Saluda Valley Guides, LLC
Owner: Jake Howard
Growing up an avid outdoorsman, Jake began teaching himself the art of fly fishing at the age of twelve on the Saluda River in Columbia Sc. After graduating high school, he moved west to Colorado. There he fished the famed Frying Pan, Blue, Colorado and Arkansas Rivers. It was not long before he began guiding for a local shop; he guided guests on upwards of 100 trips a season. While living in Summit County, Colorado he spent nearly 300 days a year on the water. In 2003 Jake returned to South Carolina. Since then he has become one of the top performers on the Team Stonefly Competitive Fly Fishing Roster, competing against some of the top fly anglers in the world. As of September 2013 Jake was able to put his dreams to fruition and started Saluda Valley Guides, LLC. If you are visiting anywhere near Columbia SC and feel the urge to get on the trout then you need to get ahold of Jake Howard.
