Winter fun continues fly fishing for reds

fly fishing for reds

Paul Rankin wanted to get in on some winter time action this week, and we did get some fish, although the clouds made it a bit tougher.  It never ceases to amaze me how a thin cloud can shut out the lights on you.  We started out with a bang, Paul had to catch a fish on the first cast to a nice group of fish cruising through the grass.  Anyone who has spent some time on the water knows the first cast syndrome.  After Paul and I got so politely got cut off on the flat that we were fishing we decided a change in venue was in order.  We headed to another flat and smacked a fish as soon as we pulled in, then things became a tougher with more clouds and a little more wind.  We managed a couple more, but with the sun getting lower and the wind picking up we headed for home.

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!!
