Guided Fly Fishing Trips on the Tuckasegee River

Posted by on February 18, 2013

It was a fairly busy week for us here at Hookers Fly Shop and Guide Service, which  is something that can be rare in the months of Jan. and Feb.   I had the pleasure of guiding Brian M. on Thursday for a 3/4 day wade trip on the Tuck D.H.  Brian put around a dozen or so decent fish in the net and had several more LDRs.   It was a cold but very beautiful day to be on the water.

On Friday, Clint guided Circe T. and husband on a half day on the upper section of the Tuckasee Delayed Harvest.  They had a fairly good morning with several nice fish in the net including one big brook trout.

Clint and I were both out again for a half day float trip on Sat. with a group  of four from Atlanta, Ga.   It wasn’t a great day as far as the weather with temps hovering in the low to mid 30s with high winds and snow.  Everyone managed to get hooked up and land a few fish.  Fun day on the water with a great group of guys regardless of the weather.

Hot flies for the week were:  #8 Olive/Black Hot Head Marvins, #10 Yellow/Orange Y2K, #14 Orange Thread Frenchie and #14-16 Rainbow Warriors.
