Our guide will pick you up at the time and location of your choosing - typically at your lodgings - and take you to your fishing destination. Arrangements can be made in advance to meet wherever you choose. We provide basic outfits (rod, reel, flyline) and wading gear (stocking-foot waders with felt-soled wading boots) for clients who need them. This can save weight and space for those traveling to the area, although most clients prefer to use their own equipment.
Lunch, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages are provided by your guide on all full-day trips. Your guide will discuss any special dietary needs with you in advance. Your guide will have the tackle, leaders and flies necessary for the trip, with the understanding that any flies lost (to trees or trout) or damaged (by trout teeth, for example) have been purchased by you at $1.75 each. This charge will be appended to the balance of the guide fee due to be charged to the Visa or MasterCard with which you booked the trip.
You need to provide: Fishing licenses are available on-line at http://www.ncwildlife.org/Licensing/HuntingFishingTrappingLicenses.aspx. Residents of North Carolina should select the Comprehensive License option, a $20 license which includes the necessary Trout Stamp and is good for 12 months from the date of purchase. For non-residents a license including the Trout Stamp is $20 for one day. Sunglasses & raingear are recommended. The sunglasses should be polarized (cutting surface glare and allowing easier wading and fish spotting), but are essential eye protection in any case. Raingear makes life more pleasant in an unexpected cloudburst!
COST: The price for this will depend on how many anglers there are in your group (from 1-3). Per person rates: One angler: $350, Two anglers: $300, Three anglers: $250.
NOTE: You must reserve at least two weeks in advance, and contact the guide for instructions and payment at www.altamontanglers.com or call (828)252-9266.
