Pisgah Fly Masters readies for annual competition

Written by 

The fourth annual Pisgah Fly Masters fly-fishing tournament, sponsored by the Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education and Davidson River Outfitters, is scheduled for March 19 and 20 in Transylvania County.

A casting competition on March 19 will test anglers skills in accuracy and distance. Winners will go on to the catch-and-release trout fishing finals, to be held March 20 on the Davidson River.

Anglers compete in one of three categories: fisherman, professional and youth under 16.

All money raised will go toward programming at the Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education, a N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission site with exhibits and programs on mountain ecology located on U.S. 276 between Waynesville and Brevard.

Entry fees are $30 for youth (ages 10 to 15); $50 for anglers 16 and older; and $50 for the professional level. Entrants registered by March 3 will receive a 2011 tournament T-shirt. For rules, a prize list and entry forms, go to www.ncwildlife.org/pisgahflymasters. 828.877.4423.
