Guided by Austin Lowder
Flats Inshore River
Raised in Billings MT, Florida, and Austin TX, Austin has been a fly guide between Southwest Montana and the Gulf Coast of Florida for over 20 years. Truly, he was born to fish. Austin’s sense of adventure and bulldog determination to catch fish take him to the ultimate fly water in search of solitude, beautiful scenery, and of course, elusive fly-eating gamefish. Austin is on a shortlist of Florida fly fishing guides who graduated with a degree in Fish and Wildlife Biology from Montana State University in Bozeman.
Florida saltwater fly fishing for Redfish, Snook, Tarpon and Cobia in this lush and tropical fishery will challenge any fly fisher, from novice to master! Anglers from far and wide dream about sight fishing the unique waters of Boca Grande and Charlotte Harbor with a fly rod, and for good reason, too. There are tremendous opportunities for visual strikes in this pristine one-of-a-kind fishery. If feeding flies to cruising tarpon in the open shallows, busting snook in the mangroves, or hunting tailing redfish in knee-deep water gets your heart pounding then you are in the right place. Austin encourages you to bring your own gear, but can supply rods, reels, and secret weapon flies from his collection. He also provides water and ice aboard his baby-blue 17' Maverick flats boat. This sweet little boat is the ultimate saltwater skiff! Read More
