The ninth-annual North Carolina TU youth fly-fishing camp called Rivercourse is underway currently at Lake Logan, near Canton. Seventeen youth anglers from three states are enrolled for a week of camp that involves fishing at dawn, fishing at dusk, and more fishing during the day - all on the private waters that are stocked by the Lake Logan Resort. TU staff member Franklin Tate came from Asheville to speak to the youths about how TU is grooming the next generation of leaders for the preservation of land, trout streams and water quality in general. Workshops on fly-tying, fishing regulations, casting techniques and more are part of the curriculum - plus daily swim time in the cool waters of Lake Logan.
