Pisgah Chapter of Trout Unlimited offers fly-fishing school April 28

Published 10:21 am Thursday, April 12, 2012

The Pisgah Chapter of Trout Unlimited (PCTU) will hold its annual fly-fishing school on Saturday, April 28 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. at Harmon Field in Tryon.
Students will receive not only a full day of practical instruction from experienced anglers, covering the basics of fly fishing including equipment, casting, line management and stream tactics. They will also get a half-day session of “hands on” learning on one of the area’s trout-rich rivers or streams. The combination of the classroom instruction and on-the-water guided practice makes this one of the most unique and economical fly-fishing schools available in the area.
The cost of the school includes lunch, and equipment for the class will also be provided.
For more information or to register for the school, please visit the PCTU website at www.pisgahchaptertu.org. Class size is limited, and early registration is recommended.
All proceeds from the school help support Trout Unlimited ‘s educational and environmental programs, dedicated to the conservation, protection and restoration of coldwater fisheries and their watersheds in the Western North Carolina region.
The PCTU chapter meets on the second Thursday of the month at the Pardee Health Education Center, Blue Ridge Mall.
