Welcome to the world of Saltwater Fly Fishing and the home of Flat Out, the most relaxing and enjoyable fly and light tackle fishing trips the Outer Banks has to offer. Experienced anglers and families or anglers looking for a first time fishing adventure will feel equally at home with us.
We run half or full day fishing trips in the sound and near-shore ocean depending on weather and fish availability. No matter what your skill level, our goal is to have you casting to, hooking and fighting your own fish.
Our specially equipped 23 foot center consoles Jones Brothers Boats are a dream to fish from and are stocked with top quality tackle for you to use (or you can bring your own).
For your convenience our boats are docked at the world famous Oregon Inlet Fishing Center, located just minutes from great fishing. Oregon Inlet Fishing Center is easy to find, simple to book a trip through, has a well-provisioned ships store and a fast fish cleaning service.
