Expert fly fisherman to offer rod, casting advice

The Plateau Fly Fishing Club will host a free casting clinic with the senior guide for Davidson River Outfitters at 7 p.m. Monday, July 11, in Cashiers.

The clinic will feature casting techniques for floating and sinking lines and cover characteristics of full flex, mid-flex and fast action rods. The clinic will offer all flyfishers an opportunity to determine the best rod for specific streams and species. Anyone is welcome to bring a rod for Parrott to analyze.
