Mike Watts has been fly fishing the Carolina’s and beyond for over 45 years! This is a blog with a lot of lies, tall tales, some truths and advice about fly-fishing. Mike earned his gray hair and wanted to teach the next generation how to relax, unwind and learn the fine art and poetry of fly-fishing.
This fly fishing fanatic had a successful career in the environmental services industry before selling his company in 2021. Mike started and sold a highly successful environmental services company near Greenville, South Carolina; Pinnacle Environmental (pinnacleenv.com). He continues to keep his hand in the industry as Vice president of Waste Services for Terra Nova Solutions (tnsolutions.co) but his first love (after his family, it’s a close call too!) is fly fishing, teaching others and sharing tips, wisdom and humorous stories, quotes, and advice and just being in the outdoors.
Over the years Mike has travelled afar to fly fish in some of the most coveted spots in America and abroad. This blog is meant to help those who are beginning, or well adept at the art and poetry of fly-fishing. It’s not meant to be exhaustive, but to offer honest (as much as he can) reflections, advice and tips on fly-fishing and various outdoor activities. It’s also a place to just chill for ten minutes out of your day and unplug with humor, advice, tips, and guest articles about fly fishing and other outdoor related adventures.
We are so glad you stopped by and please contact us to share your stories, thoughts and reactions to the blog. Mike has even taught fly-fishing as an adjunct professor at Clemson University for 17 years and taught over 1000 students how to fly fish! We hope you enjoy the conversation, lies, tall tales and actual stories from Mike!
