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!

May trout fishing has been outstanding!
The Tuckaseegee River in Webster ( Jackson County, NC ) has been on fire 🔥. Here are some of the guys with Trophy fish. Steve Sheaf with a beautiful Brown, and John Heussner & Alan Hofmeister with gorgeous Rainbows. If you are thinking of fishing in our Delayed Harvest waters, you need to be here before the first Saturday in June, ( June 2 nd ) then you may keep up to 7 trout per day. If you want to witness something special, come fishing that Saturday. We are very lucky to have a resource like this! 🐟🐟

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

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.
