A guided experience exposing you to the restful hobby of fly fishing


Nick Newman

Rest Guide

Nick is a North Carolina native that enjoys the sport of fly fishing. In his words "fly fishing is the only hobby I've found that lets my mind rest." His background in pastoring, coaching, and consulting translates with ease to being a fly fishing guide.

While Nick will put you on fish, he enjoys the coaching moments and conversations the river provides even more.

Matt Sharrock

Rest Guide

One of Matt’s first memories is standing in a mountain stream fishing with his Dad. A lifelong avid angler, Matt has traveled all over the country for different species and techniques. Fly fishing has become one of his biggest passions. From drift boats in the TN tail waters to chasing native Brook trout in WNC. As much as Matt enjoys catching fish on the fly, he loves guiding and encouraging people just as much.

Matt really values the experience of fly fishing and the opportunity to share it with new and seasoned anglers alike.

Depending on time of year and water conditions, our wade fishing trips can range far into the backcountry in search of wild Brook Trout, or take place right off a public access pull off.

For our guided trout fishing trips in North Carolina, all the gear and flies are included in the price, as well as personalized help from our experienced fly fishing guides. These trips are open to anglers of all skill levels, and abilities.
