I am going to be in the Asheville/Brevard/Maggie Valley area next week until the last week of October. I am very much a newbie to the fishing here and would appreciate ANY help the anyone would provide. I would like to fish the French Broad for smallies in a kayak or raft. Trout of any size would be awesome. Is anyone interested in fishing partner. Or perhaps a "Trip Swap" . I have been guiding in Everglades National Park since the late 90's and would love to swap there for trips in your area. www.ChokoloskeeCharters.com www.EvergladesKayakFishing.com.
