First, James was great to deal with setting up our trip. He returned my calls and emails promptly, and was so friendly. Booking our trip was easy, efficient and enjoyable. We... More

Super easy to book straight thru the owner James. Very organized to make every thing run smoothly, I appreciated his attention to the details of his business. He also made a super match with my guide, Dan (Dink). We ended up adding another day because it was just so fun and easy. Learned a lot. Caught a lot. They have... More

Everyone these guys are quite simply the best. I fished with them several times last year and could only write one review because the trips were too close together to post an individual review for each trip. That being said, I just called and booked 5 trips for this spring. I'd book 10 if my schedule would allow. Do yourself... More

We had the BEST time fly fishing! I booked the Beginners Special trip as a Birthday present and it will be hard to top next year. James was so great to work with for booking; patient and helpful with any questions and concerns. Our guide Daniel knocked it out of the park! He took us to an awesome stream, where... More

We had a blast with our guide Daniel. He was a good-humored and patient coach for these two beginners. He taught us about the fly rods and lines and lures, showed us how to cast, and then took us into the Cartecay River. My husband hooked a giant trout (probably 8 pounds) right off the bat, but lost him after... More

We booked half day wading trip for two as a birthday trip for my boyfriend. Neither of us have fly fished. I've never fished, ever-at all. Chase was our guide and a great teacher. Very patient and personable. He had everything we needed. We enjoyed our time on the water and together. I'm super excited because I caught two fish!... More

James was fantastic. Not only was the fly fishing enjoyable, he taught me a bunch about the local eco system, and what to look for when trout fishing. I would highly recommend them, and I am planning on going again on our next trip to north Georgia. Thank you!

We went fishing with Reel'em In Guide Service's guide named Danny and he was very enjoyable on the water. He worked very hard and was constantly patiently teaching us how to improve our fly fishing skills. Going fishing on their private waters on the Cartecay River was very exciting. We had constant activity with fish hitting our flies. Even the... More

My son and I rendezvoused in N Ga for two days of fishing. James got us off to a fabulous start. He's a great teacher! Got us out in the water for an exhilarating couple of hours. The rainbows were unbelievably powerful, and challenging enough to hook us. We shall be back. Thanks James for a memorable experience.
