Annual CFFC Fall Nantahala Trip
Oct. 30 to Nov. 2, 2014
OK CFFC Members, the event everyone has been waiting for will soon be upon us. The annual CFFC Fall Nantahala Trip.
This year the club will be staying at the Euchella House. The Euchella house is right off the main highway as you enter Nantahala Village. It is 5 minutes from the Nantahala Outdoor Center, 15 minutes from the Delayed Harvest Section of the Nantahala, and 30 minutes from the Tuckaseegee River at Dillsborro. The dates are Thursday Oct 30th through Sunday Nov 2nd. that's 3 nights and 4 days in some of the best fishing country North Carolina has to offer.
The Cabin will accommodate 15 comfortably depending on the number of couples/singles we have. As always bunk assignments will be assigned, with couples getting priority on the private rooms. If demand is strong, there is another house 150 feet away that will accommodate another 10 folks. The house is located about 200 yards from Fontana Lake.
Cost for the entire weekend is a mere $125 per person. This includes your lodging, and Meals for Friday night, Saturday breakfast, Saturday night, and Sunday continental breakfast.
We are blessed to have some pretty amazing cooks in our membership which means we always eat pretty well.
For those who have not been before, Volunteers for cooks and cleanup are always asked for, if you do not volunteer, you will be drafted :>).
If you are new to fly fishing, or want to hone your skills on different types of water. This is the trip and the best time to learn. There are usually veteran fly fisherman who attend.
They know the area streams well, which flies to use, and what techniques will work. An Added bonus is the fall leaves should be just winding down so the scenery should be magnificent too!
Sign up is on a first come first serve basis. YOU MUST PAY FOR THE TRIP WHEN YOU SIGN UP!! No Exceptions, a spot will not be held simply by registering. Your registration will be deleted.
We have to do this because of the costs involved. Especially if we rent the second house and then participants decide they don't want to attend. I hope everyone understands.
If anyone has questions about the trip, fishing the area, or accommodations feel free to email me and I will answer as best I can. If anyone has special dietary requirements, or medical conditions, please again email me in confidence and arrangements can be made.
Looking forward to seeing everyone. This is going to be a great trip.
