Welcome To Highland Outfitters

At Highland Outfitters, we believe that cultivating our local watershed into a clean sustainable resource is our responsibility as a fly shop and guide service. Our goal is to produce a paradigm focused on education and angling practices that can help grow a healthy fishing community.

We’d love an opportunity to show you the Highland Outfitters difference, and why we are quickly becoming known as the go to outfitter and guide service in Western North Carolina.

Joe Kostura – Head Fishing Guide

Joe has been fly fishing the area streams around the High Country for almost two decades, and with that kind of experience under his belt brings a knowledge that is second to none. However, Joe’s real passion is fishing and guiding the tailwaters in East Tennessee where he has spent countless hours over the last decade trying to perfect his craft. His enthusiasm and love for both rivers is often carried over by his guests fishing with him whether they are trying to sight fish for the large browns and rainbows that inhabit them, or simply trying to put countless fish in the net. Joe has just three, simple goals with a guest in his boat: ensure that they have a great experience, catch a lot of fish and return home worn out and safely from a great day on the water.
