Anglers offer fly-fishing class for beginners

Written by 

Fly-fishing wannabes can learn the basics and try their hand at casting a line this winter thanks to an ongoing series of beginner fly-fishing classes offer by the Tuckaseigee Chapter of Trout Unlimited in Sylva.

The program includes two classroom sessions held the first and second Thursday of the month from 6 to 8 p.m., plus a half-day outing on a local stream. The classes cover all the basics of mountain trout fishing and are taught by experienced local trout fishermen who are members of Tuck chapter of Trout Unlimited.

The series will be repeated the months of February, March and April. The class is held at St. John’s Episcopal Church on Jackson Street downtown. A donation of $50 covers expenses and support a youth fly fishing camp in the summer. No experience necessary.
