Fall Season Fly Fishing

Western North Carolina is one of the most beautiful places to enjoy the changing leaves of the Fall season. In addition to beautiful views, the local water features of creeks and rivers offer even greater opportunities to fly fish.

Fly fishing, in particular, requires patience and rhythm. In contrast to the typical bait used with a rod and reel of regular fishing, fly fishing bait is a work of art— not a live worm. Thus, the first time fly fishing can be frustrating (the risk of catching trees is much higher than catching fish), but the important part is to master the stroke and flow of being on the water. Fishing, itself, is about enjoying the legacy of the surrounding nature.

Perseverance!
Practicing the rhythm of the stroke

Although it might take some practice, fly fishing is a great medium to enjoy the legacy of water. One truly appreciates each ripple, each life form, and each moment a little more with a fishing pole in their hand.
