boats & equipment

Only top quality, new equipment on my boat. No canepoles and pangas here!

Fly or Spin? It's your choice.

Sage flyrods, Tibor and Bauer Flyreels. Shimano spinning reels and spinning rods.  Nothing but the best for my clients.  If you plan to bring your own tackle, please discuss it with me. Some of the species we pursue need special attention when choosing your tackle.  All rods and reels will be supplied at no cost. All fishing licenses are included as well as any bait, tackle and flies at no additional cost.

The Boats

    We will be fishing from either my Maverick Mirage HPX or Mitzi ST tunnel hull Skiff. They are shallow draft boats especially designed to get into skinny water, quietly and quickly. Who needs long casts? These boats are incredibly quiet and have the ability to get closer to our game fish than you might have thought possible.
