Captain Joe Benton
Captain Joe’s lifelong addiction to fishing began as a child growing up in Central and South Florida. As a young man he moved to Colorado to pursue his growing interest in fly fishing and it didn’t take long before Joe was earning a living as a drift boat guide. Over a decade spent on the rivers and streams throughout the Rocky Mountains, Joe gained a great deal of knowledge and experience and has developed innovative techniques for sighting, hooking and landing various species of trout. He continued to fish for trout and warm water species in North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia until 2011.
Now, in the low country of South Carolina, Joe continues fly fishing for a variety of saltwater species. In his spare time, throughout his fishing career, Joe has become an expert at tying creative yet functional flies. He enjoys sharing what he has learned and works for the Charleston Angler in Charleston, SC teaching fly fishing classes and giving presentations and demonstrations of his techniques. Captain Joe also conducts guided trips for both the professional angler and the novice alike.
