The Nantahala Outdoor Center is hosting a fly casting instruction by Rob Fightmaster of Fightmaster Fly Fishing, Maryville, TN on Saturday, August, 21. Anytime between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. you can join Rob at the Great Outpost for some quality fly fishing instruction. Anyone from the novice fly fisherman to the expert can benefit from Rob’s knowledge and you can also witness some fly tying action.
Rob has been fly fishing for more than 20 years, has fished all over the United States, has been a professional guide in Kentucky and Tennessee, has taught numerous fly fishing schools, fly tying classes, rod building classes and introduced hundreds of people to this sport. In addition, he has been involved in the fly fishing retail business, tied flies commercially, and coordinated a variety of fly fishing special events. Most recently, Rob was the Fly Fishing Program Director at Blackberry Farm. During his six years there, he created a fly fishing program, opened a fly shop, restored a trout stream, and was awarded the Orvis Endorsed Lodge of the Year, two years in a row. This was the first (and so far only) lodge in the eastern United States to receive the award and the only lodge in the country to ever receive it back to back. Clients from around the country have described Rob as someone with an endless supply of patience and one of the best fly fishing instructors anywhere.
