Ben Austin finally made it back to town after traveling the east coast.  Ben is a rep for Orvis and gave me a call to see if I wanted to go wet a line. Sure, is all I could say.  I wanted to go look around and see what was happening in the local area, and what we found was good in a couple of flats and not so good in others.  That’s fishing right ?  I gave Ben one of Chris Webbers crab patterns to use and told him they have been crushing it.  First good shot we had, Smack !!!  This red took the fly off the top and the fight was on.  It’s nice to get out with an old friend when the two of you haven’t been fishing for a long time.  Crazy weather, the past 2 days felt more like July, then today, November.  Might be time to go look for a striper or two with the cooler weather.

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!!
