Patrick Weaver Fly Tying Demo and Tie Along

We are excited about adding a new education feature to our 2020 Picnic agenda.  Patrick Weaver, from the NC Wildlife Resource Commission, will be presenting a Fly Tying Demo on how to tie flies that he discussed in his presentation, "Entomology for Anglers--A Practical Guide to Insects and Fly Patterns", tailored specifically to North Carolina Trout Waters.

Attendees to this session will be able to tie along with Patrick as he presents each pattern.  Attendees should be experienced tiers.  THIS IS NOT A BEGINNERS HOW TO CLASS.  Click here for More

The Carolina Fly Fishing Club is planning a banner year of fishing outings for our members. The outings will be planned to appeal to all levels of fly fishers, from beginners to advanced. We will have both one day and multi-day outings, cold and warm water fishing, free and low cost events. These outings will provide opportunities to learn new water and benefit from experience and mentoring from other members and, as always, a great opportunity to meet, socialize and fish with fellow CFFC fly fishers.

The schedule of events will become expanded and with firmer dates as we advance in the early months of the year. Following are currently planned, committed outings that you can put on your calendars now and be ready to go. Some events will have maximum attendees and some will require advance payment so be sure to check the events calendar frequently and get registered early for those events that you want to attend. We have 5 outings planned for the South Holston River and its trophy sized wild trout and other nearby waters. These are very popular outings and early registration will assure attendance.

March 7, 2015 Wilson Creek Day Trip

Please register if you will attend!

 OK CFFC Members, the 2015 Delayed Harvest season is starting up. During the first week of March there should be some fresh, hungry trout stocked in our local Delayed Harvest streams.

For those of you new to North Carolina Trout Seasons, Delayed Harvest is the NC state's modified Catch and Release program. March, April and May, the Department of Wildlife Resources stocks selected streams ( those marked with Black and White diamond shaped signs) for Catch and Release, single hook, artificial lure only fishing. In short all fish caught must be released. 

On Saturday, March 7th, the CFFC will host an outing to Wilson Creek. Wilson Creek is located about 20 miles outside of Morganton. For those of you not familiar with the area, take I- 40 West, towards Asheville. Take exit 100, turn right and go about 4 miles. The road will dead end into state route 181. Turn left, go about 10 miles and make a right onto Brown Mountain Beach Road. There is a white church with steeple very visible at this turn. Follow Brown Mountain Beach road about 5 miles, and look for the signs for Wilson Creek, Brown Mountain Beach Resort and Mortimer Campground. You will cross a bridge over Wilson creek just before THE LEFT TURN onto the road to Brown Mountain Beach. You can also go to Google Maps and search for Mortimer NC and it will show you directions. 

Brown Mountain Beach Road is a combination of paved and dirt (very navigable) road. For those who would like to meet up first for tips, pointers, etc., we will meet at the parking lot just past and to the right of the THIRD BRIDGE that you will cross over. It will be a fairly long drive. At this point, Wilson Creek moves from your right side to your left side and the entry to the parking lot is just a few feet past the bridge. Just prior to this bridge, you will see an old abandoned mill on your right and then round a large curve. The bridge will come up soon thereafter. For more detailed directions, please see the link provided on the registration page. We will meet in the parking lot at 8:30 AM.

Please bring your own lunch, beverages, etc. We will meet at the picnic shelter at the Forest Service’s Mortimer campground about 12:00. March weather can be unpredictable so please bring flexible clothing.F 

Club Outings: Due to CFFC liabilities anyone attending a club outing must be up to date with their CFFC and IFFF memberships. Guests or lapsed members must sign a release form at the gathering.  

Ok Fellow CFFC members. It is that time of year again. Tired of the ice and snow?  Well here is something for you to look forward to. It is time to sign up for the annual spring Nantahala Trip. This year we are changing things up a little. The club has rented a large group cabin right on Nantahala Lake. The cabin site is located in a private cove with direct access to the lake and even has a dock. The delayed harvest stretch of the Nantahala is straight down the mountain about 8 miles away.  The cabin has beds for 11 and will accommodate up to 5 couples.  There is also plenty of room for a few folks to bring a cot if need be. 

The dates are April 9 -April 12. Cost is $140 per person for the weekend.  After we see how many sign ups there are we will discuss food options. Bring your toon, kayak, canoe and yourself.

See the link below for more information. As per normal club policy bunk and work assignments along with directions to the cabin will be posted closer to the trip date.

WOMEN ON THE FLY

<<About WOTF>>

Carolina Fly Fishing Club is proud to be a sponsor of a group called “Women On The Fly”.

This group was organized by one of our members, Linda Hickle,  who has encouraged membership and participation through the social media site Meetup.com. Additionally, two ladies from their Leadership Team, Kathy and Stephanie, are on our Board of Directors as well.  Their objective is to unite women interested in learning about the great opportunities to get into fly fishing in our area. Women of all skill levels  and backgrounds are welcome. Women On The Fly has a single gender mission and welcomes everyone interested in promoting women in the sport of fly fishing and helping the ladies along the way. Linda along with other Event Hosts invite their membership to attend the CFFC events, other local fly fishing venues, as well as get togethers just for their club.


Meeting at REI, Northlake Mall, CLT.

6:30 PM Meet and Greet  7:00 PM to 8:30 PM Club Meeting.      

The December CFFC meeting will be a casual get together and a swap meet.  A good chance to bring some of your stuff that you don't need and be able to sell or swap for other items. From what I am seeing there should be a lot of good stuff that will be put out. So load up all of your stuff and come on over for an enjoyable evening. 

Also this meeting will be the final chance to get one of the special raffle tickets for the two rods that we will be giving away this meeting. They will raffled separately and will make a couple of folks a nice Christmas present. 

Look forward to seeing you there. 

Monthly Fly Tying Sessions
