Flats Boats Spotlight: First Cast Outfitters


Flats Boats Spotlight: Coastal Texas Redfish Charters

Growing up along the banks of the Yakima River in central Washington, Captain Jeff Johnson realized at an early age that fishing was in his blood. In 1997, he moved to Bozeman, Montana to attend college where he openly admits that he studied a little, but fished a lot. Spending his free time and entire summer’s trout bumming on the Missouri river, he honed his skills as an angler. After an eight year stint chasing steelhead up and down the coastal rivers of the Northwest, he returned home to the river he loved the most in Montana to establish First Cast Outfitters. Following one too many snowy winters, it was clear that the call for warmer climate and salt water would take him south. Now an established, First Cast Outfitters runs the Texas Coastal Bend as a service for hire.


2014 Spyder FX17 Flicker Flats Boat

I love my FX17 Flicker! It’s light, responsive and very quiet in the water.

Customizations / Modifications:
  • Stiffy Push Pole
  • Garmin GPS
  • K2-Cooler Summit 30
  • “A Few First Cast Stickers”
Fondest Boating Memory:

Who doesn’t love putting their new boat in the water. 1st boat or your 10th, you never forget that day you get your new boat wet.

This looks fishy. #flyfishrockport #flyfishing #redfishonthefly #rockporttexas @sundanceboats @k2coolers @smithoptics @echoflyfishing
