Fishing is like raising children: both require patience, superior breath-holding skills, and a pocket full of worms to entice cooperation. Catch your next meal with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a three-hour fishing trip for two people on the Chattahoochee River from River Through Atlanta in Roswell (a $225 value).

River Through Atlanta's experienced guides lead fishing expeditions along the peaceful Chattahoochee River, giving pole wielders a chance to hook a bevy of subaqueous friends. The three-hour voyage, a fusion of drift boat and wading, ferries anglers down five to 10 miles of designated trout water. Fishing fanatics can relax in the padded seats of a McKenzie-style boat or stand up in braces for a stable cast, while guides paddle, share their tips, and serenade with a siren song irresistible to passing fish.

A vernal burst of blooming buds along the Chattahoochee means a plethora of insect hatches, from caddis flies to mayflies to stone flies, with guides helping fishermen and women match the hatch for successful angling. Waders must supply their own wading equipment, including a Georgia trout-fishing license, boots, chest waders, a wading belt, heavy socks, polarized sunglasses, and a pair of nippers and forceps for snipping off flies or performing riverside brain surgery. Under the helpful instruction of a wading virtuoso, novice fly-fishers can learn to successfully cast and present flies by the trip's end.

From the vantage point of a bobbing vessel, trolling adepts may glimpse white-tailed deer, osprey, otter, or mink frolicking in more than 9,000 acres of protected park lands off the banks of the Chattahoochee. River Through Atlanta owner Chris Scalley grew up near the Chattahoochee and knows the ins and outs of its ecosystem intimately, currently spending more than 200 days a year on the river's lush banks and the other 165 in a trout commune.

River Through Atlanta

A Roswell native, River Through Atlanta owner Chris Scalley grew up on the Chattahoochee River, which he proudly still calls home. It's not unusual for Chris to spend 200 days or more on the Hooch, as he and his affiliate guides constantly lead fly fishing instruction, boat trips, and wading trips on the river. Because of his lifetime of experience, Chris has accumulated a unique knowledge of the local ecology, behavior of the trout, and how frequently they vote on American Idol. Though he has fished at destination rivers all over the world, Chris still feels that the Hooch holds its own with regard to angling and aesthetics. To preserve these aesthetics, Chris led efforts to protect the Chattahoochee and its sport fishery, earning him recognition in 2007 as a Hero of Conservation in Field & Stream.
