Monthly Fly Tying Sessions

Starting Jan. 20,  to May 19, 2015

We will have a series of five tying classes that will be divided into separate groups. One for new fly tyers and one for more experienced tyers. We are limiting the number of folks to 10, and are asking for $15.00 for the entire series.  You need to sign up on the events calendar in Jan. for the series and you will be reminded of each of the sessions in the following months.  

The tying lessons will be held on the second Tuesday  of each month through May, 2015.  We will be meeting at the Grace Covenant Church in Cornelius in the Fireside Room, starting at 6:30 to 9:00 PM.

We have the tools and tying materials for the sessions but you are welcome to bring your own. The instructors for this year will be Dave MacBurnie and Gary Jones, plus we will have several experienced tyers to assist with the class.

Outings and Trips 2015
By: Rick Meeks - Director of Trips

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

ABOUT US >>

Life is too short to not enjoy the 70%
of earth that is water.

Guiding is not a first career for us. However, we always pursued fly fishing adventures deep into the mountains of Western North Carolina, Tennessee, North Georgia, and The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Out of love for Western North Carolina and plentiful fly fishing opportunities, we both moved our families to the high country west of Asheville near Bryson City, NC.

Living and fishing in Western North Carolina, we are close to some of the best fly fishing in the southeast. With towns like Bryson City, Cherokee, Sylva, and Waynesville to enjoy after a long day on the water, there could not be a better place to live and fish.

Never ones to limit our skills and fishing to Western North Carolina, we are also experienced in salt water fly fishing and spinning rod as well. Seeking tail walking tarpon in the keys to bountiful tropical fish in Belize, we are always seeking out a new adventure.

We are excited about what the future holds for Tuckaseegee Fly Shop and our families, who have been rock solid supporters. We are not the average fly fishing guides who are just taking clients out on another routine fly fishing trip. We want to help you advance your knowledge, skills, and overall experience in the sport of fly fishing, and while we are at it, have a blast!

Wednesday Dec. 10, 2014

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.
