The Outfit

FlyWay Charters is a fly fishing and light tackle sight fishing guide outfit serving coastal Alabama. We specialize in saltwater fly fishing for redfish, black drum, jack crevalle, sheepshead, gar, and other species found in the shallows of Alabama's beautiful Gulf Coast. Come experience the wonders our marsh holds and capture memories sight fishing this incredible fishery. 

Our Fishery

Alabama provides the fly angler with a variety of species to target throughout the year. Whether you are a novice angler or a seasoned sniper with a fly, Captain Sam Glass can show you an adventure full of fun and fish. Alabama's redfish population gives an angler a thrill through out the year. Needle nose and alligator gar present an electric bite and tug. Sheepshead, or “Marsh Permit” are sure to challenge the most skilled of fly anglers. In the summer, jack crevalle school the flats offering knuckle busting, reel singing, and adrenaline filled experiences sure to stick with you dreaming of a time to come back. Big black drum tails waving you in will put serious bend in a rod. Our coast offers several scenarios to fish from sandy bottom crystal clear waters to fish hiding in the eel grass to white water roaring under diving birds. Come take a trip to the Bayou, the Island, or America's Amazon for an experience of a lifetime.


Your Captain is USCG certified and has a guides fishing license so you do not require one.

Your Captain

I grew up fishing the native streams, lakes, and rivers at the eastern base of the Appalachian Mountains in Virginia and North Carolina chasing trout, small and large mouth bass, and anything else that would give a pull. I found a job working for a fly fishing shop and guide service in Lynchburg, VA where my addiction to fly fishing set hook. In 2005, College brought me south to the waters of the Gulf of Mexico where I avidly tuned my skills chasing a bigger tug on the end of the line from Louisiana to Florida. During College I spent my summers in the Outer Banks learning blue water chasing blue and white marlin, sailfish, dolphin, tuna, wahoo, and much more. In 2010 I graduated nursing school with four days a week free to explore my passion for the outdoors and the Gulf coast. My row boat wasn’t helping me embrace my passion for sight fishing so I let it go for a flats skiff upgrade. 9 years later I find my self still dreaming of blue fringed tails waving from the shallows.
