Fly Fishing the Flint River for Shoal Bass! Kent Edmonds
After growing up in western SC and frequenting the trout streams of NC and north Georgia, Kent moved to west Georgia about 30 years ago. Finding no trout thereabouts, he began seeking various warm water species with the fly rod. It turned out there were plenty willing to eat a fly…and many were at least as much fin as trout!
After several years of guiding part-time, Kent had a late mid-life crisis in 2001 and became a full-time fly fishing guide. He has fished the streams and lakes of southeast for over 40 years. His fly fishing experience ranges from the Northwest to the Caribbean to the South Pacific.
A Federation of Fly Fishers-certified instructor, Kent Edmonds is available for casting and fly-tying instruction. His articles have appeared in national and regional fly fishing and outdoor magazines, and he is a member of the Georgia Outdoor Writers Association.
