About The Guides

Fly Fishing & Wingshooting in Madison, NC

We are a small collection of professional guides in NC and VA who have spent decades pursuing our passions. Through these experiences, we have developed a variety of services and trips for clients to enjoy. Our hope is that we have removed most of the guesswork so that clients may focus on the adventure rather than the details. Please do not hestitate to call us for any advice pertaining to fly fishing or wingshooting, one of our staff members will be glad to assist you. Though we do not have a retail location, we carry several lines of fly fishing and hunting equipment as a service to clients to ensure quality gear at affordable prices.

We run most of our trips “in-house” using current staff. However, some specialized trips utilize additional guides that we are proud to call friends. This is especially true where difficult fisheries exist which demand daily interaction to achieve success. Every guide through Wing & Fly Co. is a seasoned professional aimed at maximizing your success.

Our main service area is the piedmont of North Carolina and Virginia, but we annually lead hunting and fishing trips in other states.

Brandon Price

Brandon Price is the knowledgeable, against-the-grain, do-it-all outdoorsman. We’ve lost count of the places that he’s either hunted or fished. His guiding career started in Colorado, and it includes three seasons in Alaska. We find that he is just as happy to chase Roanoke bass as he would be landing a salmon.

His southern charm makes him a very patient instructor for both fly fishing and wingshooting. He is very direct, making his teaching style effective for those who have a strong desire to learn. Full of surprises, he’ll climb a 30-foot sapling to retrieve flies or charge bears that get too close to the lunch spot. He works as a consulting wildlife forester so he practically knows the Latin name of every tree you’re likely to see- just in case you wanted know.

Brandon currently resides in Madison, NC and acts as both a wingshooting and fly fishing guide. He serves his community as volunteer firefighter/EMT.

Company History: A Tale of Two Guides

As they say “It’s a small world.”  That phrase sums up the creation of this company.  Tyler Almond and Brandon Price grew up in the same county, graduated high school the same year, and both  acquired a passion for fly fishing and wingshooting.  Brandon attended Appalachian State for two years before transferring to NC State, leaving the trout streams behind.  That same year, Tyler began attending Lees-McRae College in Banner Elk, fishing some of the same riffles Brandon’s boots had stirred weeks before.  Both sportsmen graduated college and began working, dabbling with guiding in the summers.  In 2007, having never met, they found themselves sharing a small cabin in southwestern Alaska, both working as fly fishing guides for a well-known fly out lodge.  Through their friendship and the networks they’ve woven through the years, Wing & Fly was born.

Tyler moved on to new opportunities in the retail fishing business, but not before introduced Josh Swain to us.  Then there was Paul, Mark, and Sara….who didn’t stay long but left their unique influences.  We continue to seek out partnerships with great guides for the local woods and waters around us.  Many thanks to all the anglers and hunters that have made this possible, your friendships are deeply appreciated and the moments cherished.
