Social Media has become the new way of communication and another way to track interests and hobbies. If you are interested in fly fishing, Instagram is a great tool for connecting to fishers and companies. If you are interested in booking a trip, some fly fishing outfitters are able to book a trip through various social platforms. With social media you can also see more of what outfitters have offer through their pictures. You can see what they have caught in the past and even where they were when they made a catch.
Without further ado, here are some of the best fly fishing Instagram accounts to follow.

@katiecahn – Katie grew up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains alongside the Chattooga River. She grew up fishing spin rod until the age of 30, when she decided to attend Western Carolina University in North Carolina. It was there she discovered the discipline of fly fishing. With a combination of rivers and streams in Western North Carolina she spent most of her college days near the river switching between studying and fishing. She is a guide at Head Waters Outfitters located in Rosman, NC. Follow her page and check out the fly fishing happenings from the east coast!
