I am from south Georgia and have decided to change from bass and bream to the famed North Georgia Trout. I have flyfished off and on for the past 10 or so years, but would like to get more serious about it. I have found a place to stay in Ellijay and would like to find a guide to help me catch some fish. I recently tried Curtis Switch on Sept.30 and Oct 1., but could only catch chubs and finger sized trout. I don't want to get discouraged and would like to actually catch a decent sized trout. Maybe a trophy stream and guide would be my best bet. I hear the Noontoola has some good stretches for the right price. I would greatly appreciate some advice.
Delayed Harvest is just around the corner starting Nov1, so all you'll need to do is drive up to 285/75 and fish the hooch.. Call Unicoi Outfitters for fishing the Noontoola.. Quiet setting with some good fish..

You might consider mixing the two - warmwater and flyfishing - and getting your instruction a little closer to home. Callaway Gardens has wonderful guides - in fact, Kent Edmonds (http://www.flyfishga.com/) is spectacular. To keep your instruction close to home and learn more about stream fly fishing, you might get him to take you out on the Flint River.

If you are interested in BIG trout; I can help. I work at Highland outfitters and am a guide for Blackhawk, on the Soque river. Our fish range from 3lbs. up to 12lbs+, with lengths over 30". Needless to say, it's a trophy stream, and as such we practice catch and release. If your interested Please call me at 770-363-4830, or visit www.blackhawkflyfishing.com . Thanks and good luck,
