I started my fishing addiction at the age of four in the Catskills. Largemouth Bass and Sunfish were the early targets, which later evolved into Trout. I picked up my first fly rod at age 10 and caught my first wild Delaware River Rainbow with the help of legendary guide Lee Hartman. Fly fishing soon become my passion and favorite method of fishing to this day.
Ive been working in the fishing industry since the days of dishing out sandworms in the local B&T at age 10, to owning a shop on Long Island with my father in my early twenties. I’ve worked on the water as a baymen for over 10 years and have further extended my knowledge of the local waters. I know these areas and the fish that inhabit them like the back of my hand. This experience and time on the water is essential to making your day with me the most enjoyable as it can be. There’s is nothing more rewarding to me than sharing my knowledge with you to help you become a better fisherman. Beginner or experienced, there is always something you can learn from an experienced local guide like myself.
We are equipped with two boats to make the most out of the fishing opportunities on Long Island.
2000 Maverick Master Angler 17
This boat is specialized for stalking fish in skinny water, with the ability to cut through a Long Island Sound chop. Get to the areas where others cant, comfortably and safely. Sight fishing for striped bass and bluefish in as little as 10" of water is an experience everyone should have.
2022 Pair Customs 21 DV
The Pair Custom 21 DV was built to be the best boat in its class. When the fish are out of the back bays and out in the big water, you will be more than comfortable with this rig. Designed with a deep vee to cut through chop, the possibilities are endless. Equipped with state of the art Simrad Electronics, Minn Kota trolling motor and all the customization a hardcore fly and light tackle fisherman needs.
