Coming Your Way!!!
Well........looks like I'll be in your great state the latter part of April. Plan on doing a lot of fly fishing. No wife, no kids, no dogs, no nothin' .......will be staying at Little River Log Cabins. Called Little River Outfitters for possible guide services but was told they were pretty much booked for the last week in April. Anybody have any suggestons as to another guide service......I'm not actually totally committed to hiring a guide, just wish to have some options as my departure nears. Thanks.

Call Ken Long at 865-406-6370 (mobile) or 865-986-9008. e-mail is
His website is He's a great guide and a personal friend of
mine. He is also an Orvis Endorsed Guide. You can do a wade trip in the Park and he also
has a fine driftboat if you want to float a tailwater. Tell him I sent you.

Re: Coming Your Way!!!

What Byron did not know was that we are already using Ken for some of the trips we have going out of here...So, I would recommend that you give Hugh Hartsell a try.

Hugh's website is We have his phone contact too, but since he does not publish it on his website, I think you should contact him there or private message him from this site.

Hugh is an amazing fisherman who has a ton of knowledge of the Park and surrounding areas. He is a poster on this site and always has great advice and tips. I don't think you could go wrong.

Hope this helps! ;)

Leave it up to a "significant other" to get things "right". I'll contact Hugh via the website. Thanks much for your info, think maybe I spoke with ypu earlier this week by phone. I'll see you at "the fly shop" in about a month.

If you can line up with Hugh, check out his flies. He's got the whole thing figured out. He's also a great guy.
