Fly fishing tail waters, rivers and streams -- trout, small mouth bass, pan fish
Guided Wade Trips
Try our trout fly fishing trips in North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia, Florida. We have wade trips in state parks, as well as tailing the race waters of the Watauga River.

Most of our guided wade trips are on public waters and streams. Our guides show you where the fish are and how to catch them.  You'll also learn water reading and screening for trout foods. This way, you're able to return on your own at any time!

Enjoy all the fishing the High Country has to offer on your next vacation!
Half day wade trip $100.00 (2nd person + 50.00)
Full day wade trip $175.00 (2nd person + 75.00)

Guided Float Trips
We welcome you to join us on an angling adventure! Try your hand at fly fishing on the tail waters of the Watauga River and the South Holston River. The trophy sections of these rivers offer a chance at a true Trophy Brown and Rainbow Trout on each cast!

There are plenty of hard fighting small mouth bass in North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia for fly and/or spin casting. Enjoy small mouth trips in the warmer months (June through November) on the New River and the James River as well.
