Well it’s almost 2016 and it has still failed to feel like winter.  The past week we have had temps in the 80’s.  I hate to say it, but I think I’m ready for a little cooler weather, but not cold.  We have been catching some reds in the grass and low tide as well.  That doesn’t mean it’s been on fire.  The fish have been available in short windows of the tide.  When they have been available there have been some huge schools to play with.  Chris Webbers Runaway shrimp pattern has been my go to fly all fall and winter.  Low and High water the fly has been doing it’s job !

I have been fishing the Georgia and South Carolina Coast for 30 years and guiding full time for 20 plus years. What you will get from me is a quality fishing trip, whether with fly rod or spinning tackle that is always a long time on the water for the rate. My half days run more like 5-6 hours and full days are over 8 hours. 4 hours on a half day just isn't long enough to fish. What you will not get from me is a quick trip to spots 5 minutes away that are fished heavily so can make it back to the dock in time for my next trip. I have guided through out the southeast as well as Alaska and the Bahamas. I have been instrumental in developing shallow water sight casting in Georgia and South Carolina and have been the first to introduce Tarpon fishing on fly rod to South Carolina and Georgia!!
