I always hear people tell me every time they get out on the water they learn something new. As a guide I am out on the water over 200 days a year and with over 6 years of guiding I still learn things every day. My job is to try and put people on fish to help write the stories of their outdoor experiences. For many fly fisherman the Holy Grail is making an 80’ cast to a school of bonefish, fooling a tailing redfish into eating a crab pattern, watching their reel sling water as it goes into the backing on a 150lb tarpon, or wearing out a huge popper only to see the water rise as a peacock bass is closing in. I am looking for the things I learn along the way that will help me do my job better in each trip I take. What I learn is my wealth here in the Lowcountry, and as I learn I hope to pass on some details that will help you in your outdoor adventures.
I have wanted to start this blog for sometime now, the straw that broke the camel’s back was a day that taught me more than most and yet another person bringing up the fact that they learn something every time they are out, that sat me down to type. The state of SC has 50% of the entire east coast’s marshland water, with another 25% just to the south in GA and though I mostly fish in this fishing mecca, I hope that some detail I record in this blog helps you in your fishing endeavors no matter where you fish.
