Fly Tie & Fish Fry Picnic
April 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$7 – $14
Come out to celebrate the opening of Trout Season and the Blowing Rock Trout Derby! Enjoy a Fish Fry menu on the patio (chicken tenders available for kids, too) and lots of fun extras: In conjunction with the picnic, Chetola’s Orvis Endorsed Guide Dustin Coffey will headline a free
fly tying lesson on the lawn where children and adults can either watch or try their hands at
tying flies in preparation for the town-wide fishing extravaganza the following day. Weather
permitting, the lakeside bonfire will be roaring and s’mores available for purchase. Boone-
based Appalachian Mountain Brewery will also be on hand to serve its award-winning craft
beers, with proceeds benefitting the Trout Derby. A collection of lawn games, including
Cornhole, Spike Ball, and Ram Jam, will be placed on Chetola lawn for all ages to engage in
some friendly competition.
