Been hitting the Hilton Head and Beaufort area for some great fly fishing for reds and cobia as of late. Today we looked for cobia with perfect conditions, and found what we were looking for. This was the first cobia for me and my customers for the season and I was pumped. Firstt cast, a bit short, second a little off the third cast was on the mark, this fish was between 40 and 50 lbs and was hungry for the fly! Only problem as soon as the fish was getting ready to eat a f-18 comes booming over head and spooked the S..t out of the fish. Better luck tomorrow. On a brighter note we have had some great red fishing on the fly around Beaufort I have added a few pics hopefully some cobia pics soon.

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!!
