Well we have been having some great days on the water, but I have to be honest we have had some very tough days as well. If the wind is right seems as though the fish are happy and willing, but all that can change when it starts cranking around 20mph. I was at the Atlanta fishing show and had a conversation with some folks that hired a local guide with a big bay boat to go fly fishing. The same old story, he couldn’t put them on reds and ended up fly fishing for gar. Then the bait came out for some shark fishing. This story is all to common with this guide. I have heard it way more than 1 occasion. Make sure if you hire a guide to pursue reds on fly the guide has a up to date shallow water skiff. The game has changed and reds are becoming very educated and stealth approach is necessary for fly fishing. Large bay boats do not provide this at all. I have not had the chance to go but the striper reports have been good with plenty of fish being caught. When the tides come back down we should be seeing some real good striper action. I will be in Central America for the next week surfing. If you want to book a trip please send an e-mail to Savannahfly@msn.com. If I can find computers I will respond if I don’t I will contact you at the end of the week.

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!!
