I offer sport fly fishing trips and instruction for large mouth bass , crappie , bluegill, spotted bass, striped bass, sand bass and hybrid bass.

I will customize trips to the fisherman's skill level or desired target species.

My home lake is Athens but will occasionally venture to Lake Fork, Cedar Creek for crappie (seasonal) , Lake Tawakani for sand bass, stripers and Purdis Creek for largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill(sunfish).

I practice catch and release but we do capture a lot of photos and if clients would like to take a few fish within state regulations, we will.
