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".

Ladies Day -
"There isn't a better way to spend a day with friends than with a SharperBites flyfishing adventure.  We all caught fish!  Some of us had never fished before and some us were repeat guests."      Susie & The Fl Gang

Grant shared a day with Madison fishing for trophy trout on the headwaters of the Toccoa River where Madison proceeded
to catch this 30" 10.8 lb Rainbow for her first catch.
 While Madison caught the biggest Grant had an exceptional day
 with the most fish caught.  He is quite an accomplished fly fisher.
What a day -   a trip they both will long cherish and remember

While everyone wants to land the BIG ONE,
sometimes its all about looking at the beauty in a small
fish hoping that years from now it will become that
BIG ONE . . .  just enjoy the day for whatever it brings.. .

A GREAT DAY on Nootootla Creek with Grant Fitts.
 Grant has turned into quite a fly fisher and  has developed
all the skills to pursue this hobby.  Now our goal is to find  
and land that big Brown trout that  has eluded us.
                             July 9, 2014






  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!

  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".
 

Sometimes fly fishing is all about the beauty of nature all around us.



It was a couples day with Susan and Jason -  
Newbies from Florida hit the waters
 to try their hand at fly fishing -  Both caught fish but
Susan's Rainbow seen here was the catch of the day.  
June 19, 2014



Grant returned for another fishing lesson.  This time his goal was to catch a Brook and a Brown trout.  He succeeded getting the Brook but the Brown has eluded him once again.  But he will be back to try on another day.  So glad Grant still wants to fish with his Granny Nanny.
