Anthony Conrad

Anthony Conrad here! I'm a Hurley, VA native and I've been fishing and hunting since I could literally walk. With over 35 years of fishing experience under my belt, I absolutely love not just fishing, but also sharing my passion and teaching others how to fish. I've been lucky enough to be married to my amazing wife for over 17 years, and together we're raising 3 fantastic boys. Plus, I'm a proud US Army Veteran. Dreaming of starting my own business doing what I love most, FISHING, my wife and I started working towards making that dream a reality a few years ago. Now, we're here to share our knowledge and passion with you!

What We Do

At Conrad's Guide Service, we're passionate about helping our clients experience the thrill of fly fishing on some of the most beautiful rivers in the world. Our team of experienced guides is committed to providing personalized attention and expert guidance to ensure that every fishing trip is both successful and memorable.

We offer a range of fly fishing trips for both wading and floating, ranging from half-day to full-day excursions. Our guides are knowledgeable about the unique ecology of the rivers in East Tennessee, and can provide valuable insights into the best techniques and locations for catching a variety of fish species. We believe that the quality of the equipment is just as important as the expertise of the guide. That's why we provide high-quality gear and equipment, including  fly rods, reels, and flies.

Whether you're an experienced angler or a beginner, we're committed to providing an unforgettable fly fishing experience that is tailored to your individual needs and interests. We're passionate about sharing our love for fly fishing and helping our clients to connect with the natural world in a meaningful way.

Here, we're committed to providing exceptional customer service and ensuring that every client leaves our trips with a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. We look forward to sharing the beauty and excitement of fly fishing with you and helping you to create memories that will last a lifetime.
