Most Fridays on Casting Across are devoted to other people’s contributions in the fly fishing community. Articles, pictures, social media accounts, videos, podcasts, products, and more will be featured on The Last Cast of the Week.
Today, I’m sharing items from Fly Fishing Museum of the Southern Appalachians, Catch Magazine, & Fly Fishing Girls of the Mid Atlantic.
If you’d like to be featured in the Last Cast of the Week, or have seen something that others might be interested in, use my contact form or shoot me an email (matthew[at]castingacross[dot]com).
Thanks again for reading, and please take a moment to subscribe by plugging your email address in the field on the right sidebar.
In just over a month, this museum is going to reopen in their new location in Bryson City, North Carolina. After beginning its existence in Cherokee, the exhibits and displays have moved to a new location on the banks of the Tuckasegee River. On September 24th, the museum will hold a ceremony that includes the induction of their inaugural Hall of Fame class. If you’re in the area, this event will be worth checking out. If you plan on driving through or fishing in the region, the museum is worth a trip.
You’ll get your click’s worth in the first two minutes of this video. Big, rising trout in a spring creek are always fun to watch. Spring Creek fishing, regardless of where in the country or world you are, is a special and very different enterprise than most trout streams provide. This short video captures the beauty, passion, difficulty, and feel of pursuing fish that live in a food-rich and relatively small ecosystem.
Don’t let the name fool you: there is a real benefit to following this group if you are a) not a girl and/or b) not in the mid Atlantic region. The content and links that they put out are genuinely worth browsing through. They do post a lot, but there is great diversity that covers everything from technique to conservation to, yes, women in the sport. Give them a follow, like their stuff, and enjoy as they do the hard work to gather all the good fly fishing stuff from Facebook.
