James Williams

James grew up in Granite Falls, NC primarily fishing for largemouth bass on the surrounding lakes. He has been coming to the Brevard area for over 20 years and last year decided to retire from the corporate world and move to the area to take full advantage of all the great fishing and mtn biking. James really took up fly fishing about 5 years ago and instantly fell in love with the sport. His trips to the area always included stops to DRO and once moving here, immediately joined the team. James enjoys building fly rods, tying flies, and discussing the sport with anyone that comes in.
