David and Rick came down to the low country to chase some critters round the low country. Man we had some highs and lows during their trip. Seems like if the winds are light the clouds are messing with us, and if the sun is in full force the wind is a mild gale ! All being said we did have a good number of shots and caught some fish in the meantime. Story of the trip was loosing the entire fly line to a fish, after ripping all the line and into the backing he just kept going. All I saw was a long line of fly line screaming down the flat no longer attached to the backing. Ooops. I told them we have a good chance of finding the line in a bit, and that we did. The fish was still attached, but as we approached the line the fish had worked the fly out and the line was recovered to fish another .

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!!
