Our Program Captain Michael “Rocky Cox” of  Rocky Top Anglers

“I was born and raised near Knoxville Tennessee. This allowed me to grow up with wonderful places to play right in my own back yard. Countless miles of mountain streams and large, cold tailwaters provided endless playgrounds. I never realized how much those years of playing in the water would influence my adult life.

    I’ve always loved the peaceful excitement of fly fishing and always found myself thinking about that next big trip to the mountains. When my leisure time came, I was fly fishing. I was always captivated by the guides I saw, rowing their anglers down river and finding those special places only accessible by drift boat. I knew that guiding others and showing them the places I treasure would be a very rewarding career.

    I’ve been in the business of guiding fly anglers to east Tennessee’s finest fly fishing destinations since 1999. I strive to please my clients and work very hard to make sure every day out on the water is a very special day. Being a professional fly fishing guide isn’t always easy, but it is always rewarding and I’m truly blessed in doing what I love.

Hope to see you there.

June Meeting

This month Meeting is on Tuesday, the 25th. The social hour start at 6pm for social hour and 7pm for the meeting. Our guest speaker will be David Perry from   Southeastern Fly

David Perry has been guiding and calling the waters of Middle Tennessee home for almost two decades.

David began fly fishing in the Great Lakes State of Michigan while in grade school. After moving to Knoxville, Tenn. as an adult, a friend reintroduced David to fly fishing. They fished the small streams of Smoky Mountains, East Tennessee tailwaters and into North Carolina multiple times a week and refreshed David’s skills as an angler.

Upon moving to Murfreesboro and buying a drift boat, David’s friends encouraged him to start guiding anglers because of his desire to help others catch fish on the fly.

David specializes in terrestrials, nymphs, streamer techniques and works very hard to make every client a better angler.

His dedication to new anglers and seasoned veterans shows each day on the river.

Chapter meeting will be on Tuesday June 25rd at Barley’s in downtown
Maryville. Social hour starts at 6:00 and the business meeting will start at
7:00. We meet in the upstairs banquet room.
