What's Included in Guided Trips

What's Included

Terminal Tackle*

Included in the price of every trip is all terminal tackle including tippet, split shot, leaders, and strike indicators.

Wading Gear*

Our premium waders and wading boots from Simms will keep you dry (and help you stay upright) in case you decide to leave the boat for some selective wading.

Depending on current water levels, our guides will row you in a Stealth Craft Drift boat or NRS Otter Raft. These boats are roomy, comfortable, and designed specifically for fly fishing.

What to Wear

The weather in the North Georgia, Tri- State area is unpredictable and always changing. It is important to head out on the water prepared for the full range of conditions.

Light, packable rain jacket.


Breathable pants or shorts.


Sandals or water shoes with good traction (like Tevas or Chacos).

Wet-wading sandals or wading boots with guard socks.


Sun hat and polarized sunglasses.

Spring and Fall


Base layer or long underwear that wicks moisture and dries quickly.

Insulating mid layer (fleece, down, or synthetic).
