John with his 1st red on fly. Looks like another Chris Webber pattern hanging out that fish’s mouth

My neighbor John got a fly rod and was ready to put it to good use on some reds.  John had never done salt water fly fishing, but had been practicing on the bass ponds around his office.  A little practice had paid off.  After a couple of eats that he missed John put the stick to a nice red. I’m always stressed when some one wants to get their first red on fly.  John got it done and his dad ended up hooking into a good’n later in the day.  Getting the first one is always the toughest.  Nothing can ruin a mans cast faster than a school of 25-50 reds coming at him !

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!!
