Steven R. Lamb, owner GeorgiaFlyGuide
Like many lifetime, avid anglers, Steve's dad started him fishing at a very early age. To quote
him, "I was 7 and just fell in love with it". Steve first started guiding back in the early 1980's on
Georgia's headwater mountain streams. Five years later, he added drift boat fishing on the
Toccoa River Tailwater to his guide trips which, according to Steve, has been a blessing for
He and his guides have been teaching the Art of Flyfishing and Fly tying at Kennesaw State
University for seventeen (17) years. He also teaches classes at Chattahoochee Tech. Most of
the classes are for Co-Ed and Seniors on the OLN program. As the years went by, Steve
ventured to the states of Montana, Wyoming, Arkansas, and Pennsylvania chasing trout and to
upstate New York for Salmon and Steelhead. I can vouch for that because Steve has allowed
me the use of hundreds of images he has taken in those states as well as the states of
Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina.
Steve's latest undertaking is to promote the tremendous fly fishing for the warm water species
on the Etowah River. He feels like it's the dawning of a new era. The Etowah River has a huge
diversity of fish species that can be caught on the fly as well as conventional tackle. Fishing
from drift boats he and his guides are able to catch Spotted Bass, Stripers, of three varieties,
and trophy size gar.
Steve also develops streamers for one of our competitors, the Big Y Fly Company of Oregon.
His streamers are very successful in catching fish and anglers have begin to discover it. We
may have to get him to design some streamers for Perfect Fly. Steve sums up his reasons for
his love of fishing in a simple statement he made in an email to me. He said "The Art of
Flyfishing is very rewarding and very stress releasing!
