Learn fly-fishing basics from an expert

Fly fishermen are passing on their craft with a series of how-to classes in Sylva.

Members of the Tuckaseigee Chapter of Trout Unlimited will hold basic fly fishing courses from 6 to 8 p.m. the first and second Thursdays of each month at St. John’s Episcopal Church. They will cover 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.

$50 donation to cover expenses and support a youth fishing camp in the summer.
