Golden Isles Fly Fishing in March and April was great and difficult.  We battled wind, rain, fresh water, but when the

weather gave us a break, we made the most of it.  Tim returned to St. Simons to sample some Golden Isles Fly Fishing in early March.  We were greeted with a foggy, slick calm day on the flats.  We were still in a winter pattern with big schools, clear water, and very cooperative red fish.  We saw well over 100 fish that day.  Tim is a great caster.  His skill, combined with a custom 7 wt rod, 14 ft leader and #2 Red Fox Clouser brought 3 nice fish to the boat that day.

March brought the Spring Breakers to St. Simons to sample some Golden Isles Fly Fishing.  For this Daddy/Daughter trip we fished for whiting for Naomi and then fly fished for  Dad.  A fun time was had by all.

The last of April brought Tim from NC back to St. Simons for some Golden Isles Fly Fishing.  After battling dirty water and high wind I found a sheltered flat holding some hungry Bull Reds.  Tim managed to bring two to the boat.  One a 14 lb 33″ Bull and the second a 10 lb 30″ Bull.  These fish gobbled a chartreuse Chernobyl Flash Bang. The big reds were tagged for the DNR and released (Recipe for the fly to come soon, so keep checking back.)  Golden Isles Fly Fishing can be difficult at times, but if you keep at it and never quit, you can find success.

Claudiu battled high winds and overcast weather but managed to sight fish a nice red fish.  Golden Isles Fly Fishing is so much fun.

Gotta love the blue tail

The triple tail are in front of Jekyll, and the May full moon tides will bring tailing fish to the marsh.  The trout bite will pick up as the fresh water is flushed out.  If you are in the area, and want to sample some of our Golden Isles Fly Fishing, give me a call, and let’s go “Hunting Fish in the Marshes of Glynn.”
