Fly Fishing Workshop in Charlotte with Elijah Saint Blancard

Segment 2, February 24th, 2024

We talk it about it frequently. Fly Fishing is a bucket list sport for many.  For other’s it’s a sport that they’re still learning after years of heading to the mountains, casting in their yard, or enjoying mending a line across a flowing, mountain stream.

If any of that interests you, then you’re invited to participate in an upcoming two-day Fly Fishing Workshop at the local, independent fly shop of Charlotte, Jesse Brown’s

Elijah Saint Blancard is the head fly fishing guide & lead instructor at Jesse Brown’s.  He speaks to Bill Bartee, host of the Carolina Outdoors to speak about the upcoming workshop.
