Like ballet, fly-fishing requires grace, impeccable timing, and the ability to catch a beauty in midsauté. Partake in true river dancing with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a two-hour fly-fishing lesson plus an hour in the water with an instructor at RiverGirl Fishing Company in Todd (a $75 value). Groupon holders participating in the fly-fishing lesson must purchase a fishing license ($5–$20) at RiverGirl Fishing Company.

RiverGirl Fishing Company transforms the south fork of the New River into an aquatic playground with tube rentals, fishing lessons, and more. Fly-fishing lessons acquaint anglers with rod, line, fly, and fish during two hours of personalized instruction followed by one hour of on-water practice. Lessons are taught by a trained fisheries biologist with more than 20 years of fly-fishing experience, which enables her to communicate telepathically with trout and verbally with ducks. Students are swaddled in all the necessary equipment (except for a fishing license) and taught casting, knot tying, and stream reading.

Headquartered inside a historic train depot close to the New River, RiverGirl Fishing seeks to instill a love of nature by providing outdoor aquatic adventures enhanced by first-mate lessons taught by its pet pig, Petunia.

RiverGirl Fishing Co.

When patrons exit RiverGirl Fishing Co's historic train depot for their aquatic kayak and tubing lessons, they're placed in the charge of the outfit's founder, Kelly McCoy. During tours of the New River, which runs north through Todd, she educates guests about the area's natural landscape. As a fisheries biologist, Kelly's passion helps visitors and locals enjoy the surrounding landscape with conservation-conscious activities.

Went on an EcoKayak trip today! It was a great day on the water!! Our guide was fantastic! She was very personal, informative, helpful, and happy! She explained the The New River and how it flows, the health of the river, how to tell if water is healthy, the animals and birds that need the river, and the geological formations in the water! River Girl provided a great lunch half way thru the trip! Thank you for a great 3 hour tour! We will be back for another adventure!
