“There’s a thin line between fishing – and standing on the shore, looking like an idiot.”
Whomever that quote is attributed to knew that surfcasting does not lend itself well to self-instruction. To really learn surfcasting, one needs to be shown. Unfortunately, instruction and insight are hard to find in a sport that is noted for it’s solitary and secretive nature. I know what it is like to struggle with surfcasting. But with a little help you can begin to have some success with your fishing. I can help you make significant progress in as little as one trip.
My name is Joe Lyons, and 2002 was my first year as a shore guide. My service is geared mainly toward beginning and intermediate anglers, those who think surfcasting would be a nice hobby to explore further. In addition to the guiding I can advise and provide you with tackle and outdoor wear and I offer support via email or the phone after your trip. I’ve made many friends through my guiding.
Whether you are a beginning saltwater angler, resident or traveler, I encourage you to try this traditional Rhode Island sport. If you are a veteran angler, in search of different areas to fish, or interested in someone else’s take on the sport, you are welcome also. Through my guiding, I’m attempting to de-mystify the sport – but that does not alter it’s mystique.
