The days may be getting shorter and chillier, but the fish are still biting! Show your sport some winter love at the Western North Carolina Fly Fishing Expo, this Friday and Saturday at the WNC Agricultural Center in Fletcher.
Returning to the Center for its 6th year running, the Fly Fishing Expo attracts more than 1,000 anglers from all over the Southeast for a weekend packed full of exhibitions, demonstrations, lessons, and talks with the pros.
Fishing experts – such as George Daniel, Blane Chocklett, and Jon Hooper – will be ready to up your game and give you the best new tips to improve your skills. Plus, Fly Tying and Casting Clinics alongside these big names will help you put your new knowledge to the test and get you water-ready. The Southeastern Council of the International Federation of Fly Fishers has even sponsored a 3,200 square-foot indoor casting pool, built specially for these clinics.
All your favorite manufacturers, shops, and organizations will also be at the Expo. Don’t miss the Flyman Fishing Co., Fishpond, Hatch Fly Reels, Carolina Mountain Sports, Rivers Edge Outfitters, Hunter Banks Company, and tons of other groups ready to gear you up right with good advice and big deals.
The 2014 WNC Fly Fishing Expo is bound to be a hit for the fishing community, so mark your calendars. No need to register – tickets will be available at the door for only $16 starting at 12 pm on Friday. Kids under 16 even get in free!
