Joey Walraven is through and through a fly fishing competitor as is evident by his many Trout Legend™ and pipeline league podium finishes. Hailing from North Georgia, he is a pillar of the nations top regional comp team, North Carollina Fly Fishing Team™. Joey is also one of the most approachable competitors you will find and if you are fortunate enough to spend a day on the river with him, you will walk away a better angler. A wealth of information for all things fly fishing, whether European nymphing related or otherwise, Joey is a wealth of fly fishing knowledge. He is another invaluable resource for SYNDICATE’s product development and testing. Stop by one of the REO fly shops in Cherokee or Spruce Pine, North Carolina and check out their full line of Syndicate products. If you are looking for a trophy fish guided experience then definitely book a trip with the Rivers Edge Outfitters crew.
