Instructors: Richard Griggs, Dick Handshaw
This class will be taught in the Lake Norman State Park, at the upper end of the park cove. Bring a boat and life jacket if you have one. We will have a canoe or kayak for you to try if you don’t. If you want to spend extra time on the water there are canoes and kayaks for rent there. Once you have the basics, we may offer a moving water course on the New River if there is enough interest. (Time and date to be determined by the group.)
Canoeing and Kayaking for Fly Fishing – There times when it is easier and more feasible to fly fish from a boat than it is to wade. Fishing from a boat is also fun and pretty relaxing, too. But, getting into a canoe or kayak for the first time might seem a little unstable and difficult, especially on moving water, like a river sprinkled with rocks. Fishing from a canoe or kayak is much easier once you know a few basic strokes, how to read water, how to lean on your paddle for stability and a few basic self-rescue techniques just in case you do wind up in the water.
Club Outings: Due to CFFC liabilities anyone attending a club outing must be up to date with their CFFC and IFFF memberships. Guests or lapsed members must sign a release form at the gathering.

Day trip, fishing on the Mitchell River
The Mitchell River is upstream from Kapps Mill dam. The Mitchell has plenty of nice runs and deep holes holding stocked and holdover rainbows and browns mostly in the 9"- 15" range. The stream has good wade access; so, anglers regularly net good numbers of nice trout in the Mitchell. The Mitchell is designated Delayed Harvest and fishes well March, April, May, October, November and December. Be certain to get here very early because it's very popular on weekends with local fly fishers and great for beginner fly anglers. The river is close by scenic wine making country surrounding Dobson, North Carolina home to Shelton Vineyards.
