Murrells Inlet Fly Fishing
SC Saltwater Fly Fishing Guides
Just about every fly fishing angler has heard of redfish. They’re such an incredible fish to target in our marshes along the coast. Here in SC we target them in many ways. Whether they’re tailing during our flood tides or crawling the banks at low tide it will definitely get your blood pumping. Redfish can be caught during all months of the year. Summer time behavior typically has them in smaller schools and further apart while the wintertime months bring them together in groups as large as 100.
While targeting redfish in the marsh you can often find yourself with shots of other species as well. Speckled trout, black drum, and flounder are just a few of them. Want to get crazy and have a decent weather window….. well let’s go in the ocean and chase Tarpon, Cobra, and Spanish Mackerel or even a few sharks. Obviously mother nature plays a huge roll in all of these as well as time of year.
Our goal here is to make you as successful as possible. We want to give you the best possible shots to land a fish that we can celebrate about and tell stories to your friends. While out with us we will educate you about the area, species, and even help to dial in those casts.
Fly Fishing Details
We are based out of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. This gives us the opportunity to fish our local marsh or travel a few miles to Georgetown, Little river, or even down to McCellanville depending on the bite and time of year.
Our boat is loaded and ready for battle. We run a Hells Bay Guide which go just about anywhere. She is outfitted with a Yamaha 70hp, Simrad electronic, mini Kota trolling motor, and a Marshtacky Carbon Fiber push pole. Depending on how it’s loaded it can get into 4 ½ inches of water. We can stealthily sneak up on schools of fish and no need to worry she has a full set of lento trim tabs to soften the ride if the bay gets choppy. The deck is large and offers both the captain and angler elevated sight points so we can work together as a team.
We provide everything for a successful day. Two fly set ups will always be on the boat as well as two light tackle setups for days when it will work better. All flies, lures, bait, and a cooler for drinks. If you want to bring your own things just let us know and we will make room for it.
Things to bring include sunscreen (no spray), polarized sunglasses, non scuffing shoes, hat, and appropriate clothing. Weather is sun rated clothing or rain gear in case.
Fly fishing trips are by appointment only. Feel free to call or text to set it up.
