We specialize in fly fishing the waters of the Nantahala River and are privileged to be able to offer guided float trips down the Lower Nantahala, which are hard to come by.

Selecting Nantahala on the Fly would provide you with a lifetime of knowledge of the area’s aquatic life and the workings of the river’s ecosystem. A lot of factors in the environment can influence how a fish behaves such as weather, water levels, air temperature, timing of insect hatches, and much more.
