Delaware Bay Charters
Flexibility is important when it comes to the Delaware Bay. The Irish Fly has a long range capability. We fish the jetties and rips of the lower bay and light house structure/sloughs of the upper bay. We fish the rips and other structures targeting breaking fish with fly and light tackle. We chunk for striped bass in the spring and fall and drift for flounder, croaker and weakfish during the summer months.
Coastal and Inshore Charters
We will run the beach, just beyond the breakers, when the bait fish are in close looking for schooling/breaking fish. We fish structure - jetties, inshore bouys, wrecks, artificial reefs and inshore lumps with fly and light tackle through out the season.Targeted species include resident and migratory striped bass, weakfish, bluefish, sea bass and flounder. As the water temperature rises in late summer, false albacore and dolphin can be caught further offshore using flies, artificial lures, live bait and trolling tackle.
Combination Fly Casting Instruction and Fishing Charters
These charters are a minimum of six hours designed to introduce the angler(s) to the exciting sport of saltwater fly-fishing. Instruction includes the basics of casting, specialized knots, overview of equipment (rods, fly lines and fly selection) and reading the water. Anglers later apply their knowledge in on-water situations.
Quality Tackle, Bait, and Flies
Irish Fly Charters provide quality tackle for use on its charters. Temple Fork and Diamondback fly rods are matched with Abel, Ross and Orvis Reels loaded with floating, intermediate and sinking fly lines. St Croix light tackle rods (spinning and bait casting) are matched with St Croix, Penn and Avet reels. The rods are pre-rigged, allowing the angler to quickly change from top water to sub-surface presentations.
Custom tied flies are available to target specific species of fish. We also provide cut or live bait depending on the time of the year and the species of fish that are "running".
