It is always a thrilling ride to fish with Captain Gregg! I have been out on several memorable charters with Captain Gregg. On one occasion, I had my heart set on catching my first hard tail on the fly. We had put in, in Newport and when I told Gregg my hopes, without a second thought he said sit tight and we headed off to the walls. The rising sun and the setting moon were in perfect alignment when we arrived. He told me to stand ready and eased in on a school as soon as we arrived. One cast and I was on and my reel was screaming. My dreams had come through with my first Bonito! This was truly a great day as we continued to chase and catch more of these magnificent fish.
Another great memory came while working schools of bass off the Narragansett shores. We were having a great time landing striper after striper on the fly. This is always a treat even though we were catching schoolies. Captain Greg knew I kind of wanted to take home a meal however. While I was standing up on the bow casting he shouted, “Drop your back cast!” I laid it down as he instructed and it landed right in the mouth of what turned out to be a nice 20 pounder that went home with me. I suppose any guide can put you on fish, however it is a true skill when your guide can scan a school of breaking fish and pick out the monster in the crowd and direct your fly right into his mouth! I mean I have seen many a school of breaking bass, but I have never been able to look at them and pick out the keeper, Captain Greg can do this for you. Don’t wait, do it now! - Scott D
