Chase Spicer Due to a scheduling conflict with the Cherokee Championship Series we have collectively decided to reschedule our event until Saturday April 25th and move our registration date up to March 14th with payment being due on April 11th. Sorry for the inconvenience. I look forward to seeing everyone in April!

Chase Spicer Good Mourning All, we have come to the very difficult decision to cancel our tournament that was scheduled for April 25 in Cherokee N.C. As of right now the reservation is closed to members only and North Carolina is under a stay at home order. This prohibits any gatherings of more than 10 people also. We want to abide by the rules set in place by the Governor and the CDC to try and keep all participants and volunteers safe.
If anyone has already paid, we will make sure to refund your money via PayPal.
As of now we have not made any plans to reschedule but we may try to hold the event sometime this fall, but we will keep everyone posted.
From all of us at the Fly Fishing Club at WCU we are sorry for the inconvenience. Stay safe out there and tight lines.
