Fly Fishing the surf is a lot of fun, but after a few hours it can begin to wear you down. That's why we suggest a Half Day (4/5 hour) session that gives you plenty of time to fish the optimal low light conditions without getting wiped out!
Learn the different techniques used to fly cast on the beach! Single hand and/or double hand sessions which include: maintaining line control in the surf, fishing with stripping baskets, casting multiple fly rigs, etc. Learn how to read the surf, understand the tides, and understand the species of fish we are seeking. We tailor each trip to the individual whether you are a beginner or advanced angler!
Is fly fishing the surf new to you? Have you been attempting to fish the surf but are not confident in what you are doing?
