Softcover, 256 pages

Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP) has over 800 miles of wild-trout waters, many of which provide exceptional fly fishing for brook, brown, and rainbow trout. In this comprehensive guidebook to the park’s best fishing, locals Ian and Charity Rutter share best access areas, seasonal strategies, and best tactics and techniques for making the most out of your park adventure. They also include detailed information about the hatches and best fly patterns to use throughout the year.

From accessible fisheries like Little River to the back-of-beyond isolation of Hazel Creek to such remote high-country hike-ins as Ekaneetlee Creek, where the wild trout have scarcely seen an artificial fly, Ian and Charity Rutter’s encyclopedic guide to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a fly-fisher’s essential.— James R. Babb, editor emeritus, Gray's Sporting Journal, and author of Fish Won't Let Me Sleep

The Great Smoky Mountains offer some of the finest pristine and uncrowded trout fishing in North America. I have mixed feelings about this book because it will introduce more people to a world-class resource; but on the other hand there are endless miles of rivers and creeks to explore. I can't think of a better team to write a complete guide on this region than Ian and Charity Rutter. With decades of experience guiding and fishing there, superb photographs, and eminently readable and lively prose, they've written a guide to this region that anyone who has the slightest interest in exploring this national treasure must own. — Tom Rosenbauer, The Orvis Company

This new guidebook from veteran guides Ian and Charity Rutter offers an abundance of hard-won knowledge about fly fishing for the wild trout found in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and throughout Southern Appalachia. From selecting flies and equipment to highlighting the region’s fish, streams, and proven angling techniques, including a chapter on Tenkara, this thorough and delightful compendium is one to be treasured by both seasoned and novice anglers alike. — Ron Ellis, author of Yonder: Tales from an Outdoor Life and Cogan’s Woods
