What you'll do

Experience fly fishing the outer banks in its purest form. SUP Fly Fishing is an option to wading now! The order of activities depends on tides, wind, etc. We will start your experience tying my own original OBX fly, "The Dirty Harry". Fly tying is optional. It's your day.

Next we string up a fly rod and warm up that casting stroke. If you are brand new to the sport I can certainly help you get to a point where you can fling that Dirty Harry in a spot that may just hold one of our many local fish. Which include but is not limited to Speckled Trout, Redfish ( aka Puppy Drum), Striped Bass, Bluefish, Flounder, Ocean Perch, Sea Mullet, Pompano, and even Largemouth Bass (our sound is brackish water).

So then we will head to a likely spot to wade fish one of several premium shallow water spots. Where we fish will depend on the current tide, wind direction, etc. We may fish from Kitty Hawk as far south as Hatteras. The weather is ever changing here and usually dictates where your fly fishing opportunity will lie. Fly fishing the ocean surf can also be very rewarding & challenging.

I am a local artist and fly fisherman who has fished the outer banks since childhood. I love to share my knowledge of fly tying my simple but deadly Dirty Harry fly patterns and offering suggestions on how you might better cast these flies to our variety of fish that inhabit our diverse sounds and dynamic ocean. I enjoy wade fishing the sounds as well as the ocean surf. I love all types of shallow water fishing.

Where you'll be

We will start your experience tying your own Dirty Harry Fly in Kitty Hawk, NC.

Once your creation is complete we will tie it on to a fly rod (yours or mine) with a suitable leader and warm up that cast. Now let's explore the outer banks!

Then to a likely spot to fly fish one of our local wading/surf hotspots is search of one of our many local species. Speckled Trout, Redfish, etc.

I had an awesome trip at an awesome location. I landed several fish and learned a lot. I have been on several guided fishing trips and I would say Harry is the best I’ve been with. Great value and great experience!!!

Loved fly fishing the OBX with Harry! I have experience freshwater fly fishing but this was my first time in salt, and Harry made the difference for me. He was able to pick the right locations based on season, weather, tide etc. to optimize my time on the water. He knew the tides, currents, and behavior of the fish and I was able to learn a lot about reading salt water. Harry tailors the experience to suit your level as an angler. He has the right amount of awareness and balance. In other words, he is there to help and teach, without overdoing it. He was friendly, punctual, informative and super easy to get along with. His genuine interest was to put me on fish, which he did! He kept me fed and hydrated throughout the day, and later showed me his signature fly. Great day and well worth it!

This was a wonderful experience as I was looking to start fly fishing in the Outer Banks and looking for insight from someone that knew the area and what was needed! Harry met all of those expectations and we caught fish! He was very willing to share his knowledge of the area, possible places to go, gear, etc. He was also open to changing his schedule. I was scheduled to go out with Harry on a Monday but weather conditions were less than ideal. We moved it to Wednesday for much better weather and it paid off! Overall it was a great experience, I learned much and Harry got me into some fish which was icing on the cake!

Exceeded my expectations! Harry is definitely an expert but very down to earth giving practical advice, excellent feedback and encouraging coaching. He custom tailored the day to fit my needs, interests and ability resulting in a truly rewarding experience. My only disappointment was not being able to buy a fly rod on the Outer Banks so I could keep practicing the rest of my stay. If you're even slightly interested - just do it! You won't find a more friendly, patient and knowledgeable instructor than Harry.

It was a lot fun getting tie flies and getting out there to wade. Harry was very helpful and made the experience enjoyable. He is in a beautiful location we started out right in front of his home and caught a few fish there. I definitely would recommend giving this experience a try.

Bring water shoes if warm enough, otherwise chest waders are suggested. Like to fish from a Stand Up Paddle Board??? Let's do it! It's a great way to find more fish and challenge yourself.
