adAs the title states I spent last Friday Fly fishing the Hilton Head Island with some nice schools of reds. Jim Gillmore and fishing partner Adam had a decent day landing 8 fish on fly and spin. We had light winds and no sun so spotting the fish was tough, but with the fish popping small fry we were able to get some to cooperate. Saturday Tommy Webster and I hit the Beaufort area in a 25kt wind and managed two nice reds, one on fly and one on spin. I wish I had my camera yesterday just to show the winds, we literally had whitecaps starting 20feet off a leeward bank.

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!!
