FISH THE TEXAS GULF COAST

 

A SIGHT-CASTING EXPERIENCE

Though our retail shops are located in the Texas Hill Country, we are still able to provide a vast amount of saltwater fly fishing knowledge as our staff and guide have a combined 41 years of experience fishing the Texas Gulf Coast. If chasing tailing Redfish from the bow of a Hells Bay Skiff, while also devolping long lasting friendships and unbelievable memories sounds like your jam, then you're in the right place!

We will provide all of the fly fishing equipment necessary but please feel free to bring your own. Days on the flats can have some pretty variable conditions so please prepare correctly by taking a look at our recommended equipment list on our trips overview page.

description

Come explore the year round fishery of the pristine Upper Laguna Madre Complex. Predominantly based out of Rockport and Port Aransas, your day will be spent with your guide poling the shallow water ecosystem in search of Redfish. This unique fishery allows the angler the opportunity to work together their guide while sight fishing with fly in hand. The most novice and experienced angler can be satisfied with this exhilarating style of fishing. This area is arguably one of the most noted and pristine fisheries! With a vast amount of shallow clear water flats, miles of marshland, and isolated shorelines, the area is perfect habitat for skinny water sportfish. Shots at fish in the 8-12 lb range are the expectation, with the 15-30 lb. range seemingly common. Certain times of year can even yield the very real possibility of catching fish in the 40 lb. class!


WHAT’S INCLUDED

  • All gear is provided – if you do not wish to bring your own equipment, not to worry; we have top end equipment designed to withstand long battles and endure the harsh saltwater environment

  • All flies, as they are designed specifically for areas we will be fishing

  • A cooler full of ice, water, non alcoholic beverages, and a boat lunch per guest


WHAT’S not iNCLUDED

  • The sun in South Texas is harsh, but proper clothing will protect you; most lightweight, UPF clothing works well as it dries quickly, prevents sunburn and keeps you cooler

  • Polarized sunglasses; rose, amber, brown or yellow lenses preferably

  • Lightweight hat; a dark underside on the brim works best to keep the sun and it's glare out of your eyes

  • Any medications you may need while on board.

  • A great attitude – we are out there to have fun catching fish! We are out there to have fun catching monster fish and creating lasting friendships; please let us know before your trip of any special accommodations you may need
