Had the opportunity at least 11 -12 times to get associated with Ronnie Parris - Bryson City on a very thorough basis. Enough times to have the opportunity to have a bad time. As I searched for a smallmouth guide on Fontana I found a picture online of him on a boat Jan. 1st with it snowing and holding a fish. I was sold instantly. If this guy can fish and guide in those conditions----he's my guy!!!
This fine gentleman is passionate about what he does. When I find passionate in any endeavor I usually find pretty greatness at what they do.
Forte is for sure fly fishing and an excellent smallmouth guide on Fontana.
Very reasonable prices and a great teacher.

tnflyfisher, your statement about "by the side" of some on this board couldn't have rang the much louder.I would like to meet you sir.
