Fly Fishing Hilton Head, Savannah, And Beaufort

A few weeks ago Paul Rankin and I were looking for some fish that havn’tbeen beat down.  We just so happen to come across the Bay of Pigs!  These fish are big and shallow.  Seems as though the school is all 20 lbs plus fish and they cruise with their backs out.  Damn it man!  The past week has been as good of red fishing in the shallows as I have seen with some big fish in real shallow water.  The winds have been light, the bugs a pain in the ass, but the fish,

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!!
