Have you ever wanted to learn something truly special for this area?

The Pisgah Chapter of Trout Unlimited is holding its annual Fly Fishing School on Saturday, April 29, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 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 our area.
