Western North Carolina Fly Fishing Retreats

At Headwaters Outfitters, not only are we located minutes from prime fly fishing waters, we are also neighbors with several top rated destinations in lodging and dining.  Earthshine Discovery Center is located in Historic Lake Toxaway area of Western North Carolina.  Earthshine began in 1989 as an outdoor education center. Today,  their purpose remains the same; to share with their guests life changing, hands-on, outdoor experiences that educate and uplift.  A partnership with Earthshine was an easy choice, and we are very excited to be offering a series of Fly Fishing Retreats designed for all ages and skill levels in 2018. 


APRIL 20-22, 2018

Our couple’s fly fishing retreat is the perfect weekend getaway for the Fly Fishing couple, or a couple looking to begin their Fly Fishing journey.  Escape to the Appalachian mountains for a 2 night/3 day all inclusive retreat.  Check-in Friday afternoon and relax on the front porch enjoying a prime view of the early spring mountains.  The dinner bell ring bringing everyone together for introductions and a homestyle meal.  Saturday and Sunday, you and your significant other will enjoy fishing with our team of professional fly fishing guides.  The two of you will spend a day fishing one of our pristine private water stretches, and the other day on one of our drift boats.  If skill levels vary amongst couples, that is okay!  Our guides will work with each person individually to help grow and/or introduce skills.  They will provide all the gear you need for a successful weekend of fishing, however if you have personal gear,  we encourage you to bring it along.  Earthshine will provide all the food and non-alcoholic drinks for the weekend.  Their kitchen staff is top notch, and can work with special dietary needs or allergy.  Your weekend includes all food, lodging,  gift bag, fishing and transportation during retreat.  The only other cost associated with your weekend, will be your NC Fishing License and gratuity for lodge staff and fishing guides.  If you are interested in signing up for our Spring Couple’s Retreat please email Jessica at
