Welcome to Long Island on the Fly, light tackle and fly fishing fishing charters. We are located on the east end of Long Island, New York. We specialize in light tackle fishing and fly fishing for striped bass, bluefish, bonito, and false albacore tuna. We offer trips for everybody, from novice to expert angler, children to aged veterans. The beauty of this area and the excitement of this sport creates indelible memories and experiences for me and my clients. Our goal is to put you on the fish and create a memorable, fun, low pressure fishing experience for our customers.

Seasons:

In the Spring and early Summer we are usually targeting fish on our pristine flats using a traditional flats boat to silently stalk stripers in the skinny shallows of the Peconic and Gardiner’s Bay. This amazing fishery allows anglers an opportunity to stalk striped bass to 30 pounds in 1′-3′ of water. It is true sight-fishing and as exhilarating as fishing for striped bass gets.

When the famous fall run begins, we dock our 23′ SeaCraft (equpped with 4-stroke Suzuki outboard motor) in Montauk, NY. We fish the Point and surrounding waters for the great bass fishing and a now very dependable run of false albacore tuna. Demand is high for these trips. They fill up quickly so be sure to make your plans and book early if you intend to get in on the action.
