They operate a full service fly shop in Boone, North Carolina and offer high quality fly fishing on the Watauga, Linville, Toe, Elk, New River, and many other pristine mountain streams that are located near their shop. The shop is open all year round and they have a professional knowledgeable staff. They also offer float and walk guides on the tailrace waters of Tennessee on the famous Watauga and South Holston Rivers. These waters offer excellent opportunities for catching Brown, Brook, and Rainbow trout. In addition, there is great smallmouth fishing in the area as well.


Foscoe Fishing Company had its beginnings in the mid 1980’s but was originally called High Country Fly Fishing. It has always been an Orvis dealer and the guide and outfitter service has always been Orvis Endorsed. It was the first high profile fly shop in the area offering gear, guides and schools.

They are especially excited about their new location on the Watauga River. The new shop is their permanent location and has a classroom offering fly fishing schools and fly tying classes. They have access to the Watauga River out the back door and offer an even wider variety of products.
