January and February Fly-fishing Clinic


January and February Fly-fishing Clinic

Ultralight fly fishing is a great way to catch fish, but many people do not know where to begin. Not only do people not know about casting, rigging or knot tying, they simply do not know where the best areas are to fish. This January and February, however, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission is putting on a plethora of events to help the public learn how to fly fish. The event is aimed towards those that either want a refresher or that have never went fly fishing before. While the pros will not learn much at the clinic, it is going to be a great clinic that costs a mere $5.

Two ponds are being filled with 1,000 catchable-sized trout in anticipation for the clinic. Brook, rainbow and brown trout have already been stocked on December 20th. If you want to go to the clinic, it is best to pre-register so that you know you will have a spot available. There are only 40 spots open for each clinic and they fill up fast.

The event will take place in Fayetteville and anyone interested will be able to call the Pechmann Center for more information. Currently, three clinics are scheduled occurring on:

  • January 18th
  • February 1
  • February 15th

All clinics will begin at 9 am and end at 3 pm. Those that attend the event will be catching fish using the proper technique and equipment. Loaner rods and bait will be available so that participants do not need to worry about purchasing their own gear for the event. This is a great opportunity for anyone near the Fayetteville area to learn how to fly fish. Among the basics that will be taught are:

  • Casting
  • Rigging
  • Knot tying

Anyone that is interested in going to the clinic can call the Pechmann Center at 910 868-5003.
