  • Steve is new member of the Brookeside outfitter and is an EXCELLENT guide and instructor. I am a novice fly fisherman only being self taught before my trip. Steve asked me before the trip what I wanted to achieve during the trip. I told him I would like to 1) improve my fly fishing 2) learn some entomology and 3) take a shot on a big brown trout. All of my requests were fulfilled. Steve was very patient with me as we chiseled away the at rough edges on my fly game, taught me what the fish were eating and why, and when the time came Steve was able to put me on the fish of a lifetime! Everything on this trip was handled very professionally, from the communication leading up to the trip, the initial meetup, the equipment used, the instruction, and even communication after the trip. Steve truly wants you to succeed both during and after your trip. Highly recommend Brookeside guides to anyone wanting to plan a trip to Western Carolina mountains!
  • I can't recommend Brookside Guides highly enough! I'd never fly fished before but wanted to learn--Tony Brooks completely exceeded my expectations. One thing I really appreciated is that he didn't dumb anything down, but at the same time he explained more complicated things in a way that I could understand even as a total beginner, which I think is the mark of a great teacher. It was obvious that he genuinely loves teaching people about fly fishing. If you're a beginner looking to learn or want to improve your skills, seriously, this is the guy!
