Fly fishing for tarpon in Hilton Head and Savannah

Another Little Tybee poon on the beach
Another Little Tybee poon on the beach.  Fly fishing for tarpons not as tough as one may think. All you need is a boat with a trolling motor and a 11 or 12 wt fly rod with a large bait fish pattern.  If you don’t fly fish a spinning rod with a big doa terror eyes or hoagie, black or pearl seem to work best

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!!
