fly fishing for red fish

It’s that time of the year when numbers are good for sight casting nice schools of fish.   John Kennedy and his son John headed out with me and what a good time on the water we had.   As we began our day we poled all over the flat not finding a single fish.  The longer this went on the more I began to stress.  Due to this flats remote location I had no fall back in case I couldn’t find them.  Well after an hour of looking we hit major pay dirt.  John’s son had never caught a red before and, he managed to nail four on the spinning rod and larger size John nailed four on the Buggy Whip.  Then We put large size John on the pole and I had the chance to catch a couple of reds.10 fish sight casted to, not a bad day.  We have had some neat fishing at low water lately,  I have seen some nice fish belly crawling,With their backs out!  Not often do I see the pattern in  Dec. Jan.  and some nice tailing action on the low water as well.  I guess with the moderate temps the bait is shallow hence the pattern. The evening turned out to be awesome and we had a beautiful run back to Savannah with a incredible sunset to cap off the day.  The trout bite continues to be strong with non stop action going on.  If at first you don’t find them bounce around a bit.  If you don’t get bites soon, move. Trout will smack something if they are there.

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!!
