CFFC Annual Picnic and Fun Day

Casting Clinic & Casting Competition

Casting Clinic:
The following two casting classes will be taught using grass and water where most appropriate.  You will have both small group and one on one instruction to make sure you leave with a new set of casting skills. If you don’t have your own fly rod, let us know on the registration form and we will bring one for you.

Time: 10:00 am
Fly Casting for Beginners – Being able to cast accurately with a fly rod is one of the most important skills for a fly fisherman. It’s also not nearly as hard as people might have you believe. Come learn the basics of how the fly rod works, develop a good roll cast for those tight situations often found on North Carolina streams and learn to accurately deliver your fly where you think it needs to go.

Fly Casting for Intermediates – Once you have mastered the basics and caught a few fish, you will discover there are some things you would still like to be able to do with a fly rod, but don’t quite know how to master. Aerial mends are very useful to fool spooky fish. You can bend your fly line to mend your line before it hits the water to get a perfect drift without spooking any fish. Maybe you have trouble getting under those low hanging branches or around that rock or stump between you and the fish. You need a curve cast. There is even a special cast that is a favorite of Joe Humphreys that helps you get your fly all the way to the bottom in a hurry. Tell us what you need to do and we will find an instructor to help you do it.

Casting Competition:
Time: 2:00 pm
There will be a fun time at the end of the event to see who can cast the most accurately and longest distance.

Club Outings: Due to CFFC liabilities anyone attending a club outing must be up to date with their CFFC and FFI (Fly Fishing International) memberships. Guests or lapsed members must sign a release form at the gathering or you can link to the release form. You can print, fill it out and bring it with you to the outing. Release Form
