I am an avid angler and outdoorsman. I have been fishing for smallmouth bass most of my life, plying the best rivers in Southwestern Virginia, Southern West Virginia, Eastern Tennessee and North Carolina. In 2013 , I was able to fulfill my life-long dream of starting my own charter company and introducing clients and friends to numerous opportunities the waters of the Southern Appalachian’s can offer. I am a strong advocate of catch-and-release, and we constantly strive to protect and preserve the fisheries that we are so fortunate to have in this region.
