Located in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Highland Hiker has been outfitting hikers, fishermen, and travelers for over 25 years. We carry a wide selection of gear, clothing, and shoes for backpacking, fly fishing, camping, hiking, adventure travel, and much more. Highland Hiker is the only fly fishing outfitter in Highlands, NC and carries a complete selection of rods, reels, flies, and other accessories. And for those who are a little rusty or have never fly fished, we have a clinic just for you. Our fly fishing clinic teaches the basics about what type of fish are in the area, how to read water, spot fish, and choose the right fly pattern. Stop by our store and our knowledgable staff can help you pick out the gear you will need to go on your own fly fishing adventure. Western North Carolina's more popular fly fishing species include Brook Trout, Brown Trout, and Rainbow Trout which reside in many of the rivers surrounding Highlands, NC including the Davidson River, the East Fork of the French Broad, and the Tuckasegee.
