About Tolliver's Guide Service
We take a unique approach to the guide service business by offering a high quality experience at a price point that is affordable, as compared to similarly experienced guide services within North Carolina and the surrounding areas. As a former park ranger, Jesse has fished all publicly accessible streams in the area over the course of 20 years. He also has several years of formal experience guiding wade trips for both the experienced and unexperienced client. We cater to a broader audience than many other guide services, we offer solo wade trips to group trips, including families, and we are even able to provide a safe and fun learning activity for children. Additionally, unlike other guide services, we have private access to one of the most prolific wild trout streams in Tennessee. We teach diverse techniques of fly fishing, including European style competitive nymphing. We will craft a guide trip to be specific to your level of experience and interests.

I took my grandsons and their dad fly fishing for two reasons: first: they needed to learn the technique of fly fishing; and next, they needed to get "hooked" on the feel of a fish on the line. AND, when you go fishing with Jesse,...More

Thanks for your review Oscar! That particular dry fly is strong poison on trout just about anywhere! Give me a call when you come and visit next year. I can put you on large browns and native brook trout next time.

Jesse was outstanding as a guide. I took my two sons and they each had a great time. Jesse was patient and was able to work with my 12 year old to catch three 10-12 trout.
