Folly Beach, South Carolina
4 hour trips are great for first timers, as well as days with extreme temps whether that's hot or cold. Most fly trips are planned around the tides due to our extreme tidal changes. Fly rods, reels, and flies are included with the trip but if you're more comfortable with your own equipment then you're welcome to bring it as well. Bottled water and ice is always on the boat as well as sunscreen and bug spray. Expect to have less than a 15 minute boat ride and most of the fishing time will be in back creek systems and flooded grass flats with majority of the water being 2 foot to less than 1 foot deep. All experience levels welcome.
6 hour is the most common and offers the best experience. The two extra hours from the four hour allows for fishing of almost an entire tide cycle. This trip is spent primarily in back creeks and flooded grass flats. Expect less than a 15 minute boat ride, and fishing in water 2 foot to less than 1 foot deep. Rod, reels and flies are included but if you're more comfortable with your own gear you're welcome to bring it. Ice, bottled water, sun screen, and bug spray are provided as well.
This is a great way to get familiar with the amazing fishery the Lowcountry has to offer. On this trip having the entire day allows us to fish two tide cycles. The main targeted species is Redfish but can absolutely be adjusted to what the angler would like to target as well.
Exact meeting location will be provided after booking.

Tidal Waters Guide Service is owned and operated by Captain Conner Bryant, a 4th generation Carolinian. With an obsession for fishing since he was a young boy, he couldn't get enough of fishing local saltwater marshes, flats, creeks, as well as the open ocean. On his 10th birthday his grandfather bought him his first fly rod and he hasn't put one down since. Captain Conner began his career on the water working as a mate on local charter fishing boats, gaining experience with both inshore and offshore fishing. He then enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard serving as a Boatswain's Mate, and then later in Marine Conservation. Captain Conner is passionate about salt water fishing and wants everyone experience this type of fishing for themselves.
