Kid-Friendly Smoky Mountain Fly Fishing Guides

At Take Kids Fly, we strive to include listings for every manner of service and product available to enhance the fly fishing experience of kids. One of our category listings is for Kid Friendly Guides, which is self explanatory: it includes state by state listings of guides that wish to promote themselves as being welcoming to kids.  One such guide is Eugene Shuler, who operates Smoky Mountain Fly Fishing Guides in North Carolina.

Eugene emailed us to let us know about his guide business:

I have two children ages 6 and 9, and we spend everyday possible in the outdoors. They love to fly fish, and we hire guides when we visit new places. It’s tough to find a guide service that will let them come along with me when we fish. Great idea. I’ve been guiding the Smoky Mountains since 1999 and have always welcomed kids to come fish along with their parents. We have smaller sized outfits just for kids that consist of shorter fly rods with small diameter grips, and all are overlined by one line weight so that it makes it easier for the kids to get the rods to load. All of our guides are very patient, and all are fathers themselves, so we understand kids and have the know how from fishing with our own children to help guide our client’s children too.

Thanks so much for your consideration, and a wonderful site for kids!

Thanks, Eugene. It’s obvious after one visit to his website, Fly Fishing the Smokies, that Eugene likes to get kids out on the water.
