Hilton Head Fly Fishing Charters

Fishing has been good despite the extreme low temps.  If the sun is out the fish have been more than willing to jump on any offer that is presented properly.  Tommy Webster on Saturday had about 15 fish day on fly and Andy Bowen and friends had a 20 fish day between 2 boats.  Had Ben Austin on Board with the guys from Cohutta fish co. to put some of the new Hardy rods thru some abuse.  The rods faired much better than the fish.  I have to say these Hardy Rods and reels are the shit!!  The rods are smooth during the casting stroke and light in the hand, the reels have the best drag in the business.      On another note if your coming to the area to fish I would highly recommend hiring a local guide.  I have had a couple of customers who had a certain guide come up here and fish them and had bad days.  Said guide had been taking folks to flats that doon’t hold fish anymore.   Money dosn’t grow on tree so make the most of your trip by hiring someone who fihes the area on a regular basis.

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!!
