Long Island On The Fly: Fly fishing and light tackle charters with Capt. Andrew Derr
Welcome to Long Island on the Fly, light tackle and fly fishing charters. We are located on the east end of Long Island, New York. Long Island on the Fly specializes in light tackle fishing and fly fishing for striped bass, bluefish, bonito, and false albacore tuna. We offer fishing 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.
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. We do this with both fly rods and light tackle spinning rods.
In the Summer months, we spin fish and fly fish around Orient Point, The Gull Islands, Fishers Island, and Gardeners Island where the waters are cooler and large bass and bluefish reside. This oft overlooked time of year can be extremely rewarding.
When the famous Fall run begins, we dock our 23′ SeaCraft (equpped with 4-stroke Suzuki outboard motor) in Montauk, NY. We fish Montauk Point and the surrounding waters for striped bass, bluefish and 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.
Flats Fishing Rates: $500/4 hours, $600/6 hours, $700/8 hours (equipment and cooler drinks provided)
23′ SeaCraft Rates: $500/4 hours, $750/8 hours (equipment and cooler drinks provided). $50 fee for 3rd angler.
(50% deposit required upon confirmation of booking any Fall dates)
