followed by an opportunity to implement techniques on the water. The shooting portion introduces participants to shotgun safety and shooting techniques, with practice with clay targets on a trap range. To participate in the Cast and Blast, a valid fishing license is required; however, a one-day license is acceptable.
As part of Moffat County High School’s Class of 2019 graduation ceremony, outgoing students took the opportunity to express their creativity, honor their past and look to the future atop their mortarboards.
