The Fly Fishing Guide to Southern Trout

Flying fishing guide for southern catfish

  Flying fishing guide: Jeff Curtis, Curtis Wright

  Western North Carolina does not want the catfish stream to flow, so under the radar of the target, a river is easy to flow.More than 4,000 miles of cold, clear public catfish pouring out of the mountain, creating primitive habitats for wild and stored catfish.The South toe River is located in the shadow of Mount Mitchell. When discussing the trophy trolley stream, it usually does not pop up the top of the list, but it may be done.Jeff Curtis, co -founder of Curtis Wright Outfitters, started guiding in the area 15 years ago and prefers the southern toe for its wild catfish and technology fishing.

  He said: "For my southern toe, this is more about the method, not scared fish -keep low -key and tangled fish -exactly to match the cabin."

  The tributary of southern toe water near Lanling Park Avenue, Mount Mitchell runs cold and clean; lack of residential or commercial runoffs will make this free source flow very healthy. This river is divided into three parts, wild brown, rainbow and local stream catfish in the upper wild catfish area of ??the upper -level camping site, the pools, shallow beaches and boulder fields. There is a mile of fishing and release around the camping site. It only comes around and the lower part of the camping site, running through the Yancey County Entertainment Park, so it has been supported by the incubation field. Although the different parts provide something for everyone, Curtis chose the wild catfish above the camping place to obtain the beauty and consistent trunual flies of the stream.

  He said: "This is a bit of personality." "Because some of its stretching is captured and released, it almost feels like fish behind some rocks. You know, if you can get a good actor, FISH will be FISH will be FISH will be FISH will be FISH will be FISH will be FISH will be FISH will be FISH will be FISH will be. Sit there because you caught him last week. "

  Guide Reba Brinkman, Hunter Bank Company

  In the previous life, Reba Brinkman was an advertising consultant of a small enterprise, but found that he kept abandoning his work to go to the water. Hunter Banks Fly Shop, Ashville, North Carolina, met an accidental encounter, prompting her to quit her daily work and join the team. In addition to becoming a guide, she is now a planning director of the store, and also manages the flight fishing expo in western North Carolina. The story of "Ad EXEC Trow Fish Guide" is as old as time, but Brinkman has never turned back.

  She said, "It’s great." "I think this is my call."

  Whether it is to guide customers or fishing for a day, she likes to go to the North Mils River between Ashville and Hendersonville. Although Davidson is not as famous as its neighbors, he has a special location in Brinkman’s heart. The erosion problem once damaged the health of the river, but the catfish involved infinitely and built a low fence to keep the fishermen from the banks of the river, and re -introduced the indigenous plants to establish the river bank border and provide habitat and shadow. The result was dramatic and transformed the North mill back to the former fisheries.

  "I like to bring customers because when I teach them how to fish, I can also point out our protection work, show them the importance of maintaining protection, and show them how important this is to maintain our nature. Resources. "Brillman said. "Especially the North mill is a perfect example, which shows how desperate this river is, but through enthusiastic fishermen and protectors, we have repaired this."

  From October to June, the northern mill is now rich in streams, rainbow and brown catfish, and the harvest part of 3 miles is divided into two parts. The lower part of the North Mills camping can provide instant channels and opportunities for easy wading, while the upper part of Trace Ridge Trailhead requires a brief hiking and stronger foundation. Brinkeman said that the river "reads like textbooks", running, shallow beaches and swimming pools, and it is recommended to use nymphs, although the blue -wing olives and Kadis cabin are also rich.

  Flying fishing guide: Ian & Charity Rutter, R & R Fly Fishing

  The relationship between the population of Dashan Mountain National Park and the catfish population is somewhat up and down. Once it is threatened by logging, the entire catfish population is now booming in the park. Ian Rutter has been fishing smoke since the early 1990s, almost guiding. He flew organically, found fish during hiking, and learned how to fly fish to fish. In 2006, Rutter and his wife’s charity founded R & R Fly Fishing in Townsend. They also collaborated with several books, including the companion of the fishing fisherman of the Dayan Mountain National Park, and "Fishing GSMNP Open Guide". Townsnd is located outside the border of the park, but the traces of the road on the track are the couple’s favorite catfish fisheries: small river, a typical mountain catfish stream. To each pebble.

  Ian said that between guiding clients and free time fishing, he spent about 100 days a year fishing for this small river. This is the main reason: variety shows. There are about 15 miles on the roadside entrance point above the Elkmont camp in the park, and a small diameter of 12 miles. The lower part can provide larger water and enter immediately, while the upper hiking part is more distant and higher. This also transformed into a variety of fish.

  Ian explained: "You can get up there, only one hour fishing, and there is a short time that it is easy to reach in a short period of time." Hiking and camping in remote areas without seeing others. Everyone has something. "

  Whether you are on the upstream tributary of the fishing or the lower part, you will find that all the fish are wild, which means that they are smarter than ordinary catfish. Although it is a wild catfish river, the population of a small population has a strong population, with a range of 2,000-3,000 per mile, and can grow according to any standards.

  Ian said: "About one year or twice, some people will hook a good fish in the" wet pants "category." "They often lose it because they don’t expect such a big thing."

  The experience of fishing in GSMNP is the beauty of rivers and wild animals and plants. Ian said that every month or occasional Turkey and otters see the black bear several times that the black bear will never be old. Charity said that in such an original environment, the natural aspects of fishing play an overall guidance philosophy.

  She said: "For us, share our understanding of water, fish and national parks, so that others can love it and protect it like us."

Georgia is famous for its sultry summer and vast areas of coastal areas, so it is easy to ignore. However, you will find another story to the mountains of North Geori.

  "Beecia is a legitimate catfish fishing destination. This is very similar to fishing in western North Carolina or East Temple." "All of our mountains are very similar. You can fish 100 % of the wild sacrifice. Fish is challenged, even if you are a advanced flying fisherman who fish for a lifetime. "

  Clewin should know: he has been fishing and instructing him most of his time in northern Georgia. Klewein has been fascinated by flying fishing since he was 10 years old. He is the owner of the REEEL JOB FISHING of Blue Ridge, George, and published Fly with the fishing partner and photographer Louis Cahill. Fishing Blog Gink & Gasoline. Clewin said that on the TOCCOA River outside the Blue Ridge, one of the best places for Georgia’s trophy.

  The Toccoa River is a tail flow flowing from the east of the small town, with rainbow and brown catfish. You can choose to fish on the four public channels, but Clewin is recommended to use drift ships, canoe or kayak to cover as much water as much as possible. Two main floats from dams to Curtis Switch or Curtis Switch to Horse Shoe Bend Park will provide you with the best opportunities and cast the surprisingly big catfish for TOCCOA.

  Clewin said: "The river has 16 miles, so there are a lot of water. The fact is that there are thousands of catfish every year, so at least you know that you are going to a place with a fish." "The most important thing is that there are some breeding fish, and there are many reservations, so everyone has something."

  On the top of the lake, Shangtoco is still relatively large, and the water temperature during the summer peak rises, although the water temperature rises. Clewin said that the upper part of the river is a beautiful water, and there is a two -mile delayed harvest near the top of the lake. Several small tributaries like NOONTOOTLA CREEK and Rock Creek also flowed into Topoa and holding wild catfish. However, if you follow the big boy, there is only one place to go. Tail water is equal to large water, big water is equal to big fish … if you can capture them. Even if the inventory fish, Clewin insists on landing that fool, you must still be at the peak of the game.

  He said: "They are there." "Some people captured 12 pounds of catfish from [TOCCOA]. This is only one of them. First, you can’t realize it; you only need to spend some time. One, you only need to fish smartly, and you can make the actors fool those bigger fish. "
