Capt. Peter L-J, or "L-J" as people know him, started fly fishing with his father at the age of 8 and never looked back. Hailing from the Connecticut and New England area, each summer was spent chasing striped bass, bonito, bluefish, and false albacore. During his younger years he also spent a great deal of time on his grandfather's farm in the lowcountry of South Carolina and that is where his love for the area grew. After attending the College of Charleston, Capt Peter explored a couple different career paths before following his heart to his true passion of fly fishing.
Captain Pete is a purist in lowcountry living. From wildlife photography to bull red fishing and more, Peter lives and breaths Charleston’s iconic humidity. He has cemented himself as a premier fly fishing expert who developed his reputation in the marsh and amongst his peers. As one of the resident Orvis Endorsed Guides, his professional attitude and demeanor lend to unforgettable days on the water. In 2021, at the age of 30 and entering his first tournament ever, Capt. Pete guided his good friend and angler to a 1st Place finish out of 75 teams at the annual 'Charleston Fly'. Peter is consistently exploring, fine-tuning, and most importantly putting his clients on their dream fish. Get ready for a shot of education, life, and premier sight fishing when aboard his 2019 Maverick hpx-s. Regardless of season Peter is always itching to be on the water. Charleston offers a diverse year round fishery with a multitude of species to target throughout the year. You are guaranteed to have a good time.
