   Capt John Isdanavage is the owner of Coastal Angler Fly Fishing & Light Tackle Charters. His experience has taken him from New Jersey, to Cape Lookout North Carolina, to the west coast of Florida. John spends most of his time fishing and guiding the surf along the beaches of the Jersey Shore and the Back Bays, his home waters for 30 plus years. You can find him fishing inshore, near shore or polling his skiff across the shallow flats of Barnegat Bay. John's season starts mid March and runs through the late fall into December fishing for striped bass, bluefish, weakfish, fluke and false albacore on both fly and light tackle. He welcomes all levels of experience from novice to expert, children to adults and is very eager to share his knowledge about the sport he is so passionate about. He is an avid fly tier, instructor, seminar speaker, and volunteer in the Jersey Shore Chapter of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, and a member of the American Saltwater Guides Association . John is an Ambassador for Temple Fork Outfitters, also a Pro Staff Angler and Guide representing Cortland Fly Lines, Yeti Products, Gamakatsu Hooks, Columbia Sportswear, and Flymen Fishing Company.

   It is important to me to make the most out of every trip and share with my clients the sport I am so passionate about. Whether its a fly fishing or light tackle trip I will always do my very best to make your trip as memorable as possible. 

                                                                    Striped Bass Policy

   For many years I have been an advocate for catch and release and very rarely keep any fish. I have a strict 

 NO KILL  policy for striped bass unless the fish is unrecoverable after being landed. Due to the decline in the coast wide striper population CPR, catch, photo, release, will be practiced in order to help rebuild our striped bass fishery.


 Coastal Angler Fly Fishing is fully insured for wade and boat trips. John has his NJ State Police boating safety certificate, USCG Captains License and is certified in CPR and basic First Aid.
