Susan Thrasher started fishing at a young age with her dad in East Tennessee and has been passionate about the outdoors all of her life. In 2004 she started Southern Brookies Fly Fishing, a guide service and instructional school, based in Nashville, Tennessee. She left a successful engineering career in 2015 to venture into the business full-time.
Her passion for fly fishing lead her to serve as the co-founder of the Music City Fly Girls, a women’s fly fishing group, and to serve as the middle Tennessee retreat leader for Casting For Recovery, a program focused on breast cancer survivors and the healing nature of fly fishing.

Music City Fly Girls
Susan Thrasher is a professional guide and instructor in East Tennessee. She co-founded The Music City Fly Girls a “no drama” fly fishing club which is a bit different than most clubs you may have been part of.

In addition, she is a certified casting instructor through FFI (Fly Fishers International) and has taught hundreds of students the art of fly casting. She is the author of Thrasher‘s Fly Fishing Guide, published May 2020. Susan currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee, just a short drive from her beloved Caney Fork River.
