" After  several years of fly fishing with numerous guides I was fortunate enough to fish with James Johnsey and I finally learned what it meant to fish with a true professional that loves what he does.  James knows the rivers like the back of his hand and can put you on the fish.  If things get slow James is going to pull over and try another fly, change things up, and work tirelessly all day to make sure you are catching fish. And to make things even better James is also a lot of fun, he always celebrates when you catch a fish and will commiserate with you when "the big one"  gets away.  I always take advantage of his expertise and guidance and come away a better fisherman. If you want a great day on the river with a knowledgeable and fun guide I highly recommend James. "

"Over the past 7-years I had wonderful fishing trips with James Johnsey.  It started with James being one of five guides we had for the week.  Next trip we had James for 2-days as our guide.  The next 3 trips we insisted on James as our exclusive guide for the week.  He has intensity and knowledge of the sport.  Good guy to hang out with and fish for days on end.  I look forward to fishing with James in Tennessee.

"I have fishedand worked with James Johnsey for over ten yearsand am honored to call him my friend. He guided many of the guests at our fishing lodge and every single one came back safe, better informed, and happy! His repeat request rate was always over the top. James is truly one of the great ones and you owe it to yourself to fish with him. I always will!"
