MountainBound Fly Guides guide service has evolved from our previous full service business, Watauga River Fly Shop, purchased in early 2016. The fly shop was extremely successful, as was the guide service. In spring of 2019, the state changed their plans to widen the highway to then include acquiring our fly shop, and rather than feeling the devastation of that new twist, it has allowed us to optimize our guide service! We have expanded our guide service to include different types of fishing (trout, smallmouth and even musky), and to offer various specialty trip packages. Our goal is to meet the needs of all types of fly fishing adventurers, those experienced or those just wanting to learn.
Our guides are ready to get you out on the water, to enjoy all that nature in the High Country has to offer, and provide you with an experience you will never forget! We are open to any suggestions you may have to customize your trip, so feel free to mention those to us. Let us share our passion for the sport with you!
