Fly Fishing

Family paddling by Silenteye

For most, our earliest memories recall scenes from nature that made us realize how small we really are in this world. Scenes that put us beside ourselves and made us forget the trivial and behold the grand. Holding to those memories we wish not to be the moment but to simply become a part of its pause. For us at Haw River Canoe & Kayak Co. the peace in that pause draws us on to the banks and into the currents, wading or paddling through nature’s rhythms to find our own. We inject our lives into the river one cast after another, with our hope tied delicately to the end of a floating line. Subtly, nature’s rhythms intertwine with our own and we begin to realize that the river has poured its life into ours as we see the first fish rise. Between those graceful lines and spirited runs we hardly notice the moment drifting silently past timeless stones and luscious banks until it washes into us, its perfect pause.

We are excited to share our experience and enthusiasm for fly-fishing and hope you will allow us the opportunity to guide your rhythm into the currents to find that moment and become part of a perfect pause.

Introduction to Fly Fishing

The Haw River Canoe & Kayak Co. is pleased to offer an “Introduction To Fly Fishing” course. With our casual riverside atmosphere, it is our intention to guide you through the steps necessary to enjoy a day on the water without the frustrations that often accompany learning a new sport/art. In our course we will cover gear & tackle, fundamentals of casting and basic fly presentation. We offer our instruction in either a group setting in front of our shop or as private instruction.   The shallows below the dam in Saxapahaw offer an ideal learning location as does the lake above the dam.

Fee:  $160 per person.  The fee includes instruction.  It also includes a Maxxon Outfitter’s rod & reel and a couple of popular, hand-made flies to take home with you.
