Captains Bio

Beaufort Fly Fishing Guide

 Captain Mark grew up in the northeast United States where he developed his fly fishing skills by catching some of the fiercest gamefish in the Atlantic. He learned techniques from the pioneers of the sport like Bob Popovics, Dave Skok, and others whom he observed first hand during various events. Mark's passion for fishing began at an early age, and not long after most boys his age were learning to tie knots, he was selling the flies he had tied commercially to local shops.

After high school, Mark headed south to Nicaragua and Costa Rica to guide professionally and further develop his skills. He gained extensive knowledge in rigging, boat handling, and other areas related to sport fishing in these two premier destinations for anglers seeking adventurous experiences.

Mark also proudly served our country in the United States Navy where he continued to explore angling opportunities across the globe. During this time, he discovered his passion for pursuing red drum, also known as redfish, which set him on a new journey.

Mark's love for angling led him to the South Carolina Lowcountry, which he now calls home. He utilizes his lifetime of experience and expertise to provide the best fishing experience for his clients in these murky and salt-laden waters. His clients attest to his unparalleled passion for fishing, making him one of the most sought-after captains in the industry.
