Our Story

Offering year round fly fishing trips along the coast of Northeast Florida.

St. augustine, Florida

If you are visiting the "Oldest City" on vacation and need a break from the historic downtown and beautiful area beaches St. Augustine also host a great year-round inshore fishery. The water is clear enough to sight cast to redfish on the flats or pushing wake in the many tidal creeks that flow through the marsh. Because of our location, anglers can generally find protected water to fish and usually have reasonably calm water in the backcountry creeks.

Imagine stalking tailing redfish on a flooded grass flat or casting a fly to backing redfish in water barley deep enough to cover their backs. Sound like fun? Then climb aboard and experience some of Northeast Florida's best year round sight fishing.

"Every day on the water is a learning experience whether you are a novice or professional, get out and enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer." – Capt. Tim


"I've known Tim for years. He's a good angler and a good teacher. There's a common thread to both attributes. You need to be patient and persistent to find fish and to work with clients. A lot of guides can find fish. Tim can find fish and help you become a better fisherman. That's not easy to do. Book a trip with Tim, and your angling skills will grow exponentially."

"I’ve had the pleasure of fishing with him on many occasions while targeting different species under a wide variety of conditions. His knowledge of the St. Augustine area waters, ability to take into account the many variables of a particular day and adjust the game plan on the fly when needed to locate fish never fails to impress. He’s helped me achieve several “first on fly” and “personal bests” and is most definitely an outstanding and passionate fly fisherman. But, in my opinion, what makes Capt. Tim an excellent guide is his patient and spot-on advice, courteous manner, sense of humor and sincere belief that the entire experience from start to finish should be fun and exciting. I can hardly wait for my next opportunity to be guided by Capt. Tim!"
