Went out on the Soque with Gordon on a cold, windy day. We were on fish right away, and it never slowed down. We all laughed and had a great time through the day. Gordon is patient and even had a hack like me catching fish. There is no need to look for another guide, Gordon is the only way... More

My two young adult sons and I were looking to shake the New Hampshire winter blues with some late winter fly fishing in the beautiful mountains of Western NC. Little did we know, however, mother nature wanted to bring a little NH winter weather to Western NC during our stay. We saw a day in the mid 40’s, a day... More

It was such a pleasure to spend 4 days with you and your family on the water. I definitely won't forget that anytime soon. I feel like I have definitely gained a friend for many many years to come after that experience. I really appreciate you coming Tony, can't wait till next time! Gordon More

Gordon thanks for a awesome day of fishing, and for putting us on lots of fish. I highly recommend Gordon and Turning Stones Fly Fishing, amazing water all over the Franklin, NC area.

We had a large group on a busy day in the mountains-Gordon and Justin Anderson did a great job of putting us on fish around the pressure of Holiday weekend. We had experienced and inexperienced fishers in our group- We all caught nice fish all day. I recommend Gordon any time you are in Western NC.

He was so helpful in getting us all set up and consistently on fish throughout the day. Our group was a mixture of beginners and experienced fly fisherman, and he did a great job in assisting all...

I have had the good fortune of having Gordon as a guide twice. He is an excellent teacher and has put us on the fish both times. Even when the river was low and there was plenty of pressure. We were able to take what he taught us and be reasonably successful on our own. Not bad for rookies! Thanks... More

My 14 and 11 year old sons and I traveled to N.C. for two days of fly fishing and booked Gordon Vanderpool, the owner, for one day and one of his great guides for the second.

Justin made every effort to see that we enjoyed the experience! Everything was provided. He was quick to tie on a new fly or to net our catches. He obviously loved the outdoors and teaching novices how to fly fish. Highly recommended!

Our family booked a half day fly fishing excursion. Our children range from 7 to 12. Some of our children love fishing, and others had never fished but were willing to give it a try. We were all new to fly fishing. Gordon was very helpful in scheduling us with the right guide and on the right type of excursion... More

This was a wonderful experience. Gordon Vanderpool, our guide and owner, was wonderful. He showed great patience with my husband and me as this was our first time fly fishing. I would highly recommend this company for any fly fishing expeditions in western North Carolina.
