Great Smoky Mountain Fly Fishing at its Best!

Ed Hudon, Expert Fly Fishing GuideCheck out the photos to below. We have Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Palomino (Yellow) Trout, my brother Tony fishing a small creek, Dorothy catching her first fish with a fly rod. My good buddy, Tony from GA, wondering, “what the heck is that?” when an Elk decided to walk through our fishing hole in Cherokee, NC. Last but not least, is one of the best trout fisherman I know, Forrest showing off this pre-historic Brown Trout. Each one of these photos is a great memory. I’m sure you will have your own memory to look back on as well. Let’s go fishing!

I took a day off to go fishing with some friends today, March 22nd
Another gorgeous day in North Carolina. The fishing continues to be good to excellent and if that isn't enough for you, the State of NC will be stocking the rivers AGAIN the first week in April.
April & May should be a bomb!
If always wanted to try fly fishing, now is a great opportunity.

March Maddness continues:
Fishing March 17 & 18 th, Terry Hester, from South Carolina and his son Casey, from Ohio, we fished the Tuckaseigee River in Dillsboro and then a brief stint at the Tuck in Bryson City. It was Casey's first time fly fishing and he caught on real fast. Terry wanted some brushing up on his technique and that proved to serve him well as he makes our Wall of Fame, Silver Category, for landing a fish over 18". BTW, Casey earned Bronze status for landing a Trout for the first time
The weather has been great and the fishing has been Excellent. Come out and spend some time with a family member or a friend. We'll make memories together!

Today, March 14th, I guided the Thayer family on the Tuckaseigee River, in Dillsboro. Mom (Quincy) and her two boys never fly fished for trout, until today. What a day to start, temps in the 30's and the weather threatening to rain/snow. Didn't stop these Floridian's from putting up a great effort. In fact, all three caught many fish, including Rainbows over 18", which qualified them for my Wall of Fame, SILVER category. Here they are showing their trophy fish

( Come to Jackson County, the Fishing Capital of NC ). We're waiting for you 🐟🐟🐟

Rainbow TroutThis is me holding up a special breed of cut throat trout from Almont Colorado. I was fishing the famous John Taylor River. This river runs past the HARMELS Ranch Resort, in Almont.

AlexThis is my nephew Alex. He currently lives in Nevada with his brother Andrew. Look at the smile on his face. As they say in the commercial, PRICELESS. Can’t wait to go to Nevada and fish with these two guys. I get great pleasure watching someone catch a fish when I’m guiding them, even more than if I was doing the fishing myself.

EddieThis is a good friend and excellent fisherman John M. from Pennsylvania. Fishing has given me the opportunity to make good friends like John. In this photo, we are in Georgia, October 2012. We did not catch as many as we would have liked, but the scenery was breathtaking. We still talk about that trip every time we see each other.
