Fly fishing the lowcountry surrounding Charleston, SC is a passion for Brown Dog Sportfishing.

Let us take you away from every day life and to our favorite flats and back creeks! 

Our most popular target here in Charleston for fly anglers is redfish.  In the warmer months, we hunt these fish on flooded grass flats looking for tails waving in the air. During cooler weather, these fish school up into large groups and provide excellent sight fishing on our shallow, low tide mud flats. Out typical slot fish run 15-23" with fish up to and over 30" not uncommon.


We recommend and use the following for our local redfish:
7 - 9 weight rod and reel
7 - 9ft tapered leader
Fly patterns resembling shrimp, crabs, and bait fish

We are also one of the few guides in the area offering Tarpon t
rips on fly when in season (June-October). These fish represent the ultimate challenge in our fishery and are for the angler looking to test themselves. Available as 3/4 and full day only.

Brown Dog Sportfishing uses the finest gear from Orvis but guests are welcome to bring their favorite rod(s) as well.

If you are newer to saltwater fly fishing we recommend reviewing these great casting tips and practicing before your trip to help.
