Written by 

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.
