This is the third guided trip I’ve had with Southern Appalachian Angler and I couldn’t be happier with their services. First trip I caught a ton of bass. Second and third trip I’ve caught a ton of trout. My forth trip will be for the elusive musky and I know SAA will do a great job on that one as well. If you looking for a guided trip in the Asheville area give SAA a call you won’t be disappointed. - Brian Cordeo

If this is any indication, Nate has been asking to go fishing every day since we left. - Rob Speir

My wife and I set out with Capt. Paul on a full day float trip in the French Broad river in September. Paul was on time and his boat and equipment was first class. Capt. Paul was extremely knowledgeable about the river and wildlife that inhabits it. We also ended up catching 20 or so beautiful smallmouth bass including one that was almost 5 pounds! A real trophy! I am a fishing guide from Florida with over 30 years of experience and I would highly recommend a trip with Southern Appalachian Anglers if you have the opportunity. - Captain Bill Lepree
