Brookings’ Cashiers Village Anglers is a destination for fly fishing enthusiasts throughout the Southeast. Headquartered in Cashiers, North Carolina, Brookings’ is located within easy access of Highlands, Lake Toxaway, Sapphire, and Asheville, North Carolina, and is the Western North Carolina source for all things fishing. Anglers reach us from Charleston and Greenville, South Carolina; Birmingham; Charlotte; Atlanta—even Texas, Florida, and beyond for enjoyable and successful guide trips and to take advantage of our extensive inventory of gear for fishing and the greater outdoors.
Our guide trips include wade trips for trout, float trips for trout, float trips for smallmouth bass, and customized fishing schools for you or your group. We fish the Tuckasegee River, French Broad River, Davidson River, Watauga River, Chattooga River, South Holston River, Lake Jocassee, and other Western North Carolina rivers and streams, including those on the Cherokee Indian Reservation.
Brookings’ merchandise includes both fly fishing and spin fishing rods, reels, and tackle, as well as a wide range of apparel, fly tying materials and equipment, sunglasses, waders, and footwear. We are always adding new lines, brands, and products. Some of our current favorites include Simms waders, Korkers boots, Orvis rods, Scott fly rods, Hardy reels, and Smith and Suncloud polarized sunglasses.
Brookings’ staff consists of only experienced guides who are eager to help beginning fishermen and women get started and give expert guidance and assistance to experienced anglers. If you can’t make it to our shop, call us or email us with questions about techniques or gear. We can answer your questions and put together whatever gear you need and ship it to you nationwide.

The fish must have been in the mood for love. When honeymooners Shannon and Porter Barron hit the East Fork of the French Broad with Brookings’ guide Marc Hipp the fish put on quite a show for the first-time fly anglers.
