Location & Guides

Where We Fish

Island Fly operates primarily in and around both the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge located just north of Brigantine Island.

These protected areas comprise over 150,000 acres (235 sq mi) of tidal wetlands, sandy flats, barrier islands, shallow bays, and coastal ocean creating an incredibly unique fishery.

The Mullica River-Great Bay Ecosystem joins the Atlantic Ocean right at our backdoor allowing easy access to the fishery for our guests.

Owner & Guide: Captain Jason Moore

Raised in Southern New Jersey, Jason grew up fishing and surfing off nearby Absecon Island. From Australia to Central and South America to remote Tahitian archipelagos, Indonesia, the Caribbean, Africa, Tibet, and the American West, Jason has well and truly embraced adventure travel.

Drawing on three decades of guiding experience spanning rivers, oceans, and mountains, Capt. Moore is dedicated to providing an unparalleled adventure angling experience. His favorite expeditions lead guests to some of the world’s most extraordinary locales. Whether chasing golden dorado in Argentina, payara and peacock bass in Colombia, bonefish and barracuda in the Bahamas, redfish, and black drum in Louisiana, or some of the largest tarpon on Earth in the Nicaraguan jungle, he lives for your adventure.

With two decades of clinical experience as an emergency medicine, general surgery, and critical care physician associate, coupled with a Ph.D. in epidemiology, guests enjoy the highest level of personalized, top-tiered safety and medical support on every adventure.

When not hosting trips, Jason loves guiding guests for everything the New Jersey coastline has to offer for the adventurous fly angler ranging from striped bass and bluefish to flounder, sharks, and rays. He is an avid educator, industry consultant, and fly tyer, as well as a member of the American Saltwater Guides Association (ASGA).
