The Fly Fishing Show - Atlanta, GA

If you live in the Atlanta area and you love fly fishing, you really need to come on down to The Fly Fishing Show at the Infinite Energy Center. You’ll see a host of TU Businesses represented. You can try out the gear, check out some great fly fishing destinations and hang out with people who love fly fishing as much as you do! Here’s one of those people – the great Jimmy Harris from Unicoi outfitters in Helen, GA. Unicoi Outfitters is the oldest full service fly fishing shop and guide service in all of North Georgia. They’re located on the Chattahoochee River near Helen, GA. They offer guide services, regional fishing information and fly fishing for trophy rainbow and brown trout on private waters including the exclusive 1.5 mile section of the Chattahoochee River at Nacoochee Bend. The folks at Unicoi like nothing better than sharing the fondness they all have for fly fishing, and enjoy teaching others to fly fish. They hold regular classes in beginning fly fishing and fly tying, and occasional intermediate and advanced classes. They are also the home of the “Gilligan Special” a three-hour tour that leads to a lifetime of adventure. Newly added is the Fly Fishing School at Habersham Mill, an intensive two-day course designed for novice and intermediate anglers. In addition to guide and teaching services Unicoi Outfitters operates a well-stocked full-service fly shop, carrying some of the best fly fishing brands available anywhere. They are happy to take orders over the phone and ship to you, or even better, have you visit the shop on the way to the stream. You can also visit the shop online. Shipping is free on orders over $200 and if you purchase a premium rod, they offer a complimentary half day of unguided trophy trout fishing at Nacoochee Bend.
