Captain Doug Jowett (aka Captain Pine Tree) has been fishing striped bass since 1963 with a fly rod. He specializes in the use of Spey/Double Handed fly rods on coastal waters.Captain Doug Jowett has taught fly fishing since 1980 in his own fly fishing schools in Maine and Canada as well as at some of the most prestigious fly fishing schools in the United States. His fly casting skills have been demonstrated at numerous sportsman's shows while his knowledge of coastal fly fishing has been featured in many national publications. Captain Doug fishes every day from the first of May into mid-October.  

Doug will take out beginners and experts alike. The waters he fishes can be easy or challenging according to the skills of the anglers on the boat. Group seminars are available by special arrangement.

Striped Bass fishing in Maine and on Cape Cod is a mixed bag with fish from 12 inches to over 40 inches always a possibility.

Bluefish are almost always available during May and September on Cape Cod and during late July and August in Maine.

False Albacore are the targeted species on Cape Cod in September and October. Stripers and Blues are available in September and are considered bonus fish then. The excitement of fishing False Albacore is a special early fall treat to any angler.

Blue fin Tuna (SBFT) are fished on the waters of Cape Cod Bay during the month of September and Maine during July, August and October. Commonly referred to as "baby" tuna, they range in size from 25 to 150 pounds. A challenge to any fly fisher.  This is a demanding game which requires sturdy equipment, patience and Federal Permits which I have.

Early morning is the usual hour of departure, but special arrangements may be made for other times. The early morning hours are definitely the best times to catch fish.
