Jason Reep has owned and operated East Tennessee Fly Fishing in Elizabethton, TN for 20 years. Jason is another one of those guides that seems to stay completely booked during the height of the season. Originally from western North Carolina, Jason grew up fishing the small streams and tailwaters of both western North Carolina and East Tennessee. Jason is another earlier adopter of what is now referred to as European nymphing, though he like many southern Appalachian anglers were tight line nymphing those hills long before the term became popular. Jason was another easy choice for the SYNDICATE™ Pro Staff based on his life long passion for the sport and his vast experience with all major brands of fly fishing gear. We recommend a guided trip with Jason and East Tennessee Fly Fishing for anyone interested in having a realistic shot at a true trophy trout. Jason guides on what we believe to be the two best tailwaters in the Southeast, the Watauga and South Holston rivers.
