Hosted at nearby waterways such as the Watauga River or French Broad River, Asheville Anglers' two-hour fly-fishing lessons pair an expert angler with 4–10 sure-handed students. A friendly pole pioneer acquaints students with wader wearing, rod rigging, fly selection, and how to tie the appropriate knot for bow ties worn while fishing. Pupils then tote the provided gear and tackle, including hand-tied flies, and practice casting to gain an understanding of fundamental technique. An entomology lesson sheds light on various key terms, after which groups head into the water for guided practice in the art of fly fishing. Instructors provide cool refreshments for all, but budding line slingers should bring their own sunglasses, sunscreen, and canned story about the fish or gal that got away.
