Manhattan Fly Fishing Charters is owned and operated by renowned Captain Chris Hessert.Being raised overseas, Chris has been fortunate enough to fish many, many places around the globe.
Chris has fished the waters of South and Central America, the Caribbean and Bahamian archipelagos,
as well as the Rivers of Northern and Western Europe. He has also fished the Outer Banks,
the Monomoy flats of Chatham and the Hawaiian waters for "jurassic" sized fish.Chris has always been a proponent of light tackle, making chase that much more rewarding when landing a "Lunker".
Chris has been fishing the waters around New York City for over thirteen years. He has a working knowledge of the area. He has fished the waters from Hells Gate, down the tidal canal (East River) to Upper New York Bay thru the "Narrows" and out to blue water of Raritan Bay, Jamaica Bay, Breezy Point and Sandy Hook (where the action can really pick up during the migratory seasons!) When oceanic conditions are just right and provide warm eddies cycling off the Gulf Stream, you will surprised at just what species will cruise into our waters that can be given chase.
