Any saltwater fly fisherman/angler has redfish on their “species to catch” list. They are such incredible fish. Here in Southeastern North Carolina, we get to see redfish in many different looks. Whether that be tailing redfish in a flood tide or crawling redfish in inches of water completely exposing themselves and even seeing their eyeballs out of the water looking for their next meal. That is more of a summertime behavior (April to November). Then wintertime becomes a whole different look at redfish. They will begin to school up when the water begins to cool off. Many years we will find groups of 50 fish to 100+ fish in a foot of water. Also, when it comes to wintertime water clarity here in Southeastern North Carolina it turns to gin clear. Which will make any sight caster droll.

My goal here is to make you successful. Giving you the best possible shots to land a fish we can high-five about afterward. I'm not just here to take you fishing but to educate you on my backyard. To help and give tips on how to double haul with tighter loops or to help you optimize your cast and accuracy on light tackle rods. Then to talk about conservation and the steps needed to lead to take to have a flourishing estuary. Not only here in North Carolina but wherever you may live too. BUT! Blow too many shots and the trash talk will begin from the poling platform! All in good fun! Come on out and learn something while catching fish!

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.
