Tuckasegee River North Carolina Float Trip Raffles

We will be raffling off 2 full-day guided fly fishing float trips (a $400.00 value & includes lunch & beverages) donated to the Club by Jason from Hookers Fly Shop out of Sylva, NC. Tickets are $5.00 each. We will begin selling the tickets September 4, 2019 and will draw the winners at the March 18, 2020 evening meeting. The winners will then contact Jason and book their dates in April or May.

The Tuckasegee, known as the “Tuck,” originates around Cashiers and runs through Sylva, Dillsboro and Bryson City on its way to Fontana Lake. The river is dotted with stone fishing weirs built by Native Americans; this practice may have preceded the Cherokee in the area. The weirs are most easily viewed when water levels are low.

A float trip on the Tuck is an exhilarating way to experience fly fishing in the Southern Appalachians. The river has areas that are as wide as many western rivers, offering plenty of room for back casting. The popular Delayed Harvest section is approximately five miles long and located between the small towns of Dillsboro and Sylvia North Carolina. It is heavily stocked by the state with brown, rainbow and brook trout.

June, July & August 2019 Presidents Message

AUGUST: Well, it’s August and I feel like the summer is flying by. Football season is just around the corner and I for one can’t wait! I just returned from 10 days on the beach in Siesta Key. As I mentioned in last month’s message, I had a couple of trips planned. My Colorado trip was awesome. Spent 4 days camping on the Conejos River and fished a couple of different stretches. Nothing but dry fly action! We were able to land several rainbows in the 20”- 22” range. I’ll be heading that way again next summer.

A Letter From Lefty

I received this letter via email yesterday from a blog I subscribe to and thought I would share this with you all. I had the opportunity to meet Lefty at the Renzetti Expo in 2015. This was truly one of the highlights of my fly fishing career! Certainly a legendary "giant in our sport" not to mention a really great guy!

 To my friends,

I was 92 in January and had a carotid artery operation. During testing the hospital determined my heart was only pumping 35% and must limit my physical activities followed by a rest. The industry was extremely helpful and last season was able to attend the shows, clinics, etc.

Several weeks ago, I realized I was developing ...

November 2015 Presidents Message

“Do you keep them?” Invariably, that is the question I’m asked when I tell people that I fly-fish. “No, I like to practice catch and release” is my usual response. With a puzzled look on their face, the follow up question…here it comes…“Well, if you’re not going to keep and eat them, why...
