Team NROC 2020
Roy Roy Stanford may be new to Team NROC, having joined us in 2019, but he is a rising star in the fishing business. So much so, that we have elevated him to co-Lead Guide for the 2020 season. Starting in March 2020, Roy will be co-leading "Team NROC" along with Britt. His roles will include more direct client communication and coordination (particulary, with day trips), helping coordinate our day-to-day fishing strategies between clients and guides, and increasing our social media presence across all platforms. Roy is a gifted angler and we have received excellent feedback from our clients who have fished with him. Roy loves both smallmouth and musky and he can't wait to get the 2020 season kicked off!
Randy Fuqua

Randy Fuqua has guided for us off and on for quite some time. However, the last several years he has become a very intergral part of our team. Some would call Randy a smallmouth fanactic and, if you want someone who can help you dial down the big smallmouth, Randy is that guy. Randy puts in a lot of time on both the New and James Rivers in his free time and loves to pass on his knowledge with clients and friends. Randy joined the "6lb Club" in 2016 with a beautiful fish from the New River, a high honor for a river smallmouth angler. We are glad to have him on our team even though we have to overlook his allegiance to the Tennesse Vols (Leigh is a Florida Gator alum).

Andrew Fenstermaker Andrew Fenstermaker started running shuttles for us many moons ago when he was in college at Virginia Tech. Armed with a natural fishing talent and a desire to be outdoors hunting and fishing, Andrew progressed into guiding very quickly and worked with us until he graduated. Now married and a very successful New York Life Insurance agent, Andrew is back helping us with both smallmouth and musky trips when his schedule allows. Andrew is a very accomplished musky angler with some really big fish to his credit. We are blessed to have Andrew on our team and know you will have a great time fishing with him.
Ethan Ethan Stone joined us for the summer of 2019 and has proven to be a very important part of our team. Currently studying National Security and Foreign Affairs with a minor in Russian at Virginia Tech, Ethan is the president of the Virginia Tech Bass Fishing Team and former runner-up National Champion with his high school bass fishing team. He'll be graduating from Virginia Tech in the spring of 2020 and is planning to work with us through the end of the summer/early-fall season. With his easy-going demeanor, Ethan has proven to excel with young anglers and their parents and is absolutely a big numbers guy!
Scott Guilliams Scott Guilliams has fished the New and James Rivers for over 20 years. We contacted Scott over ten years ago after reading an article in VA Game & Fish where he was helping writer Bruce Ingram install food plots for deer. Long story short, we barted a fishing trip for a food plot. After our trip on the New River together with his brother Jason, who has also fished for us, his passion for smallmouth fishing progressed into guiding for us and the rest is history. Scott ties his own spinnerbaits and buzzbaits, so if you fish with him, make sure to tie on a couple because they are definitely a "big fish" bait!
Steve Journell Steve Journell is one of our very best friends and has guided with us longer than anyone. Steve is an avid angler and hunter and has fished the New River for over 30 years. Nobody works harder than Steve to provide a quality day on the New River and his energy is contagious. Steve is also owner of J&J Grocery at the junction of Route 100 and Walker Creek. His deli's breakfast and lunch sandwiches are a hit with our fishing clients and cabin guests. Steve now works full time at the Radford Arsenal but is still able to help us when his schedule allows. When not working, Steve loves to chase stripers on Claytor Lake and spend time with his family.
Britt Stoudenmire New River Top 5 Britt Stoudenmire, our original Lead Guide, graduated from Virginia Tech and The Citadel and was very fortunate to pitch for legendary Hall of Fame baseball coach Chuck Hartman while at VT. He is an avid outdoor enthusiast and has hunted and fished his entire life. A lifetime catch-and-release angler, Britt firmly believes in respecting and protecting our watersheds. Britt has always loved big fish and focuses the majority of his winter and early-spring guided trips on targeting mature river smallmouth and musky while teaching his clients the techniques needed to effectively pursue these fish. Britt believes every day on the New River is a tremendous privilege and that "This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24
