Joshua Garris

About
Joshua Garris is an Asheville Native who cut his teeth fishing the area water starting around the age of 5 and never stopped. He has been fishing the local rivers and head waters for over 30yrs and is ready to show you what makes him passionate about his home waters. He is married with 2 teenage children and loves to teach. He is wonderful with children and loves to share his knowledge to novices and experts the same. There is always something new to learn with fly fishing and Josh wants to help you find that. Although catching big brown and rainbow trout is exhilarating, Josh can also introduce you to some of the most beautiful fish in the world, our native Brook Trout. They live amongst some of the most beautiful scenery imaginable. So whether you are just learning, wanting to learn more, or just looking for the right place, Josh is the guide for you!

After working many years in the culinary field, Josh decided to make a jump to the fly fishing industry to which he has been guiding full time for the last 10+ years. Along with fishing our local area, Josh does a Hosted Western Trip every year. With this and his own travels he has had the chance to fish some of the most fabled trout water in the West. Josh is a member and volunteers for many local nonprofits such as Trout Unlimited, Casting Carolina’s, and Project Healing Waters to name a few. Josh has been featured on the television show Carolina Outdoors on two occasions, writes for Southern Culture on the Fly, and has been featured in several other articles and publications.

Thanks so much for a wonderful time with you and your beautiful birds the other day! I asked them (the girls) what they liked best about the weekend and they both immediately said… the hawks!
