Time to get those lines wet, via the Rumble in the Rhododendron in Cherokee coming up Oct. 21-23. The cost is $225 per fly-fishing team.

“Fips Mouche” rules for two-person teams apply. Additionally, there will be a separate casting competition. Non-competitors can enter the casting competition for $25 per attempt.

The tournament is limited to 30 teams, with 15 teams competing on Saturday morning and 15 on Saturday afternoon. The top seven from each session move on to Sunday morning. The top seven fish that afternoon for $10,000 in cash.

The Cherokee Chamber of Commerce in association with the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians Fish and Wildlife Department is presenting the event, with assistance from the North Carolina Fly Fishing Team.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    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.
