Ever wanted to try your hand at fly-fishing for trout but never learned the in’s and out’s of it? 

Ever wonder why some people seem to get so “hooked” on it?

Now’s your chance! The Rabun Chapter of Trout Unlimited is planning a half-day fly-fishing seminar for adults. More info here. 

 

Wildcat Creek Road Closed

A popular stocked trout stream in Rabun County, Wildcat Creek, will have its trout stockings delayed for several weeks this spring due to the closure of Wildcat Creek Road. The US Forest Service has closed this road due to a landslide that occurred this winter. Details here.

Rod Raffle!

Once again, Mack Martin of the Atlanta Fly Fishing School has graciously donated a custom-built fly rod and reel to the Rabun Chapter to be used for fund raising.
