I’ve had the good fortune to fish with a few great guides in the Chesapeake Bay and DELMARVA area. The guys below are phenomenal, and are well worth the financial investment.

The number of Fly Shops in the area has drastically decreased in the age of e-Commerce. Nonetheless there are a few good fly shops that will help you select gear, find the right flies, and learn tactics for local waters.
There are several great organizations in the area that support conservation of both tidal and non-tidal fisheries.
