NC Fly Fishing Guide Service
The guides at NC Fly Fishing spend enough time—more than 300 days a year—on the waters around western North Carolina and southwestern Virginia to know them intimately, even though their range spans more than 3,000 miles. Throughout this great expanse, they lead new and experienced fishers on expeditions, imparting wisdom and guidance along the way, that often result in trophy-worthy catches. Best of all, they provide lunch and all the necessary equipment, giving anglers the chance to spend a full day on the water perfecting their casting techniques or their ability to coax fish to jump onto the fishhook of their own accord.
