We specialize in guiding and teaching fly fishing for trout and smallmouth bass in Western North Carolina & East Tennessee. Trout Float Trips Watauga River The Watauga is one of our favorites. It is just an hour drive from Asheville, and we normally float the quality section through Watauga, TN. The Watauga is the river for you if you want to learn many different techniques. South Holston River The South Holston is famous for it’s summertime sulphur hatches. It can also be the most challenging and complex river in the country. This float trip is for people who don’t mind a challenge, and really want to cast to rising fish. Tuckaseegee River The Tuckaseegee is a great early and late season fishery. It is a North Carolina Delayed Harvest stream and receives more fish than any other river in NC. If you hit it right it can be some of the most productive nymph fishing available. Smallmouth Bass Float Trips French Broad, Pigeon, Toe, and Nolichucky. There is nothing like a river smallmouth. They are aggressive and do everything they can to break your tackle. We float all of the rivers above and choose them based on water flow and temperature. They all have their good times. After you feel a 2+ pound fish pull on a fly rod you will be hooked. Be prepared to cast heavy flies frequently. Rates: Full Day (1 - 2 Anglers) - $450.00 / trip Half Day (1 - 2 Anglers) - $375.00 / trip Trip Price Includes: Rod, wader rentals, water and softdrinks.
