Are you and your fly-fishing side kick the “pros from Dover” of the sport in the South? Well you can prove it. Put up your $225 entry fee to compete in the Cherokee’s 2017 Rumble in the Rhododendron Fly Fishing Tournament and have your chance to make good on your claim. This two-person team competition held exclusively in the catch-and-release section of Cherokee’s “trophy waters” (known simply as Raven Fork) is the closest thing in Dixie to the “Trout Masters Classic” as you can find.
The dates for the Rumble in the Rhododendron Fly Fishing Tournament are Oct 28 & 29. The tournament offers a guaranteed payout totaling $10,000 for the top teams. To enter this tournament you must first acquire a Cherokee fishing permit (a list of permit-selling locations may be found at FishCherokee.com), then register for the event by phone or in person at the Cherokee Welcome Center. Your entry fee also includes lunch and dinner. Open to all ages. – For more visit: http://visitcherokeenc.com/events/detail/rumble-in-the-rhododendron-fly-fishing-tournament/#sthash.wolJyJG0.dpuf
