Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Fund Raiser
PHWFF will be selling raffle tickets at the Monday 8/31 TFF meeting. The raffle is for a beautiful new 8' 4wt fly rod built by Mr. Jim Burchette and generously donated by Mr. Troy Branham. Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $25 with 100% of the proceeds going to support the local program. As always I encourage payment by check.
The drawing for the rod will be held at the end of the meeting on the 31st.
This month's speaker will feature Scott Enloe and his son Hunter. This presentation titled "Don't go fishing, Go catching" promises to talk about the latest fly fishing techniques and leaders, tippet, rod length, proper drifts, fly selection, proper rig tying, reading water and how to find fish fast in water. Scott is the owner of River's Edge Outfitters in Cherokee and Spruce Pine, NC.
Scott and his son both compete with the North Carolina fly fishing team and have won 4 of the last 5 years. Scott also fishes on the USA National fly fishing team which finished 2nd in the world championship in Bosnia this past June.
Don't forget the monthly raffle with great prizes as well!
Clearwater Lake is a 5 acre spring-fed "pay to fish" impoundment in the southern portion of Orange County just outside of Chapel Hill, NC. It is situated on a piece of property, known as Camp Clearwater, currently owned by the Chapel Hill-Carrboro /Capital CityYMCAs. Clearwater is stocked with Brook Trout and Rainbow Trout, most of them very large. Fishing is limited to eight people per day and is strictly catch and release. Fishing is available by prepaid advance reservation only.
TFF provides this trout fishing opportunity as a service to its’ members. TFF does not manage or receive funds from Clearwater Lake. By reserving and pre-paying for a large block of dates, we receive a substantial per slot price discount. TFF has reserved 15 days for the 2015-16 season (October 2015 – March 2016). Dates have not yet been assigned but are generally a Saturday or Sunday. There are eight (8) slots available for each date. A "slot" is defined as one person for one day, whether fishing or not. Everyone on the Camp Clearwater grounds must have purchased a slot, including children. Walk-ons are not permitted.
Slots for the 2015-2016 season will be sold in pairs; $90 per two slots( same cost as last year!). All slots must be purchased and paid for by September 7, 2015. Slots will be available for sale beginning with this announcement through the August 31 TFF meeting by contacting Jim Cappy. If you wish to make payment by mail, send a check payable to Triangle Fly Fishers to:
