I moved to Western North Carolina with Patty, 12 years ago after living in South Fl for 30 yrs, where my family enjoyed year-round offshore and backcountry fishing.

Soon after arriving here my son sent me a fly rod and I started fishing on the Green River where I fell in love with fly fishing and the peace of being on the river. It doesn’t get any better than a day on the water with my son and grandson.

I especially love exploring new waters and learning the skills required to fish them. A pastime soon turned into a passion, and soon started to tie my own flys and build fly rods. I am thankful for the many friends that have helped me learn more about the sport over the years and enjoy passing on what I’ve learned.

I stay very active in the fly fishing community as a member of Hilltop Fly Tyers, the Fly Fishing Federation and Trout Unlimited, where I am currently in charge of stocking the Green River. I also volunteer for the Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education as a Master Angler, for Becoming an Outdoor Woman, and Project Healing Waters where I teach fly tying at the Asheville V.A. I believe fly fishing is all about having fun and sharing an experience.
Our WNC trout waters are filled with lively rainbows, browns and brook trout. Fish with our fly fishing guides from Pisgah National Forest to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. ... more

Beginning anglers can sign up for a day or weekend of fly fishing instruction and guided fishing with our skilled, patient and fun guides.

More advanced anglers can choose from the over 4,000 miles of freestone mountain trout water located within easy reach of our home base in Asheville, NC. The Davidson River, one of the most exciting and challenging rivers in our area, is listed in Trout Unlimited’s “Top 100 Trout Streams.”

Western North Carolina’s temperate climate makes this a great destination for fly fishing 365 days a year. Spring and fall offer the best hatches while in winter months anglers often find they have rivers to themselves as they search for trophy trout.

No matter what the season, you’ll have your choice of fishing on wild trout waters filled with big, wary browns or hiking to streams in the beautiful Smoky Mountains that hold the prize catch, native Appalachian brook trout.
