Welcome to Appalachain Angler!

We are proud of our record of establishing fine fly fishing in the Southeastern United States and we work hard to maintain our standards of excellence. Out of respect for our native populations we practice catch and release fishing on all waters and species.

We also fish single “barbless” hooks; this has been our practice since the beginning. We feel that catch and release fishing is imperative to protect our fisheries. We strongly support Trout Unlimited and the Federation of Fly Fishers.

The Appalachian Angler Guides are trained professionals who spend immeasurable hours guiding and fishing our rivers. The guides work exclusively for Appalachian Angler and are renowned for their expertise on the South Holston and Watauga Rivers.

Our guides are committed to ensuring that our guests, both beginning and advanced anglers, have a quality fishing experience.
