Carolina Fly Fishing Club
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.
