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 250 square miles 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’s upbringing was defined by fishing and surfing along Absecon Island. His thirst for adventure has taken him across the globe, from Australia to Africa, Tibet, and the American West.

With over three decades of guiding experience in rivers, oceans, and mountains, Capt. Moore ensures an unmatched adventure angling experience. From chasing golden dorado in Argentina, jumping tarpon in the Nicaraguan jungle, and wrestling with yellowfin tuna off the coast of Colombia, he thrives on creating extraordinary expeditions.

Combining two decades of clinical expertise as an emergency medicine, general surgery, and critical care PA, and a Ph.D. in epidemiology, Jason provides guests with top-tiered safety and medical support throughout their journeys.

When not leading trips abroad, Jason delights in guiding adventurous fly anglers along the New Jersey coastline, targeting a variety of species from striped bass to sharks. He is also deeply engaged in education, industry consulting, fly tying, is an International Game Fish Association (IGFA) certified guide and a member of the American Saltwater Guides Association (ASGA).

Catch & Release Fishing

“We live for fishing and return the favor every chance we get.”

At Island Fly, we’re committed to conservation, which is why we operate as a strictly Catch & Release operation. From striped bass to bluefish, our local fish population relies on us to do our part.

“We fish with the fish in mind” and practice CPR (Catch–Photo–Release) Fishing, ensuring the health and sustainability of our local aquatic species.
