Mar 18: Rabunite 101

February 8, 2017

Our annual beginning fly fishing course for ages 18 and over will be held again this year. Contact Charlie Breithaupt at 706-782-6954 for more information.

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 (male and female 16 years and older).

The seminar will cover equipment, casting, knots and entomology (the bugs we imitate for fish to eat).

Instructors include Federation of Flyfishermen Certified Instructors and other experts for a hands-on learning experience that will be helpful and fun.

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.
