Owner and Guide
Drew's passion for using fly rods to chase warm water species, especially bass, began when fishing the creeks and rivers of South Alabama as a kid. Growing up he was always playing and fishing in creeks...and now does the same in the East/Central region of Alabama.
When he moved to Auburn, Alabama for school, he began to discover the incredible bass fisheries in the piedmont regions of Alabama. After college he started teaching high school and conveniently had summer vacation to spend fishing the region. After years of fishing, East Alabama Fly Fishing was born out of a desire to help others learn to fly fish for bass, as well as network with other anglers who enjoy using fly rods.
Drew's guiding expertise includes the Tallapoosa River and it's tributaries out of a drift boat. His favorite species to fish for is the venerable Redeye Bass.
Craig grew up fishing around Lake Guntersville in North Alabama with his dad . When he was 14 his dad gave him a used Cortland fly rod at a garage sale. From then on he was hooked. He's always loved conventional fishing also but if it was at all possible I would use a fly rod.
While attending college at Auburn, he began fishing the East Alabama area while also going to the Gulf to chase speckled trout and redfish. Bass are his favorite freshwater fish to catch on a fly rod, after that would be speckled trout in saltwater. Craig is also a professional photographer in the Auburn, Alabama area.
Here's what people have said about their trip with Craig!
John Agricola grew up fly fishing for bream and bass on Lake Guntersville. After trying some saltwater species he really started to hone his craft. He spent three years on trout streams such as the North Platte River and Laramie River. These skills have inflected his pursuit of the “golden ghost” on the Coosa River chain. whether you are going out on Lake Weiss, or Neely Henry, he can find you carp. He is an excellent teacher having worked for several years teaching in schools and in fishing clinics.
