My wife and I are 'occasional' fly fishing people, but thought "If only half of the reviews are true, we would still enjoy the day." Every friend who looked at our fish exclaimed "And you caught THOSE in NE Georgia?" Marty and Glad were such great hosts, and our guide was extremely helpful. Our guide told me, as we approached the Soque River, "You're going to lose a lot of fish today." I wasn't sure what that meant, but by the end of the day, I knew exactly what he meant What a great day of catching, releasing, and even losing some amazingly huge rainbow trout. My advice to you, bring a much larger fishing net than you usually carry, you will need it!

I've fished several sections of the Soque. They all have big fish and beautiful scenery. What they don't have: host like Marty and Glad. Because of their commitment to serving their customers Fern Valley is the perfect place to revive the human spirit. Exceptional service, exceptional amenities, along with the opportunity to cast to trophy trout in a variety of water types makes Fern Valley the ultimate fly fishing destination. Oh yes! I almost forgot to mention they only allow four people per half mile stretch of river. Try that with some other property owners.

I do my trout fishing out west so when I was invited to fish with my daughter and husband while visiting them in Georgia I was skeptical- I told them I’d bring my lightweight (4 weight) gear. They said .. oh no, bring your 7 weight gear. I just laughed but did as they suggested. OMG...I caught 4 trout, each over 22 inches and fought one for 25 minutes; my daughter caught a HUGE (28”+) rainbow. So big we could not get her in the bucket net. My daughter fought this fish for 40 minutes. Finally the trout tired and we got the fly out and spent the next 10 minutes making sure she was rested and ready to be released. This is a great place. The folks are extremely helpful. We fished the day after Christmas and fished until we were too cold to continue. Over 10 fish caught in total and one incredible rainbow! You should try FERN VALLEY!

Let me start by saying that I've never fly fished...ever! I've fished before but not on a fly rod. I found Fern Valley on Trip Advisor. After reading reviews and doing other independent research, I decided to pull the trigger for me and 3 guests. Glad was patient with me answering questions, re-scheduling dates, and accommodating my group from 4 down to 2. Jason Tannehill was our guide and I could not have been more pleased. After a 20 min tutorial, he had me fly fishing. In my first 20 mins, I caught my first fish! We fished the meadow and had it all to ourselves. I lost count but landed over 13 fish. I recommend this place to anyone who wants to catch large trout. One of my favorite parts of the day was being able to take the fish out of the net and release it. An amazing day! Thanks to Marty and Glad for providing such a great product at reasonable prices!

Super value. There are a ton of fish, lots of different type areas to try different patterns, owners are VERY accommodating and welcoming. My guide Kyle, was excellent, very patient, super interested in me catching fish, and a very friendly and interesting young man. He was very helpful with tips and suggestions. I would highly recommended Fern Valley and Kyle even to the most experienced fly fisherman(woman).
