Meet Capt. Derr

 

Living and fishing on the East End of Long Island is a very special thing. The lifestyle here is truly lovely and the fishery is robust and very diverse. The different seasons and the baitfish that they usher in allow us to approach the fishery in several different ways, making each part of the season unique and exciting.

“It’s so visual. You’re watching everything happen, even the things you don’t catch. You see the fish, present the fly and see what happens. It’s a neat little tête-à-tête,” says Derr, who earned his captain’s license in Florida in the 1990s and has been running fly-fishing charters out of Greenport from late spring through November for about 12 years.
