Dame Juliana Anglers is Phoenix's first women's angling club. The Dame
Juliana Anglers is named after the First Lady of fly fishing, Dame Juliana
Berners, who, in 1496, authored what is known to be the first fishing
treatise, the Second Book of Albans.
The goal of
this informal group is to bring women anglers together to fish, socialize,
learn about other women's fly fishing groups in other areas, organize fly
fishing and fly tying classes and trips and have a generally enjoyable
time. As Dame Juliana stated in her treatise, angling is the best of all
sports because it is a "merry occupation, without care, anxiety or
Anglers is a club that promotes conservation, environmental issues,
habitat improvement, and catch & release.
DJA meets the 1st Tuesday of every month.
Our next meeting will be on:
Tuesday, April 4 at 6:30 PM at
Half Moon Sports Grill,
2121 East Highland Ave.
(East of 20th St., South of the Town & Country Mall)
free to drop in and join us! You don't have to know how to fly fish, just
have the enthusiasm. We are an informal group of women who get together
and talk about fly fishing and plan trips -- experience is not necessary
-- it's the enjoyment of the outdoors and fishing.
