Group and Corporate Fly Fishing Trips

Group and Corporate Fly Fishing Trips

We have run group and corporate fly fishing trips since 1988 in the Bryson City, NC region. The Wulff School and Orvis schools are the only other two in the nation that have run similar numbers since that time. We have worked many major Fortune 500 companies during that time which include Coke, BMW America, Georgia Power and Light, and many others. These can be tailored to facilitate Team Building for large groups. The outline varies for these programs with a combination of Team Building and growth of tactics for fly fishing. We customize these excursions to meet the goals of your group. We have had several top professionals of psychology create outlines for these Team Building programs which sets up an environment second to none in the nation!

The programs are custom built and tailored specifically to each group. They may include a school atmosphere for casting instruction, waded fly fishing, fly fishing float trips, hooking and playing fish, landing fish, and many other tactics for an on the stream immersion into the sport of fly fishing. We often see these same folks on the stream many years later because they end up taking the sport of fly fishing to whole new level for their journey. It is always a special moment for me to see clients from many decades ago on the water that we introduced to the sport of fly fishing. It makes us realize that we are slowly converting folks to have a new passion for taking up this incredible sport of fly fishing!

All gear and top notch instruction is provided for these custom programs. Prices vary accordingly to the number of people attending. These must be planned out well in advance so give us a call to discuss.
