The foothills of the Appalachian Mountains is where Eli calls home. He has had a passion for fishing since he could walk-flinging flies at trout in southern Appalachia. Eli attended Young Harris College on a golf scholarship, but off the course you could always find him fishing in the Georgia and North Carolina mountains. As soon as he finished college he started his guiding career and has been sharing his passion for fly fishing with others ever since.
Eli is an avid outdoorsman-the kind of guide who you can still find fishing on his day off. He also loves bow hunting and wingshooting. There is an abundance of amazing fisheries and Eli loves fishing new water. Eli’s favorite part of fly fishing is that you can never learn too much. He enjoys tying flies and learning new tactics and patterns that catch fish.
