Long time customer and fly master Chris Lidy came down for Thanksgiving and was thankful for the reds giving it up. We sight casted 20 reds in some crystal clear water. It was one of those days that we had a bit of a time getting the fly they wanted and how we needed to work them, once we had the pattern we began busted some serious lips. It seems as though some of the schools I have been on for the past few years have been reduced to almost nothing, that being said I have had to do a bit of homework and go back to places I have fished in the past and have found some nice schools. As a guide I feel I need to be always looking for new places and doing my homework to make sure my customers are on good fish, not beat down fish that everyone knows about. The trout bite continues to be good and, the hot spot is between Tybee and Lil Tybee south of the dead trees.

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!!
