Our Guides

Founded in 1998 to serve fly fishermen, reel ladies, and outdoor clothing enthusiasts, Anglers Lane can guide you on Virginia's varied and underpublicized waters. We guide clients from beginner to expert. While we take our fishing seriously, we try not to take ourselves too seriously. "In the eyes of fish all men are equal" once said Billy Westmoreland, a Tennessee guide. Meet some of the cast of characters guiding for us...

Luke Barton

Luke's passion for fishing is surpassed only by his desire to put you on fish. Terrific oarsman with a great sense of fish behavior across the board-trout, smallmouth and musky. Grew up in Western NC and knows those waters as well. Excellent fly tyer especially streamers.

Jeremy Cunningham

Jeremy Cunningham

Has fished the James River since his youth and knows his favorite sections extremely well. Works extremely hard to provide his clients an excellent day of fishing. Knows the Jackson, James and the Smith Rivers in detail. If not fishing might be resurrecting a body-damaged car or truck into very usable condition.

Adam Godsey

Excellent fisherman and empathetic guide with solid knowledge of our area's waters. Adam knows brookie waters around this region like back of his hand as well as other wild trout habitat. Accomplished with smallmouth. Extremely patient. Loves to talk fishing with anyone of any age.

Doug Lane

Founded Anglers Lane in 1998 after 20 years in furniture industry. Earliest memories include mornings on the banks of the Staunton River (late 1960's). Enjoys the Jackson, Staunton, and Rivenridge at Piney River Forks, Quebec (Atlantic Salmon), & Missoula MT. Has logged more hours guiding on the Staunton and Jackson Rivers than any living guide on these rivers. Learned from the late, inimitable Chuck Kraft, first full-time freshwater fishing guide in Virginia and founder of the Kreelex, Clawdad and numerous effective flies. Later studied two-handed Spey casting under Simon Gawesworth. Still learning.

Jon Perkins

Keith Bernard

Grew up in Nelson County near excellent trout fishing streams. Love for trout fishing started at early age. Loves sharing passion of fly fishing with clients, friends, and family.
