About Our Team

Reel Angling Adventures is proud to share our professional, courteous, knowledgable and friendly guide service with our clients.

Bob Borgwat, owner/operator/guide

RAA owner/outfitter/guide Bob Borgwat on the Toccoa River, GeorgiaWith his wife, Mary, and their dog Reese. RAA's Bob Borgwat shares a mountainside log home overlooking the Toccoa River in the north Georgia mountains. Fly-fishing is a passion he first tried at 12 years old in the California Sierras. Over the last 20+ years, he has honed his fly-fishing skills on the trout waters of the southern Appalachian Mountains, sharing his sport with hundreds of anglers during the 10 years he has owned and operated Reel Angling Adventures.

Bob’s passion for the pull of a fish on a fishing line never limits his scope in fishing – neither the fish, techniques, nor tackle for the job at hand. Now 56, you’re just as likely to Bob slinging plastic worms for smallmouth bass as you are to see him flogging a favorite trout stream with a 3-weight. A native Californian, he came to North Georgia in 1990 after living 15 years in Texas, where he honed his bass-fishing skills on the legendary lakes of East Texas. Bob's angling fortunes stretch to the rivers of Wyoming's Rocky  Mountains, high-country streams of California's Cascade Mountains, the bays and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the waterways of Nicaragua's Caribbean jungles, the bonefish flats of The Bahamas, the rocky shelves of Mozambique's Indian Ocean,  mysterious rivers of southern Africa, and more.  Much of his angling experience -- both stateside and abroad -- has been captured in his own  words and photography as an award-winning contributor of more than 150 articles published as a freelance writer for state, regional, national and international fishing magazines/

Today, Bob shares his fishing expertise and adventures as a freelance writer for several publications, and as editor for 7 state titles of outdoors magazines published by Outdoor Sportsmans Group in Kennesaw, Gerogia. He is an active member of the Blue Ridge Mountain chapter (#696) of Trout Unlimited; works communications/puiblicity for the annual Blue Ridge Trout Festival & Outdoors Adventures event in Blue Ridge, GA; and is an active member and former president of the Georgia Outdoor Writers Association.

Working together for more than 10 years, Bob's guide team holds more than 80 years of collective angling experience gained from among the fishing venues in the southern Appalachian Mountains of Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina. The guys include several freelance guides -- Skip Waybrant, Jeff Sharpe, Brad Wayne and Bill Stranahan --  who have spent a lifetime each learning and sharing their passion for fishing, especially fly-fishing.  Each has their favorite trout waters across the region, but everyone also holds extensive knowledge for most of the trout waters of the southern Appalachian Mountains and those specifically offered by the trip offerings of Reel Angling Adventures.
