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

I’m getting caught up on all my fishing reports, now that I have a day off. Our rivers have really been productive this month, especially in Jackson County, on the Tuckaseegee River. It continued to produce on Tuesday, April 10th for my client, William (Bill ) Taldone, from Palm Harbor, Florida. In fact, he caught a trophy size Rainbow and a beautiful Brown, qualifying him for a Wall of Fame , GOLD status. We fished the upper section of the Tuck in the am, then fished the lower half in the afternoon, netting over 30 trout. Bill has a 12 year old son that he wants me to instruct. They will be back in November. Can’t wait to see the boy catch a bunch of fish, then ask dad to buy him fly fishing equipment. The beat goes on. ... See MoreSee Less

Blue Chip Fly Fishing

The Masters Golf Tournament just completed another memorable event. Normally, I am glued to the TV watching every shot, however- this year, I had the pleasure to guide Terry Hester for the third year in a row. This year, he brought plenty family members: His two sons, Casey & Curtis. Also his son-in-law, Kyle & his daughter, Olivia. Terry qualified for our Wall of Fame again. This time catching a 18” Brookie. Casey also joins his father in the WoF, qualifying with a beautiful Brown. The day continued to be a good one with Kyle, Olivia and Curtis catching trout on a fly rod for the first time, also qualifying them for the WoF. Truly a “Master” performance by the Hester Family. ... See MoreSee Less

Blue Chip Fly Fishing

All the way from Homestead, Florida, both Mike Adams and his son, Benjamin, never fly fished before. On Monday, March 26 th, they had their chance. Even though it was a nasty cold day, they both caught trout while fishing the famous Tuckaseegee River in Webster, NC. Because it was their first trout on a fly rod, they qualify for BRONZE status, on our Wall of Fame. ... See MoreSee Less

We have another Wall of Famer! Newest recipient is Chuck Harrell. Chuck and I took a trip to Tennessee to fish the South Holston (wade) then float the Watauga. These two rivers were on Chucks Bucket list. First two days on the Holston were absolutely beautiful. We caught plenty of wild fish. We were hoping the weather would cooperate one more day, but no deal. Cold, raining, and windy. Cheese and Crackers. Couldn’t be any worse. However, we started the float. First couple of hours were very slow, very little fish caught. Then after lunch, the weather broke and the sun actually came out and the water began to come down. Not to long after that, Chuck hooked into a real nice Brown. We estimated that it was about 20-22”. We had a great 3 days together, but that fish was the highlight of the trip. Couldn’t happen to a better guy! NOTE: Fishing has been spectacular. Especially since NC has stocked our rivers again. Give me a call and plan your fly fishing adventure ... 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.
