Chattahoochee Fly Fishing Guides





"I've fished with Chris many times on the Chattahoochee.  He always seems to know where the fish are.  If your looking for a guide that knows the river well look no further.  I can't say enough good things. Thanks for the memories!"

I have known Chris for over a decade and in that time I have gone from guide, to fishing buddy to the guided.  Chris' knowledge of the water here in Georgia flows from his passion for the sport of fly fishing.  He knows what flies to tie and when to tie them to the tippet.

I highly recommend Chris and know you will have a great day on the water, learn a lot and catch some fish.

"I have fished several times with Chris Markham of Tie One On guide service. I received a fly rod as a gift a few years ago and decided the best thing I could do to get started was to find a knowledgeable guide. I booked a trip with Chris on the Chattahoochee. The first thing I noticed about Chris was his gear and the level of preparation he put into the trip. When I explained to Chris that this was the first time I had been on a river in a drift boat he became very excited to share his knowledge and to help me learn. His passion for the sport of fly fishing is contagious. I had a trip of a lifetime and Chris hooked me on fly fishing.

I have been out with Chris several more times. He's always easy to reach before the trip by phone to discuss fishing conditions. He always has everything prepared. He knows every rock and run in the river. And most importantly to me, he is always very enthusiastic about the trip. I have been on many guided trips and used many guides. What makes a trip special is the guide's enthusiasm and attitude. Chris' love of the river and the sport of fly fishing has made every trip special and memorable.

I can't wait to go out with Chris again."



"I’ve been fortunate to have fished with Chris many times over the last decade. Mostly on the Chattahoochee, but one memorable trip to NC to catch smallies! The main thing to know, is this guy will put you on fish! Don’t worry if you’re new to fly fishing, Chris is very patient and a great instructor. He knows the river, where to fish, and what to fish with. He also works his butt off to put you on fish so don’t be surprised if you use an array of flies. He ties his own and keeps searching for what’s hot. Be prepared to catch fish and have a great time!"
