Hookers Fly Shop is located in Historic Downtown Sylva, minutes away from the Tuckasegee River and in the heart of the Western North Carolina Fly Fishing Trail.  We are the closest outfitter and guide service to the world famous Tuckasegee Delayed Harvest section.

We have a wide range of Packs, Vests, Lumbar Packs, Backpacks etc.

We offer classes that are free to the public. We work with TU and other various organizations to bring fly fishing to all that want to learn. Our shop is conveniently located near WCU, Dillsboro, Cherokee, Whittier, SONY DSCWaynesville, Bryson City, Nantahala and just a short drive from Asheville.  Our guide service covers most of Western North Carolina including Cherokee, The Smokies and the Western North Carolina Fly Fishing Trail.  We offer both wade and float trips for trout and smallmouth bass.  You can choose from a half day, 3/4 day or full day or if you are the more adventurous type we also offer overnight backcountry fly fishing trips to remote areas of the Smokies and Nantahala National Forest.
