Headed out yesterday with the red crusher Paul “Spankin Rankin”.  this guy does nothing but catch fish.  It’s great to start a client off fly fishing in the salt and watch them grow into a terror on the flats.  Paul has caught reds up to 40 lbs with me on fly and tarpon around 120lbs on fly with me as well, not to mention the number of reds he has harassed on the flats.  This guy has come a long way in a short 2 years.  Kind of a funcky day yesterday to start with,  we had some super clear water and couldn’t find good groups of fish. As the tide bottomed out and started it’s way back in here came the schools, and I mean some nice groups.  Problem was they were not too interested in our crickets we were tossing at them.  After going thru the entire fly box we decide to move on and see who else we could harass. Bingo!  as soon as we hit the next flat the water was super clear and much happier fish.  We banged a few fish and decided to do some recon on a few old spots Paul and I have fished over the years.  Didn’t find much else to play with, but that’s alright, the sun was out the winds were not too bad.  That’s saying something this winter.

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!!
