The Winter fishing has been fantastic so far! Temperatures have been relatively mild in the Southeast. Dress warm and you'll be good to go. Big fish are being caught by our clients. Hot patterns have been tiny zebras midges, soft hackles, streamers both large and small, and egg patterns. We have also seen BWO's, Winter caddis, and midges hatching on top. There have even been some sulphurs over in TN. The streams are always less crowded in the Winter and Big Trout can be caught. Both float and wade trips have been producing good numbers and quality fish. TN, NC, and GA have all been fishing well. It's a great time to get out on an adventure while the rivers aren't crowded!
Beast Coast Anglers has a full team of professional guides, but spots for guided trips in the Spring are filling up fast. That is especially true of the private water trips. If you're interested in one of those options book now or call for more info. (828) 318-4065

Beast Coast Anglers will be hosting a fly tying event at the Brew Pump in West Asheville on Wednesday February 8th at 7pm. Beginners to advanced are welcome. This will be an open tie so bring what you like. Materials and instructions will also be provided if you want to just show up. These events are great for meeting other anglers in the community and celebrating all things fly fishing!
There are some new lids and slaps up on the website if you're in need of more squatch in your life! That all for now! Keep on fishin' on!
