About your Guide -  Natalie grew up river and deep-sea fishing in Florida with her father and took up fly fishing as a hobby in 2000 to relieve the stress of her day job.  Falling in love with the sport, the rivers, creeks and the quaintness of Blue Ridge, the hobby that began as stress reliever soon became Natalie's passion to share with others.  Combining her love for cooking and fly-fishing, Natalie created SharperBites to fulfill her vision of the ultimate fun for a relaxing and unique fly-fishing experience while escaping to the beautiful mountains of Blue Ridge, GA known as the Trout Capital of Georgia,

Natalie with her disarming personality, sense of humor, and expertise provide the perfect learning experience for your fly-fishing adventure while relaxing in Blue Ridge.  And to remember  your fly-fishing experience each guest receives a CD of photographs - memories to last a lifetime and share with family and friends.                        

Call today and book your trip!  All is equipment is provided.  Just bring your fishing license with a trout stamp, polarized sunglasses, hat/sun visor, (2) pair of sport socks, rain jacket, a change of clothes and long underwear (if fishing during the winter months).

I
 booked a SharperBites flyfishing trip for my wife's Birthday.  She has been wanting to try fly fishing for awhile.  The fishing was great but the gourmet lunch unbelievable. Natalie's attention to the dining details is exactly what  my  wife  enjoys!   We  both are hooked and will be back. We love Blue Ridge".

A fisherman once said- "You want to catch a fish, then you want to catch many fish, then you want to catch bigger fish.  Now that I have done those I can just relax and enjoy fishing".



How can Ralph Artigliere, past President of Blue Ridge TU Chapter be smiling with a broken Sage rod in his hand?  
Because a BIG FISH broke it  . . .    and Sage has a lifetime warranty! 
It was a GREAT DAY watching this expert maneuver Noontootla Creek.  Sharing tips back and forth  was a big highlight of the day. 
   Thanks Ralph!

It was a GREAT Spring day of fishing!
