River Guide Jedediah Plunkert

Jedediah Plunkert started fishing at a young age, riding a bicycle with a fishing rod across the handlebars to local ponds and streams around the Baltimore area. This set the stage for his ongoing fascination of exploring water and nature.  Jed worked with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service through their Y.C.C. program.  The conservation ethic continued with groups such as the Shenandoah & Potomac River Conservancies, Potomac River Smallmouth Club, Loudon County Wildlife Conservation and Friends of the Opequon. 

Jed is a river fishing guide for White Fly Outfitters on the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers. Fishing year round, he targets a variety of species including Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Striped Bass, Musky, Walleye, Northern Snakehead and Crappie. He can be seen as a regular guest on The Tight Line Junkies Journal and his photos have been published in Kayak Angler and KAYAK FISH magazines. 

He brings his art expertise to the fishing community through custom lure building and pouring soft plastics, tattooing and designing logos for angler themed clothing.

 

     
     
     
 
River Guide Brian Kelly


Bryan Kelly in the late 80's and early 90's, while competing in the B.A.S.S. Federation Tournaments,
fished the Upper Potomac near Harpers Ferry for fun and an escape from the pressures of competition. His passion grew for seeking out the hard-fighting Bronze Backs -- in part just getting away from the Upper Bay and Lower Potomac Boat traffic.  Now as a River Guide, Bryan will put you on some of the most scenic rivers in the Mid Atlantic. After opening the Angler’s Inn with his wife Debbi in 1996, he was able to focus on guiding clients on the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers full time.  Bryan, as an author, artist, fly designer, casting instructor and prostaff member, brings a full arsenal of fishing techniques, knowledge, and history to all of his guided trips.

 

 
     
     
     
 
River Guide Doug Boyles


River Guide Doug Boyles joined White Fly Outfitters at the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers
with over seven years of experience from the New and Gauly Rivers in southern West Virginia.  Doug has been chasing Smallmouth since the time he could walk.  Now a full time teacher, he brings his confidence and teaching skills to guiding that the new angler and the experienced angler can enjoy. Doug's knowledge doesn't stop at smallmouth: his father-in-law was a full time guide that for trout and the many saltwater species off the coast of New Jersey. Could you imagine being at that Thanksgiving table? When Doug's not guiding or teaching he spends his time exploring the many floatable waters in West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania for big Browns, Musky, and Smallmouth Bass.
