MarshOnTheFly Fishing Guides

Peter R. Scafaru

Captain Peter Scafaru, C.I. caught his first fish, a bluegill, at 4 years old on a worm with a cane pole in Ohio.  Thanks, Grandpa! Boy, was he excited about that fish, and his passion continues for all the species he catches to this day.  Growing up spin fishing and baitcasting, he made fun of his older brother who was dabbling with fly fishing, but found it fascinating and started reading everything he could about it and casting in the pool.  As soon as he got a car he began taking trips every weekend to fly fish the wild creeks of northern and eastern Arizona and spent many summers as a trout bum fishing extensively in Arizona, Baja Mexico, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, California, Wyoming, Wisconsin, Monatana, Washington, Florida and Louisiana.  Peter is also an accomplished jazz musician and music instructor and is proud to call New Orleans his home- a place where both the music and fishing is world class.  His knowledge, enthusiasm and patience with all things fishing will make for a great day with any skill level of anglers.  He is excited to get you out on the water and have some fun catching big fish!

Captain Michael Evans

Capt. Michael Evans was born and raised in South Louisiana where he began fishing the marshes of Louisiana as soon as he could hold a fishing rod. After graduating from LSU with a Bachelor's in Political Science, Michael hit the road to Jackson, WY where he enriched his passion for fly fishing. It didn't take long into his guiding career up north for him to realize this passion for sharing great fishing experiences was something he wanted to bring back home to the marshes of Louisiana where he could hunt down monster redfish and truly put folks on the fish of a lifetime.
