White Sulphur Springs, WV – January 24, 2014: Curtis Fleming, award-winning host of “Fly Rod Chronicles with Curtis Fleming” on the Outdoor Channel, filmed at The Greenbrier and The Greenbrier Sporting Club in April 2013 for an upcoming television episode, “America’s Resort on the Fly,” which debuts Monday, January 27 at 11 a.m. EST.
“I grew up in a small town in West Virginia surrounded by woods, streams, and rivers,” said Fleming. “Getting the opportunity to put my eyes on the detailed structure and grounds of The Greenbrier was absolutely amazing. To once again be reminded that the amazing state of West Virginia holds such grand treasures in its natural and refined resources is so incredible.”
In this episode of “Fly Rod Chronicles with Curtis Fleming,” Curtis takes his wife Shelly and his daughter Autumn to The Greenbrier located in West Virginia where they were able to take advantage of several fun-filled family activities, such as horseback riding, falconry, off-road driving, and of course, fly fishing the beautiful Howard’s Creek, a three-mile stretch of water that meanders through the resort’s 10,000-acre estate.

“The Greenbrier Sporting Club, the private residential community at The Greenbrier, offers every angler the opportunity to fish perfect streams, assisted by first-class guides, and to leave with memories of incredible once-in-a-lifetime trophy catches,” said Fleming. “My daughter and I had an awesome time fishing with Jacob; The Sporting Club members are certainly lucky to have him!”
Every week, Fly Rod Chronicles presents a compelling half-hour fly-fishing adventure show that brings viewers to the breathtaking beauty and majesty of the world’s premier fishing destinations. Each program provides authentic and exciting fishing action with informative instruction, hilarious entertainment, and insightful environmental issues.
“It was great having the Fly Rod Chronicles crew here,” said Jacob Ott, Director of Outdoor Pursuits at The Greenbrier Sporting Club. “Curtis was a blast to fish with; he only sort of hooked me a couple of times. If he keeps practicing his casting, soon he’ll be as good as his daughter.”
