    My son and some cousins live in Augusta. If I knew anything about fly fishing, I'd totally jump all over this.

    A river runs through Augusta. Probably its only connection to fly fishing.

    Savannah River, which has two sizeable Corps of Engineers lakes just north of Augusta.

    There are actually a fair number of trout streams in North Georgia and northern South Carolina not too far from Augusta.
