About The Founders

Paul & Kacie Kisielewskifly fishing guides wnc

A local to the Asheville area, Paul grew up fly fishing for trout on local creeks and bass fishing on stream-fed mountain lakes around Western North Carolina.  His fishing obsession started at a young age while spending time on his family property in Lake Lure, North Carolina. He became hooked on fly fishing and spent every second of his childhood learning about the creeks, streams, and rivers in Asheville, WNC. Paul has extensive knowledge about fishing mountain lakes and the rivers that run into them. In an effort to provide fun and safe fly fishing trips on lakes and rivers, he is USCG Licensed.
Born and raised in the mountains just north of Asheville, Kacie has been fishing for trout and smallmouth bass her entire life. Kacie fully manages our young kids Fly Fishing Camp during the summer. She has a passion for smallmouth bass, and she loves sharing her knowledge of fishing with the younger generation. When she isn’t on the riverbank, she can be found training for half-marathons, taking pictures of mountain lakes, or hiking with her dog.
