Will Loftus ~ Will is a North Carolina native with a life-long interest in the outdoors, and a commitment to the responsible enjoyment of the natural world. Will came to fly fishing ... moreafter spending time rock climbing, working as a white water rafting guide, serving in AmeriCorps with inner-city children in Atlanta, and assisting with Mountain Challenge, at Maryville College, which provides a wide range of outdoor experiences for young and old, individuals and corporate groups. In his spare time, he enjoys fly tying, and looking for ways to make them just a little more attractive to sophisticated, picky fish.
As well as being relaxing and a lot of fun, Will shares the opinion of Christopher Rownes in “The Perfect Loop,” where he says that fly fishing “stands for values such as respect for nature, for tolerance, tranquility, self-composure, the ability to enjoy, and a readiness for measure and self-contemplation….the rivers keep us humble…and the trout teach us gratitude.”
In addition to being great fun, whether you’re fishing alone, with family, or with a group of friends or co-workers, you lose yourself in nature, in the river, in the cast, and in the competition with the fish. Whether you’re a beginner or an old hand, fly fishing can be whatever you want it to be — exciting or relaxing, a challenge to be faced, or a Zen moment to be appreciated.
Like a complex corporate problem, fly fishing requires that you, the river, the rod, the fly, the weather, and the cast all come together in just the right way to produce the result you want — everything from quiet satisfaction to sweet success, and all the space in between!
Craig Byers was born and raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Weaverville, NC. He learned to fish in the waters of these mountains for trout, Smallmouth Bass, largemouth bass, and ... moreanything else that was willing to bite. His true love of the sport has always involved the “Big Fish” and his spare time consists of either fishing for the big boys or formulating new strategies to catch them which involve tying flies, making baits and scouting his next fishing hole. No fish is safe from Craig! He’s caught them all from the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee to the coasts of the Carolina’s and everywhere in between. Craig’s love of the outdoors – which includes a good hunting adventure from time to time – gave him the ambition to obtain an Associates Degree in the Fish and Wildlife field from Haywood Community College in western North Carolina. Craig also leads clients on Hunting Trips in Western North Carolina.
With approximately 10,000 miles of water to fish in North Carolina Craig’s fishing tip is simple. Try all types of water, pick the ones you love the most and spend a lifetime enjoying those waters be it streams, rivers, creeks or the ocean and practice catch and release in doing so. As the old timers say – you’ll save a few for seed. “Take a kid fishing!”

He continued guiding while attending college and started, Tailwater Fishing Company, in the process. In 2014 he graduated from Harding University with a degree in Social Science Education, but has never stopped guiding full time.

I love to fish, before I can remember, I would beg my parents to take me across the street so I could fish in my neighbor’s little trout stream. I made my own fishing rod from a spool ... moreof thread and used Christmas-tree hooks. I was obsessed. At age eleven Mr. Thomas, an older man from my church asked my dad if he could take me fishing. He had the patience of Job, and many Saturdays in the summer he’d pick me up and we’d fish for bass. He didn’t fish with a regular rod, but taught me how to do real fishing, fly fishing. Who knows how many hundreds of flies I lost in the trees, but it was through his kindness and patience I learned to fly fish.
When my uncle heard I started fly fishing and loved it, he taught me how to tie flies. I still remember sitting down at the table with him and tying my first ‘wooly bugger’. He then gave me a complete tying kit; I was off and haven’t look back since.
So if you want to catch lots of fish on a guided trip, or you really want to become proficient at fly fishing, I’d love to help you. Geoff has been tying flies and fly fishing for over 32 years.
