Some of the most beautiful, gin clear flyfishing waters in the Northeast are found on the eastern end of Long Island, New York. The classic sightfishing strategies that have been so successfully employed in the Florida Keys are now ever present here in the Hamptons in places like Shinnecock Bay in Southampton and Gardiner’s Bay in East Hampton. During the Spring and Summer we will hunt for bluefish and striped bass as they feed in inches of water across bright, sandy, rock strewn flats.
I have had the good fortune to fish with Captain White for many years in the bays of Eastern Long Island and at Montauk. Merritt is a superb guide and a true gentleman. He knows his home waters very well, and he is willing to go to any lengths to locate fish. Whether we experience an epic bite or have to work for the fish, I always have a great time fishing with Merritt.Bob W.
