American Traveler is a noncredit program that offers enrichment-learning opportunities to various destinations throughout the United States. This summer, WKU Study Away will launch its first American Traveler program: Fly Fishing Montana.
The trip will take place July 18-23 in Missoula, Mont., where Norman Maclean’s A River Runs Through It and Other Stories comes to life. Adventurers will spend five days trout fishing on the beautiful rivers of the Missoula Valley and exploring the local culture. All anglers will receive personal instruction from a professional guide: one guide for every two travelers.
Groups and solo adventurers of all fishing abilities are welcome. Fly fishing workshops are available before the trip through WKU Continuing Education. WKU Department of Kinesiology, Recreation and Sport will also offer a 3-credit hour fly fishing course in May.
