Float into the water with Greg for an exciting fly-fishing adventure on some beautiful Texas rivers!...Read More
On this 4 to 8-hour fly-fishing trip, Greg will float you out on the Brazos River, a smaller tributary such as the Paluxy River, or one of the many of the area lakes. Here, he'll give you some of his expert fly fishing tips as you target several fish species including Largemouth Bass, Spotted Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Striped Bass, Hybrid Striped Bass, White Bass, and a variety of the Sunfish species. There is even Carp, Smallmouth Buffalo, Freshwater Drum and Gar.
No matter your experience level, from beginners to experienced, Greg is passionate about making your day on the water one to remember. Whether it’s floating the scenic Brazos River, wading the “hill country like” Paluxy River, or taking you out on one of many picturesque lakes, Greg will guide you to a Texas sized, fun filled, fly fishing trip of a lifetime!
Depending on conditions and where the fishing is the best, Greg will choose from a couple of options for the best way to go. You'll either be aboard a custom 16 1/2 foot Hog Island Skiff with a Jet Motor or a 14 foot Aire Raft equipped with an Outcast fishing system. These vessels are very stable and comfortable, and are great for getting through shallow water.
Greg will provide flies, leaders & tippet, fly rods & reels (available by request, please make arrangements prior to your trip), drinks, snacks and will even do some expert photography to leave you with some pictures! Lunches will be provided on the full day trips as well. All you need to bring is a valid Texas freshwater fishing license, and we recommend polarized sun glasses, a hat, rain gear & clothing for the season and sunscreen. You are welcome to bring our own fly rod and reel.
He recommends a 4-6 weight Fly Rod for wade trips on smaller waters such as the Paluxy River. However, on the Brazos River or one of the many area Lakes, he prefers a 6-8 weight Fly Rod. Big flies allow opportunities to catch some bigger fish but require a heavier fly line. Big fish are also easier to control and land on a 6-8 weight fly rod.
In terms of lines, he recommends floating, weight forward and shorter taper fly lines. On the Brazos River and some of the lake areas, there are times when an intermediate sink, or sink tip and full sinking lines are best.
Enjoy your day on the water and catch some fish with Greg!

Regardless of your experience level, Captain Greg is passionate about turning your day on the water into the fishing trip of a lifetime.
Whether it’s floating a scenic Hill Country river or wading a limestone stream, head out with Captain Greg on the hunt for the Hill Country Bass of your dreams. In addition to Largemouth Bass, you'll also be casting to Guadalupe Bass, Sunfish, Carp, Bluegill, White Bass, Rio Grande Cichild, and more.
Captain Greg grew up fishing throughout Central & South Texas. He started fishing in 1976 as soon as he was able to hold a fishing pole, and started fly fishing exclusively in 1998.
Captain Greg offers a wealth of experience to expert and beginning anglers alike, and can lean on his experiences fishing for Stripers on the Red River below Lake Texoma, as well as memories chasing Redfish of the Lower Laguna Madre. That being said, Texas Hill Country streams and Lakes are his passion. He fishes for Rainbow Trout on the Guadalupe River below the Canyon Dam as he has since 1976.
Expanding his expertise in the sport, Captain Greg took up the art of Fly Tying in 2004, and a large majority of the flies Captain Greg puts to use are flies he tied. Captain Greg loves the thrill of watching clients catch fish on his flies, and even had the opportunities to fish with some of the greats, including Bob Clouser, Colby “Pops” Sorrells and Kyle Hand to name a few.
While he's been guiding since 2012, Captain Greg also earned extensive experience working in the fly fishing industry. From 2007 until 2008, Captain Greg served on the Auction Committee for the Fort Worth Fly Fishers. From 2010 through 2012, Captain Greg served a 2-year term as President of the San Gabriel Fly Fishers located in Georgetown, TX.
If you wonder where you might have seen Captain Greg in the past, he worked for Sportsman's Finest in Austin, TX from 2010 until leaving in 2019, spending the last 7 years as the Fly Fishing Manager.
While guiding on Hill Country lakes, rivers, and streams for Largemouth Bass, Guadalupe Bass, Rio Grande Chichild and more, Captain Greg concurrently works as a Manufacturing Sales Rep for companies in the Fly Fishing and Outdoor space.
