Fishing for Smallmouth with Bill Carman

Bill Carman is a hunting and fly fishing guide, and a successful outdoor writer. He is a graduate of the University of Kentucky with a master’s degree from Utah State University. He worked for 30 years designing parks and recreation areas before retiring and taking the position of Regional Director for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF). Bill retired after 10 years of wildlife conservation for RMEF and started Kentucky Wild LLC. In that capacity he guides hunters and anglers, conducts outdoor skill clinics, and is an accomplished outdoor writer. Bill loves introducing people to the joys of the outdoors!

His stories have appeared in numerous outdoor publications, and in 1993 he won the national Outdoor Life Book Club short story competition.  He has written three books of hunting and fishing essays and regularly conducts seminars on outdoor skills. Bill has hunted and fished all over North America, but his favorite pastimes are casting flies to Kentucky smallmouth and hunting Kentucky whitetails with his recurve. He and his wife live in Lexington where he is teaching his grandchildren the ways of the woods. Visit Bill’s website at www.kentuckywildoutdoors.com.

  1. I took a Fly Fishing Class from Bill Carman back in 2020 at Breaks Interstate Park on the southeast Kentucky and West Virginia border. Beautiful parks. It was a very interesting class. Bill is personable and a very good speaker. I look forward to seeing him again.
