Captain Chadwick has dedicated his entire professional career to the sportfishing industry. Fresh out of high school he began guiding fisherman in the streams around his home, the Shenandoah Valley. The passion led him west to Montana for a few seasons and ultimately the voyage continued north. Spending the next 10 seasons in the Bristol Bay region of south-west Alaska, he honed his teaching skills on some of the finest Salmon, Char, and Trout rivers. The dream of guiding year-round first became a reality in 2006. The waters of Alaska and Patagonia made up for over 300 days on the water. Saltwater fishing pursuits were always how this veteran Trout guide spent his time during the “shoulders” of other seasons. The coast of North Carolina always called to him: his favorite destination ultimately became home, and Topsail Island, NC marks the center of the fishing grounds.
