Virginia Private Water Guide Trips


Do you like fishing for and catching large trout on a daily basis with nobody else around?

Good, because we do too. Everyone enjoys catching large fish, and we are no exception to that aspect of what we love to do every single day here around our Fly Shop. However, a change of pace is good every now and then.

We are now are offering trips up to southwestern Virginia to fish on 10 miles of private water.

These trips will offer great opportunities for the beginner and avid angler alike to catch monstrous rainbow and brown trout on a daily basis and learn to master our own skills.

About our Guide Trips

The rivers are routinely stocked and well managed.  They produce trout of mammoth sizes. With conditions that are suitable for trout most of the year, along with an abundance of aquatic insects, the fish have no choice but to get big fast. Fish routinely will exceed 20 inches in length and trout as large as 30 inches are often seen and caught. These fish simply enjoy breaking 4X tippet.

What to expect?

Expect quality fishing. These trips are great for anglers of all experience levels, and with the size and amount of fish, it is hard not to enjoy yourself. This is also private water, so there will be very little pressure. With beautiful scenery, big fish and very few people around, what else could anyone ask for? Come fish with us.
