Not your run of the mill flyfishing guide service....
PROFESSIONAL FLY FISHING GUIDES WHO ENJOY LEAVING THE CROWDS AND MAINSTREAM BEHIND.
Our guided fly fishing trips in beautiful western NC offers the visiting angler incredible opportunities:
- Aggressive brown trout in the Catawba River Tailrace below Lake James
- Smallmouth bass in the North Toe, French Broad and Nolichucky Rivers
We are not your typical fishing "bums" working the local rivers until it's time to move along to Alaska or the Bahamas.
Our guides are hard working, fun loving, local outdoorsmen that have a passion for flyfishing!
When booking with On The Fly Guide Service, you'll fish a local stream that our guides fish when they are not guiding.
A trip with OTFGS will always be a pleasant day on the water with a knowledgeable, friendly, local guide that we hope you will consider a friend from that day forward. We do not hire college students to row our boats, a trip with OTFGS means you'll be fishing with Scott, Chad, or Jeremy!
