Richard Witt began fishing as a young boy in Sheboygan, Wisconsin for species that included trout, bass, walleye, steelhead and salmon. He gained a great deal of fishing experience ... morethere which happened to include mastering the art of musky fishing with his bare hands!

Formerly a professional musician, Richard’s musical groups were conveniently booked near a number of the country’s finest fly fishing destinations in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, California, Colorado, Montana and Wyoming enabling him to fine-tune his fly fishing skills. He is a former Vice President and member of the Land of Sky Trout Unlimited Chapter, a volunteer for Casting for Recovery retreats, a collector of antique bamboo fly rods and a big fan of the Green Bay Packers.

As a guide and an instructor for our Fly Fishing, Fly Tying and Casting Classes and Fly Fishing Schools, Richard has a great passion for teaching and sharing his knowledge and experience from the 40 plus years he‘s been fishing (20 of which have been in WNC and Tennessee). Whether it’s chasing Backcountry Brookies along the Blue Ridge Parkway or in the Pisgah National Forest, midge fishing for lunker trout on the Davidson River, fighting the acrobatic Rainbows of the Cherokee Trophy Water, catching the Sulphur Hatch on the South Holston River or stalking Smallmouth Bass on the French Broad River, Richard has the knowledge and experience to provide beginners or advanced anglers the Fly Fishing Adventure you’re seeking.

Richard believes in three essentials for a successful guided fly fishing trip:

#1 – Have Fun! Keep things simple, make sure we all enjoy the day and have a good time on the water.

#2 – Learn something – Provide patient personal attention to teach each guest enough about fly fishing so that the next time they go they can do it on their own or advance their existing skills.

#3 – Catch fish! Small fish, big fish, a few fish, lots of fish! Catch fish!
Jacob Rash ~ Jacob, a native of Weaverville, with family roots that trace back to its founding, has spent his entire life fishing the streams and branches of Western NC, starting out ... morewith his Great grandfather at the age of 16 months. “Fishing and caring for fisheries has always been a passion of mine”, says Jacob, his school studies were steeped in environmental and natural resources, horticulture and the effects of acid rain in our mountain ecosystem.

Jacob also served for a stent as meetings coordinator for the Land O’ Sky Chapter of Trout Unlimited.

When Jacob is not on the water guiding or scouting the next riffle, you could expect to find him in his basement workshop collecting and restoring vintage split cane rods, tying flys, building fly rods (some of his work has been featured in the Fiberglass Manifesto’s #glassisnotdead list), writing for and co-managing the “Between Two Banks” blog or reading one of John Gierach’s books.
Will Loftus ~ Will is a North Carolina native with a life-long interest in the outdoors, and a commitment to the responsible enjoyment of the natural world. Will came to fly fishing ... moreafter spending time rock climbing, working as a white water rafting guide, serving in AmeriCorps with inner-city children in Atlanta, and assisting with Mountain Challenge, at Maryville College, which provides a wide range of outdoor experiences for young and old, individuals and corporate groups. In his spare time, he enjoys fly tying, and looking for ways to make them just a little more attractive to sophisticated, picky fish.

As well as being relaxing and a lot of fun, Will shares the opinion of Christopher Rownes in “The Perfect Loop,” where he says that fly fishing “stands for values such as respect for nature, for tolerance, tranquility, self-composure, the ability to enjoy, and a readiness for measure and self-contemplation….the rivers keep us humble…and the trout teach us gratitude.”

In addition to being great fun, whether you’re fishing alone, with family, or with a group of friends or co-workers, you lose yourself in nature, in the river, in the cast, and in the competition with the fish. Whether you’re a beginner or an old hand, fly fishing can be whatever you want it to be — exciting or relaxing, a challenge to be faced, or a Zen moment to be appreciated.

Like a complex corporate problem, fly fishing requires that you, the river, the rod, the fly, the weather, and the cast all come together in just the right way to produce the result you want — everything from quiet satisfaction to sweet success, and all the space in between!
