Pisgah Fly Masters Emerging as Fly Fishing Competition
“Having the inaugural event under our belt helps,” said Emilie Johnson, “And I believe adding a youth category this year for anglers younger than 16 will enhance the competition and gain popularity.”
Hosted by the Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education, a free-to-the-public learning facility operated by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, the Pisgah Fly Masters challenges anglers’ casting skills off-stream, with finalists moving on to catch and release competition on the river.
Registration is open to the first 125 entrants through March 3, 2009 for $50, with a late registration available for $75 until March 21, space remaining. The event is sponsored by Davidson10:11:17 River Outfitters.
The Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education is located near Brevard, adjacent to the Bobby N. Setzer State Fish Hatchery. Aquatic ecosystems and cold water conservation are a large part of the exhibits and displays.
All proceeds from the tournament will go toward wildlife and aquatic education programs at the Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education.
