The 2018 Pisgah TU Flyfishing School

SIgn up today for the 2018 Pisgah TU flyfishing school, scheduled for April 28, 2018 at Harmon Field in Tryon, NC.  The school is offered to beginning anglers and to those who’d like to learn more about the basics of the sport of flyfishing.

You’ll receive a full day of instruction in a wide range of essential knowledge and skills including equipment selection, line systems, casting and line management, fly selection and stream tactics, stream etiquette, ethics and safety. You’ll receive an original handbook, written and compiled by Pisgah TU members over the years of teaching the class to take home with you. It’s an invaluable guide to getting started, and a reference tool for everything from basic knots to advanced on-the-water tactics.

Upon completion of the school, you’ll be teamed up with an angling mentor from the chapter for a half-day on the water practicing what you’ve learned as you fish together for trout.

The only requirements for participation are a willingness to learn and weather-appropriate clothing; although you may want to bring a pair of shoes or boots to wade in if you’d like to get in the water, and your own rod and reel if you have them.

Sign up today, because classes fill quickly and this opportunity comes around only once a year!
