Hilton Head fly fishing, Savannah fly fishing

What a funny fall it has been.  Temps have been mild for the most part, with some rather blustery days to say the least.  Not a problem.  The fish are wanting to get their feed on with the winter coming and the bait getting thinner.  Over the past month we have had some insane days whether fly fishing Hilton head or fly fishing in the Savannah area.  I have been having the itch as of late to go out and hit some dock lights for some trout on the fly.  This used to be such a fun way to spend a night, but I guess I got old fast and seems as though going to bed early is the norm for me.  Now that it gets dark early, this is done much easier.  A 6 or 7wt rod and a small clouser or popper and one can have all the fun one needs.  Last winter we actually had some stripers under a couple of lights. Some going around 15-20lbs.  Looks as though our next front is going to give us another 5 days of North East winds eliminating the ocean and chasing albies.  I think I’m over the N.E.winds !!!

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!!
