Jon’s extremely high standards along with his diligent work ethic and attention to detail is just one of the many reasons that SHRL is so successful to this day.

“In 2007 we purchased the property where we could enjoy time relaxing and hone our skills on some of the best fly-fishing waters in the country. I enjoyed this natural resource so much and knew others would as well, and that’s how the South Holston River Lodge was born. I hope you enjoy our little piece of heaven.”
