I had the opportunity to fish with Capt. Jeff Johnson earlier this November in Rockport Texas.. He was by far most knowledgable and hard working guide I have had in that area. Despite a fairly stout wind, he was able to help us find fish all day long. He was excellent with his instruction and very patient, as I was new to flats fishing. Overall, it was a great experience and I will be booking with Capt. Johnson and Fly Fish Rockport again next month!

Had an amazing day on the flats with Jeff. He put me on a ton of fish for a weird, but great day and we had some even better conversation. Hard to say anything bad when your guide puts you on a 40+ inch red in December and gives you 2-3 shots at him before you line a fish of a lifetime and blow it out. Thanks again for the life long memories. I will be one of your most loyal clients for years to come I can promise you that!!!!
