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.

This Must Be the Place

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
