Details:Went on a guided float down the James River in Charlottesville with Brian from Mossy Creek Fly Fishing (http://www.mossycreekflyfishing.com). Excellent guide with a lot of experience fishing the James and Shenandoah rivers. I think we caught well over 50 smallmouth bass while there. Highly recommend these guys for guided tours and to learn new fly fishing techniques.
