For the past four months I have had the pleasure of fishing and exploring the Duck and Buffalo rivers in middle Tennessee with James.  We have been fishing mainly forsmallmouth bass, my favorite fish.  He has opened my eyes to the incredible and virtually untapped fishery in some of the most beautiful surroundings imaginable.  He has brought all of his skills to Tennessee that he learned and honed from his many years guiding and fishing out west.  I am amazed at his ability to read the water and his skill on the oars to maintain perfect boat control in order to put you in just the right spot to castyour fly to all the prime spots.  He is an outstanding fisherman and flycaster and is an excellent instructor.  He has tremendous energy and enthusiasm and every trip is fun and a great learning experience.  He has very good equipment and has comfortable watercraft to fish out of that are well suited to the rivers and streams you will be fishing.  Together we have developed several bugs in the right colors and sizes for the fish in these rivers and streams which he will share with you and teach you how to fish.

I invite you to book a trip with James.  Tap into the hundreds of miles of rivers and streams middle Tennesee has to offer.  Experience the raw natural beauty of our home state and fish for wild smallmouth, largemouth, and spotted bass, brown and rainbow trout, big stripers, sunfish, and even muskies.  It doesn’t matter if you are a novice or pro, young or old you are in for a real treat.  He’s the best guide I’ve ever fished with!
