About

I'm a Texas coast fly fishing guide based out of Corpus Christi, specializing in sight fishing for redfish. I got my first fly rod for Christmas when I was 13 years old and it changed everything. Since then I've had the pleasure of working as shop staff for both Orvis and Roy's Bait & Tackle. I've also spent my summers guiding in Alaska since the age of 22, first with Fishing Bear Lodge and currently with the legendary Tikchik Narrows Lodge in Bristol Bay.

Corpus Christi is centrally located on the Laguna Madre's endless miles of crystal clear grass and sand flats where we can target redfish and spotted sea trout, with occasional shots at black drum, flounder, and sheepshead. Nestled between Padre Island and the mainland, the Laguna Madre is home to more finfish than anywhere else on the Texas coast. It's a major stop for migratory birds, hosting 75% of the redhead duck population in the winter, and it may be one of the wildest places I've experienced outside of Alaska.

The fall redfishing is phenomenal all around, with winter providing many great opportunities and milder temperatures. As spring arrives, we can hunt for trophy speckled trout on Baffin Bay or go pole back lakes and sight fish.

My goal is to provide a memorable, safe, and educational day on the water where my guests walk away with a better understanding of fly fishing, and a deeper appreciation for the fishery I love.

I’ve known Brendan for 5 years and have shared the water with him many of times. Not only does he have an understanding of fish behavior but he also is great at teaching what he knows to others. A skilled and knowledgeable captain and all around good dude, you’ll have a great time on the water with him.
