Meet the Guides



My Name is Mark Moran. I was born and raised in Weston WV. I’ve been fishing these lakes and rivers in North Central WV for bass all my life. When I was 13 years old I started fishing competitively and still do it to this day. I was the junior state champion in 2013. Then in 2014 I went to college at Glenville State and started fishing tournaments at the collegiate level. I was fortunate to travel across the country to fish different bodies of water and meet a lot of different anglers.


I really enjoy teaching this sport to new people. Over the past several years I’ve had the opportunity to be a boat captain for a local high school B.A.S.S. team. I would get just as excited if they caught a fish as if I caught it myself. I’ll do anything and everything I can to make sure whoever is in my boat has a great experience on the water.


My name is RJ Kerwood. I was born in Dalton, Georgia, but raised right here in wild & wonderful West Virginia. My grandfather taught me how to fish and hunt at a young age. Around the age of ten, I picked up my first fly rod. My grandfather gave me casting lessons in the yard. Now years later, I am doing exactly what I love to do for a living. 


I started traveling for work at the age of eighteen. Doing so, gave me the opportunity to fish in several different states across our country. From the salty flats in Florida to the magnificent mountains in Montana, I have chased fish on a fly. Guiding has been a dream of mine since I was a little boy. Growing up watching Walker Key Chronicles and the Spanish Fly, I kept telling myself that would be me one day.  My dream came true the spring I turned twenty four years old when I took out my first guided fly fishing trip on the Elk River.


I enjoy teaching and sharing the knowledge that I have obtained over the past twenty years. I enjoy guiding & fishing for several different species, including;  musky, trout, & small mouth.  I work very hard to make sure my clients have the best experience possible on the water. I hope to continue my career and passion for fishing for many years to come with new clients and old friends.
