Atlanta Fly Fishing Meetup Group at Nacoochee Bend

Unicoi Outfitters recently hosted the Atlanta Fly Fishing Meetup Group at Nacoochee Bend. The group's founder Justin Fuller wrote:

"The meetup group is about helping new people learn how to fly fish, and meet some friends while doing it... The meetup organizers are not professionals, but we do our best to get people catching fish... By getting them out on the water, with professional guides, and hooking into big fish... may make all the difference for some of these folks. The meetup group promises to continue to recruit new fly fishers in the North GA area!!!!
"Jeff Durniak would be proud with all the split shot that Jake had me using to get into that big 24"er... 4.5 lbr... Biggest fish I have ever caught!!!!!!!!! I didn't hold it close enough to the camera though ;)
"This really is a fantastic section of the Chattahoochee River... Unicoi Outfitters is running a Top Notch Guide Service out of their Helen and Blue Ridge Stores. If anyone, EVER, has the opportunity to fish the Nacoochee Bend or other private water that Unicoi Outfitters has in North GA, they should take it!!!!

"Thanks again for the best Sunday afternoon I have had in a long time!!!"

Thanks for the photos and report, Justin - glad y'all had a good time!
