Well deserved break
Well deserved break
My fishing partner and I took a weekend away to enjoy some fishing and relaxation in April. The Possum Creek guest house provided the perfect habitat for our weekend. We were very comfortable with the "kitchenette" appliances and provisions for fixing breakfast and dinner. The large TV and sitting area were perfect for after fishing and the fire pit down along the river was a great evening-cigar smoking area. Due to the water release schedules, the fishing was slow but our guide Jon worked himself to death to get us on the fish. His shore lunches were awesome and decreased the need for dinner.

Nice spot on river
Nice spot on river
Wanted a couple of days fishing in an area not far from Richmond, VA. This was about 4-5 hours west. Lovely spot on river; one small private cabin for two with bath and queen size bed, TV and coffee maker. Very nice. A larger cabin for 4-6 or a larger family. The main house has a full kitchen, BBQ, TV game room in basement, another bedroom upstairs and a spa just outside. Understand they are building another building that will allow them to provide meals, as well. Fished a couple of days with Jon Hooper, the property manager and fishing guide. Very nice, relaxing experience.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: SOUTH HOLSTON RIVER LODGE is owned by Will and Bill Andersen. Fly fishing has been a source of enjoyment for us for many years. In 2007 we purchased the SOUTH HOLSTON RIVER LODGE where we could enjoy time relaxing and honing our skills on the best fly fishing water east of the Mississippi. We enjoyed the property so much we knew others would as well. And that has been the case. With many additions to the original lodge including separate cabins, game room, dock, and most important, the addition of Jon Hooper and recently Tony Marcucci, SHRL has become an ideal location for long a week or weekend of relaxation and fly fishing. We hope that our visitors enjoy the retreat as much as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Trout Hunters Guide Service provides guide services for guests at Possum Creek Retreat. Jon Hooper, owner and guide started his passion at age 5. Born in a small town in upstate New York, he utilized the tributaries of Lake Erie and Ontario to hone my skills for the pursuit of trophy salmon, steelhead, and trout on the fly. Moving to the Southeast after college, continued his quest for trout in the mountains of western North Carolina. After a few years in Asheville, N.C., he attended Sweetwater Travel Fly Fishing Guide School in Fort Smith, Montana (nestled seconds away from the Bighorn River). After successful completions of their program, he guided in Alaska on the Talachulitna River. At the end of King Salmon season in 2009, I was asked to come back to the Lower 48 and open Trout Hunter’s Guide Service at South Holston River Lodge in Bristol, Tennessee. Having guided hundreds of clients, you will be provided the most enjoyable fishing experience of your life. Trout Hunter’s Guide Service at South Holston River Lodge prides itself on hiring local knowledgeable fly fisherman as guides. We spend hundreds of days on the river each year and will be happy to help you will all elements of techniques. We guide clients from all levels of experience from someone who is casting a fly rod for the very first time to a seasoned angler who has been fly fishing his or her entire life. We are devoted to our craft and will do everything possible to help you enjoy your time on the water
