Hello guys, my phone is ringing and emails are pouring in. My calendar is beginning to fill up for peak vacation season. Don't wait until the last minute to make plans, as I am now offering a guide package that you won't find anywhere else. For three hundred dollars, I can host a fly fishing trip for a family of four. My background as a park ranger and camp counselor has given me the experience to lead expeditions like this. I will provide all equipment free of charge, and lunch is included. I am licensed and insured, and you can check my rates against anyone else and find that I am affordable. Feel free to check my reviews on tripadvisor as well. I go above and beyond for my clients. If you call and I can't get to the phone right away, I will call you right back. I'm a one man operation, and most trout streams are out of cell phone range. ...

Hey guys, some of the smaller streams are fishable now. We've got thunderstorms in the forecast every day, so things could change in a hurry. I hope everyone has a good memorial day weekend. ...

Well guys, good trout fishing is just a figment of our imagination at this point in time. Some more huge storms moved over the area and have caused flooding in east tn and boone.More flood pics in trade ...

Here is a picture of my great uncle Blaine and my great grandfather Wiley. They caught lots of trout on whitetop laurel creek in Virginia. Back in those days, there was no such thing as catch and release on trout streams. All trout caught were then “released to grease”. I am proud of my mountain trout fishing roots, but release all native trout that we catch on our guided trips. Stocked trout in hatchery supported waters are another matter altogether. If a client wants to enjoy a stocked trout dinner, I am more than glad to oblige. ...

This is great man!!! Thanks for sharing and great to see another fly fisherman recognize our Virginia roots and pay homage to it by choosing Selective Harvest. I support this 100%. 🎣

Thank you for sharing! Great photo and family history.

A group of anglers met for the annual PFF gathering this year. I managed to make it out for one day, and had a good time catching brook trout with my friend Phil. This creek has a northern/southern strain hybrid that was stocked by the forest service in the 50's. This has developed into a nice population of fish, which has yielded several 9-10 inch brookies for me last spring. The large brookies from last year were not present, however all of the other guys in our group reported that the rainbow and brown trout fishing on the main creek was slow as well. The barometric pressure has been in a constant state of flux, and the heavy rains have turned most of our creeks into a muddy slurry. Excellent fishing should return to our area creeks in two days. ...
