I was invited on a trip to Vogel State Park in N. GA. 3 of us are looking for a 1/2 day guide to take us wade or bank fishing somewhere in this area between Jun 13-18.
We are total newbies at flyfishing and have no gear. We have tried Onicoi Outfitters but they are booked for a while. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Check the shops in Brevard and Cherokee, NC. Not a far drive based on where you’ll be.

Nantahala Outfitters or other shops in that area too.

Alpharetta Outfitters and the Fish Hawk do guide trips up north as well.

Henry Cowen is a friend of mine and an excellent fly fisher & guide. He guides on Lake Lanier for Striped Bass and other species. That may not be the type of fly fishing that you want to try, but perhaps send him a message and ask about other guides. Most of these guides know of one another and perhaps he can get you headed in the right direction.

Of course, if you've never caught a Striped Bass, on fly or any other tackle, that would be a worthwhile trip to make! ;)

Tell him that Jim Hester gave you this information. :giggle:
