The flagship event of Casting for Hope’s Gold-Level Casting for Hope Fly-Fishing Competition, is a three-day, five-session, five-venue tournament that draws some of the best anglers in the world to western North Carolina. This year’s event is April 13-15, 2018 and basecamps from our Casting for Hope Retreat Center in Bakersville. While the event, often seen by many anglers as a practice tournament for the World Championships that run the same model, is populated by some of the best anglers in the world, the event always has some folks who just want a fun, long weekend of fishing enter. They would love to see you with a rod in hand.
In addition to the fishermen, the weekend has a need for over 250 volunteer slots to be filled, so if you don’t like fishing but want to volunteer, they could definitely use your help. Check out the following entry forms to register to fish or volunteer.
We are very excited to introduce our presenting sponsor--Master Nymph. Master Nymph makes the coveted Bellator fly rods. Fly fishermen who demand the very best in equipment all over the world are talking about and fishing these rods. Jason is donating 5 10'6" #3 Bellator to Casting for Hope to give to each member of the winning team this April. That is a prize worth climbing every rock for!
