Carolina Fly Fishing Club
Welcome to the Carolina Fly Fishing Club!
FEBRUARY MONTHLY MEETING
February 8, 2023
Concord Mills Mall
Speaker starts at 6:45PM
(Basspro closes at 8PM)
Heath is the owner of PISGAH OUTDOORS. His approach to guiding is to meet the customer where they are at in their fishing, and leave them with a little more at the end of the day. Heath fishes by feel, but teaches through method. For Heath, fly fishing is a careful blend of science and art in which the angler first learns the why and the how, then through practice, gains the ability to make a difficult sport look easy.
Heath is more than happy to spend the day with a beginner, or even someone who wants to just try fly fishing; but his end goal is to instill a passion and to develop a relationship that will last for many years to come.
Becoming accomplished at the sport of fly fishing takes a long time and lots of practice. Heath is dedicated to taking that journey with you, and to travel that road as far as you may take it.
While he runs the operation, handles the bookings, manages the website, signs the paperwork, and herds the cats; his first passion is guiding. Thanks to no cell service in the areas he prefers to work, he gets a chance every trip to let those less important duties fade away and focus on your day, your enjoyment, your growth as an angler, and his favorite part of the job.

YOU HOOKED YOURSELF WITH A FLY!
Many times a fishing buddy or you will put a hook in a body part. Do you need to quit fishing? Probably not. There are several good YouTube videos out there.
Word of advice, medical professionals caution, never push the hook farther through the body part to cut the barb off. there is a significant risk of tissue damage.
Bear in mind, we are not physicians and have never even played a physician, that's why we fly fish. When in doubt seek competent medical advice.
