About Captain Tom Horbey
"I have fished up and down the Texas Coast for 37 adult years, with 28 of those as a pioneer saltwater fly fisherman. I am able to accommodate for both fly fishing and conventional. In addition to guided fly fishing trips, I can provide casting instructions as well as general information about saltwater fly fishing." - Tom Horbey
As the only full time fly fishing guide living in Port O’Connor, Tom is able to guide year round. Licensed and fully insured, Tom can guide your next fly fishing, sight casting, conventional, wade fishing, or jetty trip. In the meantime, feel free to browse our consistantly updated photo gallery of recent trips.
Boats & Rigging
Fly fishing and sight casting are done out of my Stiffy Exile boat. There are only 3 of these boats in existence. They were specifically designed to fish the shallow Texas waters. It’s the shallowest running and poling draft of any boat available today.
My large boat is a 22’ 6" Majek Illusion, customized for fly fishing. This is a boat that I use for fly fishing or using conventional tackle on the beach and jetties for Tarpon, Jacks, Kings, and Sharks.
