Fly Shop's New Fly Display

Check out the new fly display in the Wesser General Store and Fly Shop. With cold beer, flies, fishing accessories and snacks, it's the most convenient shop on the way to the Upper Nantahala or any of the area's other great streams. The info board (partially visible on the wall) has the up-to-date scoop on what's hot and what's working, and of course you can hire a guide or get some casting instruction too.

High Water Alternative-

Ever notice that when the water is high the fishing isn't so great? Some folks try to fish anyway, while others just go home. For me high water means its time to put down the rod and pick up the paddle. Last week's high water events made for some poor fishing but some great kayaking. Check out these photos from our adventures on the West Prong, Linville, and the Green!

JEB's New Column

Hey fishing folks! We just wanted to let you know that our "Man in Waders" JEB Hall now has a weekly fishing column in Bryson City's own Smoky Mountain Times!

It's no secret that JEB's got decent chops. His book, Western North Carolina Fly Guide is already in its third run. We look forward to reading about his local expertise on one of our best natural treasures!
