2018 Fly Fishing School
April 28, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Pisgah TU will hold its annual flyfishing school again this year at Harmon Field in Tryon, North Carolina on Saturday, April 28, 2018. The school is offered to beginning anglers and to those who’d like to learn more about the basics of the sport of flyfishing.
Attendees will 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.
Upon completion of the school, the attendees will be paired with angling “mentors” from the
chapter for a half-day on the water practicing what they’ve learned as they fish together for
trout in one of our regional, trout-rich streams. This unique one-on-one experience gives the
student a chance to ask questions, refresh their knowledge, translate the classroom learning to
real hands-on experience and enjoy time on the water with a seasoned fishing partner.
Students also receive a digital version of the course handbook to keep for further exploration and future reference. Lunch is provided.
The only requirements for participation are a willingness to learn and weather-appropriate
clothing; although students may opt to bring a pair of shoes or boots to wade in if they’d like to get in the water, and their own rods and reels if they have them.
Pisgah TU’s Flyfishing School is run by chapter members and volunteers. Cost for the class is $150 for adults, $100 for students. All proceeds go to fund Pisgah TU’s ongoing conservation efforts in western North Carolina. ��For more information, visit https://pisgahTU.org/ffSchool or contact school coordinator Carole Deddy (firstname.lastname@example.org).
