The Guide @ SMGS
Britt Stoudenmire
Britt Stoudenmire is originally from the lowcountry of South Carolina and graduated from Virginia Tech where he pitched for legendary Hall of Fame baseball coach Chuck Hartman. A hard core river veteran, the 2020 season marks Britt's 17th year as full time fishing guide. He and his wife Leigh co-own and operate New River Outdoor Co located in Pearisburg, VA. They offer guided smallmouth and musky trips and private, waterfront cabin lodging at Walker Creek Retreat which also doubles as SMGS's Musky Camp during the winter season. In addition, Britt and Leigh have co-hosted The Life. Outdoors w/Britt & Leigh web show and aired episodes on their website. Britt has a passion for hunting BIG FISH and the "elusive" musky is no exception. Britt has traveled as far as Wisconsin, Michigan, and Canada to hone his musky fishing skills, and fishes and guides on both the New and James Rivers all season long for these beasts when not guiding for smallmouth. Britt stresses the importance of knowing "where they live" as being the key to taking advantage of the small windows of opportunities they often give, and there is no substitution for time on the water for learning their haunts. Britt's relentless spirit and passion for the hunt drive him to become a better anger/guide each and every time he has the opportunity to hit the river, and he loves to share that enthusiasm with his clients. Britt is either a member of the pro/guide staffs or affiliated with G.Loomis, Shimano, Power Pro, Gamma, Ross, Scientific Angler, Frog Hair, Royal Wulf, Patagonia, Chaco, Smith Optics, Kast Extreme Gear, Llungen Lures, Stealth Tackle, Drifter Tackle, Adam's Custom Lures, Simms, and Pearson Plugs.
"Britt - thanks for the photos from the February trip, Gary forwarded them to me. I've shared your info with all my fishing buddies, and told them I'd be glad to accompany them on a trip. I told a buddy today about my upcoming June trip to Canada for northerns, walleye, and smallmouth. He asked if I was going for musky also, but I told him that I've caught more and bigger musky right here in Virginia!" Bob P, VA
"Thanks again for a great day on Sunday – that was a definitely a top 5 fishing highlight for me.  You work really hard and we appreciate it.  Now on to the next one…!" Mike W, VA
"After several years and many successful bass fishing trips with New River Outdoor Co, I had my first ever Musky fishing experience. Britt is a terrific guide and helped me put three muskies (two citation sized) in the boat. Like all the NROC guides, he works hard and really knows the river and the fish. Highly recommended by a repeat client." Mike D, OH
"Britt is definitely a master in his trade. He knows the river and how to find the fish. Learned some new techniques and by the end of the day had two trophy muskies in the boat for a great day on the water! Have already recommended his services to friends and hope to make a trip back in the Spring to get in on the trophy smallie action. Also a big thanks to his wife Leigh for taking care of all the arrangements! Many thanks your friends at WaterDog." John R, VA

"Leigh and Britt, Just wanted to say thank you again for the (musky) trip the other day, it was Awesome, and you guys were as well. Britt really is a pro and worked hard for us and I'm telling everybody to use you guys! You're the best!" Mark M, WV

"Thanks for a first class trip! You guys are the best! You slay dragons!" Frank G, TN

"Britt and Leigh, The (musky) trip couldn’t have been better. I can’t believe I got those 2 monsters in the boat. Thank you for putting those pictures on facebook. My office décor is growing (see attached) and will add to it in the future. Andy and myself will be back next year...I can’t wait." James S, VA
