We take a unique approach to the guide service business by offering a high quality experience at a price point that is affordable, as compared to similarly experienced guide services within North Carolina and surrounding areas. As a former park ranger, Jesse has fished all publicly accessible streams in the area over the course of the last 20 years. He also has several years of formal experience guiding fly fishing wade trips to both the inexperienced and the experienced client. We cater to a broader audience than many other guide services, we offer solo guide trips to group guide trips, including families, and we are even able to provide a safe and fun learning activity for children.
Additionally, unlike other guide services, we have private access to one of the most prolific wild trout streams in Tennessee. We teach diverse techniques of fly fishing, including European style competition nymphing. We will craft the guide trip to be specific to your level of experience and interests.
We are well connected in the region and are able to not only be your fly fishing guide, but happy to provide restaurant, campground, and lodging recommendations to make your trip easier if you are coming from out of town.
At Tolliver’s Guide Service, fishing is not just a job – but it has been a lifelong hobby for us. With that we are able to offer you quality merged with affordability. We can confidently assure that if you join us for a guide trip, you will catch fish. Our clients always do!
