David was great! He took the time to teach my wife on her first trip and provide technique changes to me at the same time. Awesome conversations, great suggestions, and excited interest in doing more. Can't say enough great things about David and our full-day wade trip!!!

Easy reservations and communication. Very experienced and knowledgeable team. Full service guided float trip on the Watauga was fun, educational, and we caught browns and rainbows with wet and dry flies. Worth the expense and we have used them for double digit trips!

Kirby exceed our greatest expectations. Had us catching fish in the 1st hour out. Lost track of how many fish we caught. It was such an amazing and memorable day. Catching the biggest fish we have every dreamed of catching. Cant wait to get out with him again.

Corey is an awesome guide! We have been several times with other guides (and other companies) and prefer Foscoe (Boone fly shop) to the rest. Super easy to contact and great trips each time we've gone. We finally took the plunge and bought some cheap rods and our guide, Corey, was gracious enough to get us setup for our solo adventures. Appreciate the help, we are hooked on fly fishing now!

Skye as a fly fishing guide with High Country guide service made our adventure so much fun! Skye is extremely knowledgeable of the sport and creates such an environment that makes you want to keep learning. He was very patient with us being newbies and was very encouraging in the cold and rain. Skye has given us the desire to get out there again soon! Thanks Skye!!

Did a half-day trip with Kirby. We went out in the snow and freezing temps for my first fly fishing trip ever and had a blast. Even caught a couple of beautiful rainbows and a large brown. He taught me about reading water, tying knots, strategy and technique and was able to pick out my bad habits to teach me a better way. I would highly recommend.
