About the Captain

Barry and the StriperI have been been guiding fly fishermen on a full-time basis for close to twenty years.  Fishing from a 20′ Action Craft Flatsmaster powered by a 200 hp Yamaha outboard, my years of experience and dedication to the sport of fly fishing give me a deep body of knowledge to draw on to catch fish and to teach others. I have been featured in Fly Fisherman magazine and in two fly fishing videos on the Outdoor Life Network’s Cable Channel and Don Phillips’ book, Saltwater Fly Fishing from Maine to Texas. I’ve guided some of the most discriminating anglers around and Lou Tabory acknowledges me in his book Stripers On The Fly and recommends me as a guide.My fishing career has taken me from the  Everglades and the West coast of Florida to the Keys, the Bahamas, Costa Rica  and Nicaragua but striped bass always lure me back to my home waters of the  Plum Island Sound.

I maintain a catch and release fishing policy on my boat. (But I’ll make an exception now and then for a nice tuna).

I taught my son to fly-fish and young people are always welcome.
