Smoky Mountain Angler is a small but specialized fly fishing shop located in Gatlinburg. They have both a retail store and a guide service. I am a pretty advanced fly fishing guy so I did my research and went out on my own. That being said, a ten minute conversation with their staff and it was clear I would use... More

Five of us went on the guide trip with Brad and Kevin. When we got there in the morning, we got to talking, and I told them we were going to Cherokee, NC for the next 2 days. They suggested, if we wanted to catch big trout, we could drive to Cherokee (instead of fishing in the State Park, Gatlinburg)... More

While visiting the Smoky's I like to take a few ventures in the national park to fish for native brook trout, and like everywhere else, a license is required. I was directed towards The Smokey Mountain Angler in Winery Plaza just off the main street. They offer a nice collection of quality gear from flies, vests, waist packs and hats... More
