We had a blast with our guide Daniel. He was a good-humored and patient coach for these two beginners. He taught us about the fly rods and lines and lures, showed us how to cast, and then took us into the Cartecay River. My husband hooked a giant trout (probably 8 pounds) right off the bat, but lost him after... More

We booked half day wading trip for two as a birthday trip for my boyfriend. Neither of us have fly fished. I've never fished, ever-at all. Chase was our guide and a great teacher. Very patient and personable. He had everything we needed. We enjoyed our time on the water and together. I'm super excited because I caught two fish!... More

James was fantastic. Not only was the fly fishing enjoyable, he taught me a bunch about the local eco system, and what to look for when trout fishing. I would highly recommend them, and I am planning on going again on our next trip to north Georgia. Thank you!

We went fishing with Reel'em In Guide Service's guide named Danny and he was very enjoyable on the water. He worked very hard and was constantly patiently teaching us how to improve our fly fishing skills. Going fishing on their private waters on the Cartecay River was very exciting. We had constant activity with fish hitting our flies. Even the... More

My son and I rendezvoused in N Ga for two days of fishing. James got us off to a fabulous start. He's a great teacher! Got us out in the water for an exhilarating couple of hours. The rainbows were unbelievably powerful, and challenging enough to hook us. We shall be back. Thanks James for a memorable experience.

So my wife has always wanted to try fly fishing. So I setup the beginner class with James. We had a blast! He worked with us on casting and understanding the rods / reels / line setup and how it all works together. He showed us different flies and variation in size and weight. He explained how to fish for... More

My 11 yr old son and I enjoyed the beginner's special. Our guide, Larry, really focused on making the morning educational and fun. The fishing was exceptional with both of us putting large trout in the net. If you're looking for great fishing with great people, then give James and his family at Reel Em In Guide Service a call.

My son-in-law and I got a day for Christmas. It was a great day. We fished Noontootla creek and the Cartakey River. A lot of rain before the trip - kept the totals down but we both enjoyed the day. Hooked the biggest fish I ever had but lost him at Noontootla. Oh well a great fish story. I would... More
