Captain Ethan, an Orvis Endorsed guide, grew up in Annapolis, Maryland around the Chesapeake Bay. As an avid waterman Ethan’s love for fishing didn’t truly start until his baseball career ended after college and he moved to Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina in 2014.
Once sports ended for Captain Ethan he needed something to focus his time and drive towards. Ethan caught his first redfish with a gentleman that did the build out for the family business, Fractured Prune Doughnuts, in Surf City, North Carolina. After Captain Ethan felt the pull of a Redfish, he knew he had found his newest sport.
Captain Ethan studied fishing like he was prepping to win a national championship game. With an athletic mentality he sharpened his craft by learning the tidal fluctuations, water temps, and staging areas depending on seasons of where fish will be.
After he had the fish dialed in on a spinning reel he looked for what was next. Captain Ethan picked up a Fly rod and knew that this was the sport he had could dive into. Captain Ethan started tying his own flies and went through stages of in-depth learning to figure out what the fish liked and did not like.
Many years of fishing from Wrightsville Beach to Swansboro later, Captain Ethan is ready to put his knowledge to the test and offer productive trips and to educate foreign anglers to how he plays his sport either on Light Tackle or Fly Fishing.
