Chesapeake Bay Guided Fly Fishing Trips
Maryland’s Finest Fly Fishing
Offering expert guided fly fishing trips on the Chesapeake Bay and Delmarva Coast.
Some quick background:
I grew up and have lived most of my life in Maryland, on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. The Chesapeake allows year round fly fishing opportunities from its northern-most reaches on the Susquehanna Flats, south to the Delmarva Coast. On the waters of the Chesapeake, the striped bass, or “rockfish” as we call them here, are king. Though we fish often for other species such as bluefish, sea trout, mackerel, and more, rockfish are most often our target.
Basic Chesapeake Bay Fly Fishing Trip Info
All Chesapeake Bay fly fishing trips are aboard a well-equipped 23 foot Parker center console. I have over 15 years of fly fishing experience, and am a licensed and experienced captain. I travel throughout the Chesapeake Bay and Delmarva’s coastal waters to find the best fly fishing around. We fish with some of the finest fly fishing tackle and gear available. Whether you're a novice or experienced fly angler, you can be assured an enjoyable day on the water catered to your individual needs.
I can accommodate up to 4 anglers on any given trip. Light tackle and spinning gear is also available for those who are not familiar with, or choose not to fish with with fly tackle.
