Foscoe Fishing Company Guide - Matt Maness
Matt grew up fishing the lakes and ponds in the Piedmont around the Raleigh area. From the time he could hold one he had a fishing rod in his hand, and when he turned 10 his father introduced him to the world of fly fishing. He was taught how to fly fish in the Wilson Creek area and after he caught his first trout his passion for fly fishing began.
Over the years Matt explored more and more streams and rivers both in NC and TN; he has also made his mark out west fishing in Montana, Wyoming and Colorado. Matt has also spent a considerable amount of time pursuing saltwater fish on the coast as well as stripers on the Roanoke River.
He has developed into an accomplished angler both on local streams and on the tailwaters in TN and spends every free moment on the water. Matt is a full time guide for Foscoe Fishing Company and showed his skills as an accomplished woodworker by building his own wooden drift boat (one of many wooden boats he has built) which is a true work of art and appreciated by everyone on the river.
