Anglers are invited to register for the first Blue Ridge Parkway Masters Fly Fishing Tournament on Thursday, Sept. 24, to benefit the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation. The single-angler event led by Chetola Resort Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing will be held on private trophy water near Boone.

“So many people who love the Blue Ridge Parkway, also love to fly fish,” said event organizer and fly-fishing guide Morgan Tarbutton. “This is a way to enjoy the sport and the outdoors and support an amazing park.”
