Our August 16th, 2022 VFW Hall Dinner Meeting with be Molly Semenik who will speak about accurate casting.
Molly Semenik was born and raised in Michigan. She fondly recalls the day when, at the age of fourteen, her father presented her with his prized Orvis bamboo rod. When Semenik moved to Utah in 1979, she brought the rod along and spent the next several years fly fishing in western fresh water.
She has been teaching since the 1980’s which has taken her all over the world; in both warm and cold waters, in private settings with one or more students, and in demonstrations at national fly fishing shows.
Molly became a Federation of Fly Fishers master fly-casting instructor in 2006, cofounded the Yellowstone Fly Fishing School with Matt Wilhelm in 2006, and two years later became a certified outfitter in the state of Montana. She was elected to the Casting Board of Governors of the Federation of Fly Fishers in 2010. She is FFI single handed Certified Casting and Master Casting and Two-Handed Casting Instructor.
She specializes in introducing women to the sport in a fun, professional, and encouraging way; she believes that “when a woman can tie her own knot, she has started down the path of independence.”
Molly lives in Blaine, Washington.
A President’s Dinner Choice, for $25, will be served with a Bartender serving beer and wine drinks for a $5 donation.
