Tarpon On Fly

Ben Austin and I decided to doa bit of fun fishing yesterday and boy am I glad.  Afetr having a bit of fun with the reds I told Ben we arn’t gonna get a tarpon red fishing.  Off we went. We get to the spot and the fish are rolling.  We had a few shots that didn’t come thru but on the 3rd fish it all changed.  Ben tossed the fly right across the fish’s nose !  The fish just got this little shake and inhaled the fly.  Clear tthe Decks!   It didn’t take loong though for the 80lbs fish to got thru the 50lbs leader.  We have  a few fighting picks that I’ll post soon. Scott Owens has been getting them down south and I believe now this is a consistant deal as long as the wether is right.  We had fish laid up, tails out of the water. Damn I’m going again!!

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!!
