Delta Fly Fishing

Come experience the crystal clear waters in Mobile Bay and the Mississippi Sound with Delta Fly Fishing! Captain Ben Cummings is an expert in these shallow waters and will have you sight fishing for a variety of species. Fly fishing enthusiasts – this one’s for you!

You’ll be casting off of Capt. Ben’s custom 17’ skiff. He’ll pole into extremely shallow water to get you your best shot at tailing Redfish! She’s ideal for a pair of anglers who want to have a productive day on the water. Anglers with experience are preferred, but all skill levels will be accommodated.

Speckled Trout, Redfish, and Black Drum are some of the species you’ll be going after. You can either fly fish one at a time or go spinning simultaneously. Capt. Ben encourages catch and release but is happy to clean and fillet any catch you do choose to keep.

For lunch, Capt. Ben will grill up some hotdogs on his portable grill to keep you going! He also provides sodas and bottled water, which you’re free to help yourself to throughout the day. Any other snacks and drinks you’d like to bring on board can easily be stored in the cooler. Your fishing license and all necessary gear are also included.

Test your fly fishing skills and enjoy a productive day in the shallows with Delta Fly Fishing!
