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).

      Bringing a change of clothes is always  a
 
  good idea, just in case you get wet !

 

Natalie grows her own lettuce and tomatoes during the
Spring and Summer seasons. She is known for her gourmet
summer salad with glazed pecans, mandarin oranges,
avacado, dried cranberries-   All served rivers

At SharperBites, lunch
at the river's edge  is all part of the experience!  Choose from a boxed "lite lunch" or a "full gourmet lunch"   at the river's edge.

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".


The beauty of fly fishing is all around us.  
Stop and make sure you enjoy all that nature brings.  
It's not always about the FISH!



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.

Ladies, give up your sandals - try a pair of wading
boots and fly fishing for a new hobby.  A sport for couples
or the whole family to enjoy together.



This "Florida  Flat Lander" Lindsay, just found the mountain
 roads and drive from Helen a little too winding  -  more than
she could handle or stomach  LOL. 
 She started each morning off with R&R before
casting her way into the river and stardom.



The SMILE says it all  for this NEWBIE Fly fisher.  Corey, (age 16) was treated by his parent for a trip with SharperBites and was thrilled when he landed this 28" 9 lb rainbow.  The morning started with learning techniques and skills.  Corey was able to put everything he learned to hook several other trophy trout which eluded the catch but made the day a success when he landed this trophy trout.     September 15, 2014

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.. .

  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!
