Carolina Fly Fishing Club

2017 Trips and Outings 

By: Steve Patterson - Director of Trips & Outings

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 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 6 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. Dates and registrations on the events calendar will be updated as we finalize the trips.
