Embark on a fly fishing adventure with Captain Richard Gardner through Galveston’s huge expanse of sand, grass, and mudflats that provide plenty of opportunities to cast away at your favorite gulf coast inshore species! Captain Richard specifically targets redfish but you could reel in some drum, sheepshead, jack crevalle, and speckled trout.
Captain Richard’s offers 5 hour (a half-day) and 8 hour (a full-day) trips depending on how much you want to fish. His skiff is a great host for you and one other person. You must have a Texas Parks and Wildlife Fishing License with a Saltwater Stamp.
Capt. Richard will provide 8,9, and 10 weight rods, but you can also bring your own. He will also provide light snacks.

Captain Richard Gardner of Galveston on the Fly's passion for the water started as a young child running the brackish waters of the San Bernard River and Intercoastal waterways along the upper and middle Texas Coast. Eventually, Captain Richard found himself as a teenager wading coves and shorelines of the Galveston Bay Complex with his closest friends who shared the same passion.
Years later, moving away from conventional angling, Captain Richard picked up a fly rod and immediately fell in love.
Ever since, his true passion has remained sight casting at tailing or backing Redfish in the surrounding marsh and sand flats of our beloved Upper Texas Coast. The Galveston Bay system provides ample opportunity for sight casting and stalking your favorite gamefish with a fly rod in hand.
Captain Richard has been fortunate enough to fish with guides in many different countries in the South Pacific, Caribbean and Central America that have fueled his passion for fly fishing, and Captain Richard strives to share that passion and knowledge with you while we traverse the local waters in search of Redfish, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead and Jack Crevalle.
As a guide, Captain Richard's goal is to make memories that will last you a lifetime and make your day on the water an enjoyable one. He prides himself on being patient, respectful and most importantly, competent.
Captain Richard operates a Sabine Technical Poling skiff that is specifically tailored for the Galveston Marsh. It was manufactured by fishermen for fishermen. His equipment is top-notch and in great working order. There should be no worries or concerns once you step onto the skiff with Galveston on the Fly.
Lastly, Captain Richard is a fly fishing only guide with a conservation mindset. He practices C.P.R.(Catch, Photo, Release) tactics to ensure these fish and nurseries are here for the next generation of anglers and guides!
Richard was an awesome guide - he had us on redfish the entire time despite it being overcast and windy. He’s also incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. He thoughtfully answered all of our questions and offered clear casting instruction throughout the day. Will definitely be back to fish with him in the summer.
Spent a day on the water with Richard and he put me on my first Redfish with a fly rod! Great experience, great rig, great guide......highly recommend!
