Chestnut Mountain Ranch “Fly Rod Chronicles” Episode One Not to Miss

By Julie Perine on January 25, 2015

About to air on the Outdoor Channel is an episode of “Fly Rod Chronicles” which is quite special to Curtis Fleming.

Running Jan. 29-31 is a show featuring the boys of Chestnut Mountain Ranch of Morgantown. Back in October, the residents of the Christ-centered home and school were surprised with a visit by Fleming and his FRC crew. In its third year of operation, the facility – located on 225 acres of rural Monongalia County countryside - houses, educates and provides quality outdoor recreation to young boys in need of hope and healing...

FRC Lands Sports Greats

Jerry West, Nick Faldo fling flies with Curtis Fleming
By: Mike Suchan,

Business, it’s been said, gets done on the golf course. Especially show business.

Curtis Fleming hooked up with several of his big-name guests for this season’s “Fly Rod Chronicles” at the PGA Tour’s Greenbrier Classic in Lewisburg, W.Va. Lining up his back casts, along with some good fortune, is how Fleming came to fish with the likes of Jerry West and Sir Nick Faldo.

FRC already had a fishing date with current West Virginia Mountaineers coach Bob Huggins, and he offered a great suggestion to Fleming then helped him secure one of the state’s brightest lights...

The Fly Rod Chronicles at the Harman’s North Fork Invitational 2013

The Fly Rod Chronicles is a program I have been enjoying on the Outdoor Channel for a number of years. Curtis Fleming and crew travel the country sharing their fly fishing pursuits like no others. In early May of 2013 the show made it's way back home to West Virginia for the Harman's North Fork Invitational 2013. The event offers two-man fly fishing teams a chance to compete for first place on the North Fork of the South Branch River in West Virginia.

Some really top notch anglers get together for this event and Todd Harman was on me for a couple of years about getting a Paflyfish team going for the Invitational. Since Paflyfish has some pretty darn good anglers I figured it wouldn't be too hard to get a competitive team in place. With all the talent I see at a Paflyfish Jamboree I was more concerned about just fielding a team that could wake up for the first session.

As it turned out the short straws went to Shane "Sbecker" Becker and Phil "PhilC" Chadbourn to represent Team Paflyfish at the competition Shane had been to Harman's the year before, which offered him some advantage for the team. Before leaving I asked the guys to just have fun and do their best. I felt like I was sending my kids off to college and almost digressed into warning them about not getting into any trouble...

CLARKSBURG — Curtis Fleming made a deal with his fellow Bridgeport native, former Miss West Virginia Kaitlin Gates, as they prepared to fish the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers for the show he hosts, “Fly Rod Chronicles.”

If he caught the biggest fish during their August outing, she would don fly fishing clothes for her first day back at class at West Virginia University...
