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!

Blue Chip Fly Fishing

Ok, I have guided young folks, older folks, handicapped friends, but this one was OMG. Madison Harrington, from Birmingham, Alabama and 4 months pregnant tested my skills. I have to say, she did great fishing the Tuckaseegee River in Webster, as she caught the Slam! Ooh Son. You would never know she was going to have a baby. Her husband, Nate Harrington, is a Meteorologist in Birmingham. ( He gave us the weather report the night before- lol ) Nate was a first time fly fisher but he did very well 🐟🐟🐟🐟🐟🐟.
Can’t wait to see Madison’s baby. A future fly fisher.

Blue Chip Fly Fishing

First time fly fishing, Stephen Hersman, from Florida, joins the MANY fly fishers on the Tuckaseegee River. He braved the cold morning and caught a lot of Browns and Brookies. The Rainbow eluded him all day (lol) Stephen told me that he is a MME fighter. He has been Champion twice in the 155 lbs class. He was a fast learner and did extremely well with his technique. We started out fishing with an indicator rig, then switched to a Steamer set up. He asked if he could try the Czech Nymphing system and he took to it very well. He wants to try dry fly fishing next...
We have it all, here in Western NC.

Blue Chip Fly Fishing

Young and old, the Tuckaseegee River provides a lot of fun fishing. One of the main reasons is N.C. stocks this River very heavily. Pictured here is Mick DuBouis, from Indiana having a great day fishing as he caught the Tuckaseegee Slam ( Brook, Brown, and Rainbow Trout ) He was quick to point out to me that he was 78 years young.
While fishing with his brother in law, Jim Norquest, the stocking truck pulled up and dumped in a Hugh load of trout. We took a moment to watch the crew distribute the fish along the river. Another Gorgeous Day in Western North Carolina 🐟🐟🐟🐟🐟

Blue Chip Fly Fishing

Another Wall of Fame qualifier, Harry Thomas from Florida, caught this beautiful Rainbow Trout at the Tuckaseegee River in Webster, NC. Also shown is his wife, Jude, showing a brook trout which was one of many she caught during our trip. They love coming to Jackson County, not only for the great fishing we have, they also love the small towns in the area. Harry and Jude come here twice a year, and we always have fun fishing together. See you guys in May!! ... See MoreSee Less

Blue Chip Fly Fishing

It’s Fall; and time for the Wall, Wall of Fame. Pictured below are Jim and Ed who not only witnessed the Herd of Elk, but both caught some magnificent Rainbows. In fact, they both qualified for Blue Chip’s Wall of Fame! Yesterday (11/2/18) was priceless. A lasting memory for me as well as my friends. ... See MoreSee Less

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.
