Casting for Hope hosts a suite of fly-fishing competitions across each calendar year–and we are always open to another one if you have an idea! ¬†Our two annual events are our Fips-based, world-championship-molded Casting for Hope,¬†based out of Spruce Pine and Bakersville, North Carolina that runs the second weekend in April each year and our “no rules except no barbs” Cherokee Classic that draws in many competition anglers but also opens the door to folks who might not be familiar with or yet-comfortable with the Fips rules.
