Beginner Trip on the Tuckasegee July 1st, 2011

Posted by on July 1, 2011

Today I guided Steve and Jan B. from Bryson City, NC.  It was their first time fly fishing for trout and they did great.  We started the morning off with some casting instruction at Bridge Park here in Sylva.  Steve and Jan both picked up the fundamentals of casting very quickly.  We then went out to Scott’s Creek to cover trout holding areas, river structure, how to read the water, etc.  For the second half of the trip we went to  the hatchery supported section on the Tuckasegee located on Old Cullowhee Rd. just off of Hwy 107.  It wasn’t long until Steve was hooked up with his first trout on the fly.  A beautiful wild rainbow around 10 inches long taken on a #14 Red B.H. Pheasant Tail.  His next trout was even more impressive, a 13 inch wild bow that was taken on a #8 Hot Head Brown Marvin.  What a perfect day on the water with some great memories that will not soon be forgotten.
