New - The Fly Fishing School at Habersham Mill

We are pleased to announce the Habersham Mill Fly Fishing School - an intensive 2-day course designed for novice and intermediate anglers. The school combines classroom instruction, casting practice and actual fishing time.

This is the best place for you to learn how to enjoy the sport. If you have never held a fly rod, we'll take you through the basics. If you have some experience, we'll help you take your skills to the next level.

We have done everything possible to make this the top fly fishing school in the country. Our instructor to student ratio is high (1 to 3). The instructors are seasoned full-time professionals

Visit The Fly Fishing School at Habersham Mill for more information on this outstanding new learning opportunity!

Welcome to Unicoi Outfitters, your North Georgia fly fishing specialists. We operate the oldest full service fly fishing shop and guide service in all of North Georgia. We are an Orvis Endorsed Fly-Fishing Outfitter and our shop is located on the Chattahoochee River near alpine Helen, Georgia and offers guide services, regional fishing information, and fly fishing for trophy rainbow trout and brown trout in privately-owned waters including the exclusive 1.5 mile section of the Chattahoochee River at Nacoochee Bend.

Other private streams we have access to include Noontootla Creek Farm, and Riverside on the Soque. Each of these streams is managed for trophy trout and has its own set of unique characteristics. Many clients schedule regular trips to sample several of the streams in one visit, while others have come to discover that one particular stream is their favorite and return to the same stream over and over. We say the fun is in the discovery!



Unicoi Outfitters Loves to Teach


We like nothing better than sharing the fondness we all have for fly fishing, and enjoy teaching others to fly fish. We hold regular classes in beginning fly fishing and fly tying, and occasional intermediate and advanced classes. We are also home of the "Gilligan Special" - the three hour tour that leads to a lifetime of adventure. We have had many clients whose first hands-on exposure to fly fishing was the Gilligan, and had it lead to a strong life-time interest in the sport.

And back this year is Orvis Fly Fishing 101, and the newly-added Fly Fishing 201!

We also partner with others, such as the Atlanta Fly Fishing School, and Georgia Women Fly Fishers in our attempts to better educate the fly fishing public.

Full Service Fly Shop


In addition to our guide and teaching services, Unicoi Outfitters operates a well-stocked full-service fly shop, carrying some of the best fly-fishing brands available anywhere. We are happy to take orders over the phone and ship to you, or even better, have you visit our shop on the way to the stream. Or if you'd rather, you can shop online at shoponline.unicoioutfitters.com. Shipping is free on orders over $200, and if you purchase a premium rod from us, we sweeten the deal with a complimentary half-day of unguided trophy trout fishing at Nacoochee Bend.

You are also welcome to come by or call for fishing reports, ideas of where to go, or just generally jawing about fly fishing. For even more info, check out the Liars Club Blog and join the Liars Club to receive our monthly email newsletter of fly fishing news relevant to all who fish North Georgia.
