About Us

Welcome to the United Women on the Fly community!!  We strive to build a safe and inclusive community that educates, provides resources, encourages and connects anglers around the globe.  We look forward to continuing to build this amazing community of outdoor adventurers!!

Our three main focuses are: 1) Connect 2) Educate 3) Provide Resources

CONNECT  on our social media platforms.  We have over 3600 women in the closed United Women on the Fly Facebook Group that represent 20 countries.  This is a perfect platform to connect, ask questions, share fish tales/photos and share events, education and conversations.  Join the Closed Facebook Group.

EDUCATE – UWOTF Strives to offer or share quality education.

RESOURCES – The UWOTF Resource Page lists links to the most common searches for women fly fishing.  In addition to listing women groups/organizations in your area, you can also find women apparel companies.  Are you looking for education opportunities?  Do you want to find a Women Guide?  Perhaps you’re looking for women owned small businesses or want to know more about the current fly fishing initiatives?  This Women Fly Fishing Resource has been created for you!  If  you’d like to be added to the page, please email [email protected]

Meet Our Team


UWOTF was created by Heather Hodson in September 2016. After much success of founding Spokane Women on the Fly and becoming the Western US Women’s Ambassador for Trout Unlimited, Heather decided to continue to share her knowledge both on and off the water by creating the UWOTF community. To read more about Heather click here.

The UWOTF community is ever changing and we hope to have a central location where anyone can find everything you need. Do you want to be more connected with other like-minded anglers? Perhaps you travel and want to connect with fishing companions along the way? Maybe you don’t have any groups in your local area and want to get something started but don’t have a clue where to begin? Want to hire a women guide? How about supporting small and shopping local? UWOTF is here for you.  Check out our Resources Page.

There’s no club fees or association with any organizations. It’s simply a resource to unite women across the globe and make it easier to locate fly fishing education, women gatherings and events, information on gear, meet like-minded anglers, and find trips designed specifically for women. We’re also hear to help mentor with starting a new group in your local area. Everyone is welcomed, just no drama!

There are several other women groups, clubs and female organizations available. UWOTF is very supportive of them all. We’re more than happy to pass you along to the specific group website, social media accounts or give you a contact email address. If you can’t find a group in an specific area email us at [email protected] and we’ll try to get you connected.

Social Media – Rather than bringing each other down, let’s become united and support everyone. Social Media can be a very positive thing in creating a community. There’s so much more than just the fish! Tag us in your gatherings, events, classes and adventures on and off the water.  #unitedwomenonthefly @unitedwomenonthefly

We’re a media partner with Keepemwet Fishing and do our best to only share your photos of fish in the water, slightly above the water or dripping. We’d love to see more photos expressing the #keepfishwet lifestyle!  You can check out the most up to date science, principles & tips for proper fish handling for catch and release at https://www.keepemwet.org.
