Guide Trips


About Our Trips

Our guide service will take you to the Chattooga or Chauga Rivers located just a short drive from our shop.  While on the river our guides will instruct and demonstrate a wide variety of techniques necessary for fly fishing.  Whether searching for Trout in the cooler months or chasing the Red-Eye Bass in the warmer months, we can arrange a full or half-day trip to accommodate our guests desires.  A full day guide trip is approximately 8 hours on the river, while a half-day guide trip is approximately 4 hours on the river.  If you are catching fish near the end of your guided trip, we will not abandon the river due to time.    Equipment including, waders, boots, fly rods/reels & all flies are included in the price of a trip.  During full day trips a nice lunch will be provided for our guests.  Our guides are dedicated on putting our guests on fish and all guide trips are catch and release only.

What to Bring

All guests are responsible for having a South Carolina fishing license if we are fishing the Chauga river and either a South Carolina or Georgia fishing license if we are fishing the Chattooga river.  Guests will need the appropriate clothing for the day of their trip.  We do fish in the rain, so appropriate rain gear is necessary, as the fishing can be quite productive.  Other items to bring are, polarized sun glasses, hat (available at the shop), camera, sun block, extra warm socks, quick-dry clothes, and a change of clothes for the ride home.
