This is the 50/50:
It starts with a morning filled with individualized instruction to help hone your fly fishing skills. Whether it's knots, casting, fly tying, or other techniques you want to master, we have the knowledge and the experience to help take your skills to the next level.
After a simple lunch, the afternoon is filled with fly fishing instruction in the waters of Western North Carolina. Exactly where we fly fish is based on the fishing conditions found that day. Fortunately, we have many local waters from which to choose, including the east or the west fork of the Pigeon River, Jonathan Creek, the Tuckaseegee, and a few others. During the warm summer months, if fly fishing for small mouth bass is your thing, we can fish the lower Pigeon.

Regardless of your skill level, your knowledge will be improved and your skills will be enhanced by fly fishing alongside our experienced guides.
What is included in your guided trip? Time with an experienced guide, a fly rod, reel and flies to use on the rivers that day, a bottle of Frog's Fanny Fly Treatment, a simple lunch, and bottled water. If you are more comfortable using your own rod and reel, we encourage you to bring them.
What is not included? Waders and boots, as well as outdoor gear like jackets, hats and gloves. If you need help with any of these things, please let us know when you make your reservation.
You are also responsible for obtaining a North Carolina Fishing License. If you show up on the day without a valid license, one must be obtained before the trip can be started and this will reduce the amount of time we have available to fish. So please come prepared.
