Take Me To Your Leader

Jan 18

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission always has an interesting lineup of programs and classes at its Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education near Brevard. For the DIY fly-fishing crowd, Commission staff will offer a fishing leader building class on Saturday, Jan. 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Some spaces remain.

Fishing leaders are a shorter length of fishing line, which attaches to a heavier, main fishing line. Anglers then tie flies to tippet, attached to the leaders, which are intended to be virtually invisible to fish, making the fish less wary about striking the flies.

Participants will construct both furled leaders and hand-tied leaders for fly fishing. All materials will be provided. The program is free and open to ages 12 and older. Space is limited and pre-registration is required by calling 828-877-4423 or signing up online.
