Wade Trips

Our guided wading trips, out of Hendersonville North Carolina, are an exceptional way to really hone your fly fishing skills and work small stretches of water for individual trout. With our professional team and these outstanding trout waters, a trophy Brown Trout might be just one cast away!

Our goal is to provide you a seamless, enjoyable experience from start to finish! Visit our rivers page to pick which guided fishing experience sounds best for your party or have our team help steer you in a direction. Upon first greeting, our guides will work directly with you to decide which waters to fish and which trip is best to meet your fishing objectives.

A typical day with Up-Close Outfitters Fly Fishing will start with the guide picking his clients up and shuttling them to the river. If this is just not practical we will agree upon a convenient meeting spot. We typically spend up to 8 hours fishing on a full-day wading trip. In this time, we work closely with your party on mastering techniques, reading the waters, and landing your catch. On many of our trips we also provide a hot first-class lunch.

Our Private Waters

The Big Hungry Creek is our pride and joy for consistent, productive Rainbow Trout fishing. Up-close Outfitters Fly Fishing has stocked about 100 trout per acre of stream to guarantee a trip to remember. This fly fishing river is truly remarkable with its scenic wilderness and seclusion. A first-class hot meal really makes this trip one of North Carolina’s top trout trips.
