Just wait until you see what we have in store for you here.
Georgia is host to some of the country’s best trout fishing. Seriously. Amberjack has over ten outfitters that offer prime access to trophy Georgian trout on multiple different rivers and streams. Many of these outfitters are based in the Chatahoochee National Forest, an expansive natural reserve that spreads across Georgia and Tennessee. The mountain streams and rivers here are full of indigenous Appalachian brook trout and big stocked browns and rainbows, some reaching over 25” in length. Many outfitters offer bespoke trips, so the activities and intensity of the day will mostly be decided by you. Both wading and floating options are available in this pristine wilderness, and both spin fishing and fly fishing are widely practiced in Georgia. For beginner fly fishermen, many outfitters offer classes and fly casting schools.
If you’re more of a saltwater fisherman, head down to Savannah. Here, you can fish for redfish and sea trout in the Georgian tidal estuaries. Anglers will also be able to target tarpon and sharks throughout the day.

Fly Cast Charters
St. Simons Island, GA
Imagine being poled down a low tide flat, fly fishing red fish, with so many red fish they bump the bottom of the boat. The Capt. shows you the wake made by the ten pound red. You cast your fly a few feet in front of him. Capt Dave quietly says, “Strip–let it sit. Bump it.” You do, and a ten pound red fish explodes on your fly in ten inches of water. Your drag screams as the big red fish takes you to your backing. This is what fly fishing red fish is all about. Imagine wading the flooded spartina grass flats fly fishing red fish in some of the Southeast’s most beautiful and unspoiled marshes. You see several tailing and feeding red fish. The Capt. puts you in the perfect position for a cast. You choose the biggest tail, make a cast about a foot in front of him, and within seconds he grabs your black toad fly, and he is off to the races, with your drag screaming. After a five or ten minute fight, you slide your hand under his belly, have your picture taken with him, and gently revive him, letting him swim off to fight again. Fly fishing red fish doesn’t get any better than this. Imagine you are in the middle of the sound, and the Capt. points to a series of ripples about 200 yards away. You motor close to the school of Jack Crevalle and drop the trolling motor to quietly get in front of them. You grab the 12 wt fly rod, throw a big bunker pattern in front of the school and can’t believe it as 25-35 lb Jacks fight for the fly. One grabs it, and you are in for a fight of a lifetime. Forty-five minutes later both you and the fish are totally exhausted as the Capt. lips the 30 lb jack and hoists him aboard for a quick photo and a satisfying release. Fly fishing for big Jack Crevalle is like hooking a Mac truck. This is what we do, “Hunting Fish in the Marshes of Glynn.”
River Through Atlanta
Yes, a high quality trout fishery does run through Atlanta! In fact, there are 48 river miles of designated trout water with over 9,000 acres of protected park lands managed by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the National Park Service.

Savannah Fly Fishing Charters
I have been Fishing Savannah and the Georgia and South Carolina coast for 20 years and Guiding for 15 years full time. My experience goes far beyond chasing red fish. I have guided through out the southeast, Alaska and the Bahamas. Putting people on tarpon, reds, permit , bonefish,cobia,and jacks and many other species. This has helped me understand what works and what doesn’t work fishing. What you will not get from me in a charter, is a quick ride to the nearest beat up flats and back at the dock in exactly in 4hours. My half days run long, because 4 hours is just not long enough to fish. You will get a quality fishing trip to areas that the fish are easier to fool. This is because I pride myself on finding and fishing new areas. Just seeing fish and saying they just will not eat is not in my vocabulary. I have been the only guide in the area to put customers on Tarpon and Bull Reds consistently using fly equipment.

You'll see a century of moments suspended in time through photographs of legendary industrialists and former presidents, as well as decades-old books and artifacts.
