Learn to fly fish from seasoned anglers

Written by 

The Tuckaseigee Chapter of Trout Unlimited will conduct basic fly-fishing courses at St. John’s Episcopal Church on Jackson Street in Sylva through May.

The classroom sessions run the first and second Thursday of each month from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the church. These two sessions include the basics of mountain trout fishing, and will be followed with a half day on a local stream for those who decide to take up trout fishing and purchase the necessary equipment to fish.

Experienced fishermen will teach the classes. Participants will be asked to make a donation of $50 to St. John’s Church for expenses, and to help support Trout Unlimited in supporting youth attending fly fishing camp in the summer.

Adults who want to learn to fly-fish should be in reasonably good physical condition, and youth should be of an age that they can operate independently, or attend with a paying parent.

The course requires no previous experience in fishing and requires no equipment for the first two sessions.

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
