From Our Committees

Women's Initiative

Thank you to everyone who came out to the screening of A Steelhead Quest. We raised a sizable amount of money thanks to your raffle and beer purchases that night. We hope to use this to fund a local conservation project in the very near future. If you have a project that you are passionate about, please let us know!

Our next event is February 18th at 6pm and Brandywine Kitchen, and I have personally been looking forward to this event for a very long time!

DRYFT is a local company that makes high quality waders, jackets, and other fishing gear. For the first time in the company's history, they have designed a line of women's waders. DRYFT wants feedback from womxn so that they can improve the product if necessary and accommodate as many sizes and body types as possible. 

We are womxn, and we have feedback! So please join us for a fun night of good food, great beer, and some wader fitting. Just bring your body and your opinions :)
This event is "geared" towards womxn, but no one is excluded. 

For more updates on what we're up to, head over to the North Sound Women on the Fly Facebook page. You can also email us any time at We'll get you on the email list or answer any questions you have about getting involved.
