Mac Brown loves to teach and it shows. I knew there was much about fly fishing that I don’t know but I got a much deeper understanding after spending a few hours during a recent casting lesson. Mac is an absolute fly fishing encyclopedia and he shared many useful nuggets. If your desire is to take your game to another level, Mac is the guy who can help. In fact, I’ve already spoken to him about another guided trip to help me up my game.

“Mac Brown is undoubtedly one of the best casters in the United States, even more so an angler. He has fished just about anywhere and everywhere. His ability to instruct is superb. He is also by far one of the best dry fly fishermen in the country.”

The Asheville Citizen Times, June, 1996

“Brown has stomach pumped more than 13,000 local trout before releasing them. His daily journals have been translated into a computerized data base. He has spent over 30,000 hours learning the art of fly fishing.”

Chattanooga Times, April, 1993

“Brown is a scientist as well as a fisherman. He is a superb angler and teacher! He carries a briefcase full of aquatic insects and statistical data to use for his programs. He gathers many of these insects with a stomach pump throughout the year to see which insects are the meal of the day. He lectures often to Trout Unlimited,  FFF chapters and other fly fishing conclaves around the country.”

“Guide Mac Brown from Bryson City convinced me to join him for a day on a stream. Dozens of fish later, with the trout running up to 20 inches in length, I had become an enthusiastic convert to the gospel of delayed harvest.”

“It is rare to see someone so dedicated and so in love with their occupation. As beginners in this sport, you motivated us to further ourselves in the art of fly fishing. I was energized by your wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm. I am truly appreciative of the way in which you shared this knowledge.”

  1. The best fly fishing experience. I have been going out with Mac several times for over a year and learn more about fly fishing each trip than any other. Yes, he puts you on great fish but he also teaches you what to do when you are on your own. Mac provides know how on casting, reading water, choosing flies, presentation, setting and more. One of the best instructional days you will have on the water.
