Fly Fishing in Beaufort, South Carolina

Fly Fishing Tactics in Beaufort, SC

DSCN0405

Beaufort has some great fly fishing opportunities and some of the best action comes together during the winter months. As the water temperature drops our water clarity becomes crystal clear, similar to the bonefish flats of South Florida. The best part about redfishing though is that they will readily take a well placed fly and are much more forgiving than those spooky “ghosts”. This time of the year we are generally looking for big schools of fish. Many schools will have a mix of different sized fish ranging from 2-10 pounds. For the most part we don’t need to make super long casts, but you do need to be accurate. If you can cast 50-60 foot of fly line relatively accurately you can catch these fish. I use a number of different flies, but my most productive pattern is simply a white deceiver. If fly fishing is your thing give me a call. Until next time, catch em up. Captain Charlie
