How We Fish The Flats

We fish the flats with spin fishing gear and fly fishing gear. We offer some of the best equipment in the industry made for this sort of fishing but you may still bring your own.

A good bit of patience is required for flats fishing. Stalking and hunting fish requires being quiet and can take some time to get on them.
