Tell me about your guiding service.
South Valley Anglers is located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains outside of Roanoke, Virginia. We are fortunate enough to be centrally located to two of the finest musky rivers in the Southeast, as well as a vibrant seasonal striped bass fishery. We operate October-June for musky, taking a month off in the spring for the spawn to chase River run stripers during this magical time of year.
What is your history with fishing?
Fortunately, I was born and raised in this area, so I've been enjoying these fisheries since the early 80’s. Over three decades of a life outdoors has taught me a lot and offered many rewards. This lifestyle is what led me to a career as a guide and I've been blessed with success on a path which I cherish. While the top freshwater predator on the fly is our passion, I have guided professionally and fished personally from Nova Scotia to South Florida and West to Alaska.
What can customer expect from a trip with South Valley Anglers?
From booking the trip to putting it on the trailer at the end of a long day on the water, our customers can expect a professional, hospitable experience. Southern charm is alive and well in the mountains of Virginia and you can expect world-class predator fly fishing to merge with raw scenic beauty and personable, accommodating guides.
