hilton head fly fishing

What a fun day of fishing.  It’s been a while since We have had the chance to go chase triple tail, and boy that’s what we did today.  Triple tail have to be one of the most fun fish to sight cast for.  Floating on the surface some pounce the fly while others follow.  Today it seemed all the fish were pounching the fly.  I had Chris Webber tie up a few flies for me just for the triple tail and they were the ticket.  We didn’t have a single refusal on the new cricket.   They also ate DOA shrimps tossed on light spinning tackle.  We ended the day with 6 trips and I’m ready to go get some more !!  Talked to some folks that hit the Broad River today for cobia and none were seen.  Seems as though the cobia in the Broad River have become a good way to waste time and money.  I guess that’s what happens when most folks are killing every cobia they catch.  I have watched that fishery decline terribly over the years and this year seems to be the worst so far.

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!!
