  • Asheville Anglers
    Hosted at nearby waterways such as the Watauga River or French Broad River, Asheville Anglers' two-hour fly-fishing lessons pair an expert angler with 4–10 sure-handed students. A friendly pole pioneer acquaints students with wader wearing, rod rigging, fly selection, and how to tie the appropriate knot for bow ties worn while fishing. Pupils then tote the provided gear and tackle, including hand-tied flies, and practice casting to gain an understanding of fundamental technique. An entomology lesson sheds light on various key terms, after which groups head into the water for guided practice in the art of fly fishing. Instructors provide cool refreshments for all, but budding line slingers should bring their own sunglasses, sunscreen, and canned story about the fish or gal that got away.

  • Paddle Inn Rafting
    With years and years of experience navigating the river's rapids, the Thomas family has some strong opinions about which watercraft provide the best experience. When they first got started, they weren't able to find any with all the features they wanted, so they decided to design their own. Paddle Inn's signature rafts were created specifically for riding the Nantahala River, and they boast a number of features intended to provide the optimal experience, including urethane undersides, which allow the rafts to easily slide over the occasional rock or kraken. The rafts transports patrons down the river on guided trips and self-guided excursions aboard rafts in multiple sizes, as well as inflatable kayaks. These vessels can accommodate couples all the way up to groups of eight. After a trip, river trekkers can dry off by perching next to a crackling fire or spinning around in a circle really fast.
