We've had a blessed year and that's had us extremely busy and having so much fun! We wrapped up the 2018 Texas Alligator Season with a bang and Fall fishing has been phenominal with guests from all over the State, Nation, and the world. From wade fishing artificials and live bait to boat fishing trips, guests have been having a ball. We hit a few flat spot days here and there and that had Capt. Kolten Braun on the move scouting fresh country and opening the door for the rest of the Wolf Pack ahead of a heavy schedule. TKS Instagram
We've got a lot of great fishing ahead with family and corporate groups ahead. We hope you'll be among the guests!
Texas Kayak Safari Launches
In the back office, we've been working feverishly on bringing to life our new website for both www.seadriftflyfishing.com and www.texaskayaksafari.com We managed to get them both launched lately so check them out. We've still got lots of kinks, a couple bugs, and content modifications to iron out but we'll be chipping away at that as we go. Check out Texas Kayak Safari(http://www.texaskayaksafari.com)
Wilderness Pack Trips - Next Possible Insertion November 29th thru December 2nd Call 888-618-4868 for Reservations. PACK TRIP EVENT
Texas Kayak Safari specializes in "outward bound" camping and glamping pack trips surrounding all styles of fishing, touring, and the outdoors with the best "bush country guides and watermen in the business". Wendi and I just got back from an insertion at the end of September and I've got to tell you, it was absolutely amazing. Barrier island wilds, big weather, great fishing, and plenty of relaxation in the great outdoors. The fishing and camp site were awesome. We hit the insertion on a 15 knot North wind and that was a brutal setup for the fish right out the back door of the tent. Catch & release with a few for dinner made for magical experience.
New Sponsor - Seadrift Fly Fishing

We also offer Full Moon trips for wade fishing with bait or topwaters. We've just added "Bow Fishing" to our list of adventures and we'll be working the upper marshes and lower bays.
