Okay all, sometime back I posted about hosted wade fly trips to the Chandeleur Islands using the Chandeler Islander jack up barge as the lodging. Details are as follows: Need a minimum of 4 people with a 2 night minimum stay. Rates are $200 per night per person and that includes meals. Transportation to and from is $200 per person leaving from Pass Christian, MS. Once you are on the barge a pontoon boat will drop you off close to the island and the fishing begins. It's hard sand with grass and species include red fish, speckled trout, drum, and jacks being the top four. The usual salt water fly gear is all you need with 8 and 9wt's covering most everything that swims out there. I use Hodgman wading boots but tennis shoes work as well. Typical clouser style flies with a few poppers will cover the fly selection. Call me with any questions, 985-768-6933 and check out the website www.chandeleur-islander.com.
Hands on fly fishing school coming soon. This will be an on the water school with the opportunity to actually cast to fish instead of sitting in a classroom and casting at grass.
