Angler Adoption Agencies - 10/26/20

As fall trouting kicks into high gear,  our newer fly fishers can really benefit from club membership.  Groups like the local Trout Unlimited chapters, the Georgia Women Flyfishers, the Atlanta Flyfishing Club, student clubs, 

and online communities like North GA Trout Online are filled with a mix of angling vets and neophytes.  You can find new fishing buddies, get some free lessons (from casting to fly tying), discover new hotspots, and receive hot intel from members just finishing their trips.  

Some of these “angler adoption agencies” are listed here:






You know, fishing buddies or older family members  were the folks who nurtured us during our rookie years of fly flinging.  YouTube is great, but it still finishes a distant  second to a talented buddy.  

Whether you Zoom or meet streamside and converse from a safe distance, the buddy system is a keeper.  Join a club, find new friends, and catch more trout this fall.  That recipe worked for us at Unicoi Outfitters and we’re sure it will work for you.  Good luck this fall!
