Tennessee is home to 30 different kinds of fish. And, thanks to the efforts of the Tennessee Valley Authority and the US Army Corps of Engineers, Tennessee is home to the “Great Lakes of the South”. With more than 29 big lakes in public province, you will have multiple opportunities to fish for striped, largemouth, small mouth and white bass, rainbow trout, walleye, Muskie, crappie and catfish to name just a few.
Fly Fishing in Tennessee
Tennessee has some great rivers for fly fishing. If you are interested in learning about fly fishing or fly tying we recommend visiting
The Dubbing Teasers website. This fly fishing family has about a century of experience and shares that experience in a collection of DVDs. You won't find a group of nicer folks that love the sport and like to share it with others. For kids and Boy Scouts make sure to check out Knack's DVD that will help your scout get his fly fishing merit badge.
