Guided Trips

UPDATE: 10/6/2015 -- Smokies Fly Fishing Report: We are transitioning towards the beautiful fall colors. Rain last week helped tremendously with water levels, at least in the short term. Watch for large brown trout on the move as we approach the spawn. This is the time to find these fish out feeding as they fatten up for the spawn. Brook trout are sporting their best colors right now and the high elevation streams currently have the best fall colors if you want great scenery.

Caney Fork Fly Fishing Report: The Caney Fork is fishing well at times but only average during others. Look for cloudy/overcast days to be best at least for now. The high water streamer bite always gives a shot at some quality fish although nymphs and midges will catch the majority of your fish on low or falling water. Contact me about a float or wade trip if you want to get in on this great fishing at or call/text (931) 261-1884.

Cumberland Plateau Fishing Report: Smallmouth bass fishing is on its last legs for the year. We'll be breaking out the musky gear soon for the colder months. While temperatures hold steady, look for the bass to be on a feeding binge getting ready for colder weather. Get out now as this won't last long.

November Sunset

This is one of many reasons why I love the cold months.  It seems the sunrises and sunsets are consistently better this time of year, and of course that could just be my imagination.  Regardless, I DO know that I particularly enjoyed the sunset this evening despite the coldest temperatures of the season yet and stiff breeze that tried in vain to deter my photography session.  The beauty in the heavens was too much for me to be distracted by something as insignificant as cold weather.  Here are a few of the pictures from the evening...


  1. That, is a pretty impressive sunset.


  2. Don't those pictures just warm the corners of anyone's mind.
