Where We Fish

Blane calls the rivers of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia where he targets predatory fish with large flies. This unique style of fishing is something Blane has pioneered.

James River – So much history here. Ends up in the chesapeake bay. Starts in the blue ridge mountains. No dams in the sections I fish. Entirely in Virginia. Musky, Smallmouth, Some catfish, Some large mouth, Stripers to Shad. A true destination for Musky and Large Smallmouth.

New – Flows true north through the oldest mountains in the world. Second oldest river in the world, above sea level. World class small mouth and Musky fishery.

Jackson – One of a few tailwaters in Virginia harboring Trout. A sustaining population of Wild Rainbow Trout, and Wild Brown Trout. Gives you a unique experience in more of a Western style environment. Very reminiscent of a rocky mountain  blue ribbon stream.

Stanton – Harbors a unique striped bass fishery in the spring. One of 2 successful landlocked striped bass reproduction ecosystems in the country. Seasonal migratory phenomenon. Most fish travel 80-100 miles to spawn. A truly unique experience.

Tennessee Tailwaters –  An opportunity to catch a fish of a lifetime. These rivers rival any trophy trout destination in the world. We predominately fish these giants in the fall with large streamers. This is a trip for the seasoned veteran trout fisherman.
