Hello friends,

In order to keep up with the expansion of my business, i'll be moving a little closer to Boone this week. This way, I can be close to my office location and easily meet groups for guide trips. This move will be labor intensive and i'll be unable to guide any clients until Saturday, August 11th.

Tolliver's Guide Service

This summer, I've introduced many families to fly fishing. The children have really had fun out on the water. Look at those smiles. Lately, I've seen lots of children get "hooked" on fly fishing. Are you still thinking about vacation plans this summer? I can handle group sizes of up to 4 people. My background as a camp counselor and park ranger have given me the insight to lead groups of this size. All waders, fly fishing gear, drinks and lunch plus a casting lesson are included in these trips. Although I cater to families, I am also happy to assist individuals or couples who would like to learn more about fishing in the Boone, NC region. My rates are extremely affordable. I have 20 years of fly fishing experience in the mountains of the tri state region, so you will be in good hands with Tolliver's Guide Service. Give me a call or send me an message to discuss booking your trip. ...

And when you stay at the House on Watauga Lake in Butler or the Creekside Chalet along a creek, you can meet up with Jessie for some great fishing as well

I love introducing first timers to the sport of fly fishing. My client today landed 30 trout on his first ever fly fishing trip. He caught 23 wild rainbow trout, 1 stocked brown trout, and 6 stocked rainbow trout. Needless to say, the action was red hot on a small creek in east Tennessee. A trip for beginners includes a free casting lesson before we start the day. I have three years of experience as a fly fishing guide, and not one of my clients has been skunked on a trip. I will work with you to ensure that your technique gets refined. All trips include waders and rods free of charge, transportation to and from the stream, and a streamside lunch. ...

Guide highlights from the past several weeks-

1.) Successfully guiding my largest group, the Wall family of Raleigh. All six family members landed many rainbow trout. Their youngest son Anderson was 8, and the youngest client I've ever had. I was glad to see him enjoy the many wild rainbow trout in an east Tennessee creek.

2.) The Sullivan family of Mississippi. Their 21 year old son was a first time fly fisherman, who landed 35 wild rainbow trout while fishing with Tolliver's Guide Service.

3.) Manny Fernandez of Florida landed his first ever wild trout, a North Carolina native brook trout. He went on to catch more natives, as well as wild rainbow trout. Not bad for a first timer who has never fiy fished a mountain stream.

4.) Successfully guiding a family of three from Texas. All three family members caught many trout, with 3 fish willing to pose for a picture.

I continue to stand behind my 100 percent success rate on guided trips, and will work with you until your technique is perfected.
