Please help us welcome Mitch Wisniewski to our guide team.
We are super excited to have him on board as a full time guide starting in Fall 2019.
People call him Wiz. Perhaps for his wit, perhaps for his ability to find fish, perhaps both.
Wiz loves to fish, period. You name a fish, and if it eats a fresh fly or salty fly he will chase it down. He believes there is something to be said about waving a stick around all day trying to trick a fish to eat a chicken feather on a hook. He greatly enjoys time on the water and loves sharing the outdoors and fishing with others. He is an easy going guide and likes to keep it fun on the water.
A native of Morganton, North Carolina he grew up exploring the fertile fishing mecca within Southern Appalachia and Pisgah National Forest. He spent countless days fishing with family and friends on the mountain blue lines, east Tennessee Tailwaters, lakes, and smallmouth bass rivers.
These rivers are where he started guiding and developed his skills to truly understand what it takes to be a professional fly fishing guide and instructor. When it all comes together, there is nothing more exciting and rewarding. Mitch started guiding fishing charters professionally in 2013 and has worked with top name lodges from the Carolinas to Alaska. He earned a degree in Marketing from Penn State and a degree in Outdoor Leadership from Warren Wilson College. Mitch is on pro-staff for Flymen Fishing Company, rows a drift boat and raft and specializes in trout, smallmouth and carp. He is River Rescue 3 International & ACA Level 4 Swiftwater Rescue certified and CPR/First Aid certified. Click here to view Mitch’s guided trip photos.
