Fly Fishing Guides

We have full-time captains who are capable and experienced fly-fishing guides. All of the guides are USCG-licensed captains.

My fleet also includes 2 mud boats with Beaver Tail backwater engines, and an offshore boat for fishing sharks, cobia, and dolphins and cruising to the islands for wade fishing.

Captain Gregg Arnold

I was raised on Lake Bedford in Normandy, Tennessee. I have fished all the way from Key West to Acapulco.

I hold the fly-fishing 20# tippet IGFA world record for redfish as Captain with Conway Bowman as an angler. That monster weighed 41.65 pounds!

As Captain, I hold state records of first, second, fourth, and fifth for redfish as well as first for black drum and fourth for crevalle and jack.

Blaine Townsend

Blaine has been an avid fly fisherman for the past 16 years. He has started to share fly fishing tips and tricks with beginners.

Cocodrie is a hidden gem for anglers who are looking for a relaxing day of fly fishing. It offers some of the best fly fishing in the state. You can catch large Redfish, Black Drum, and Sheepshead and enjoy the scenic views of the coast.

Captains Travis & Brian Holeman

Accomplished anglers both in fly and spin. Their mission is to have a great day every day and provide the opportunity of a lifetime to their clients.

Splitting their time between fly-fishing, casting competitions, and the Professional Redfish Fly Fishing in Beaufort, Travis, and Brian have devoted their lives to the fishing industry and being the best Captains possible.

Captain Barrett Brown

My partner in E-Z Fly Guide Service. He owned and operated Southern Safaris, a local fly shop for 11 years.

He has been guiding and booking trips in South Louisiana for almost 20 years.

Captain Greg Dini

Born in Orlando, Florida, and began fishing at a very young age. By the time he graduated high school, Greg had mastered the waters of Mosquito Lagoon and the Charlotte Harbor area.

Greg came to New Orleans during his sophomore year of college to play baseball for Tulane University.

In no time he was out learning our water and has put in thousands of hours on the marsh, fishing and poling around in technical skiffs.

Greg has proven to be one of the hardest working guides on the Louisiana marsh and is a great addition to our crew.

All our guides have technical poling skiffs such as Hell’s Bay Guide 18, Professional 17.8, or Maverick HPX.
