“Fishing with Owen is special. He knows how to put you on fish and keeps you wanting to come back. Try him out if you haven’t already.” Client from Atlanta, GA- Scott Hinchmen

“Had the pleasure of meeting and fishing with Capt Owen Plair this past spring with my buddy Brian. What an awesome day on the Broad river. Owen is young and full of energy, but mature beyond his years. He put us on reds in the flats and my favorite topwater trout. One trout I will never forget was almost 6lbs. Great guide, awesome location can’t go wrong” Client from Charleston, SC- Marin Toporek

“Been fishing with Owen for a few years now. Always an amazing time, very accommodating to all skill levels and extremely knowledgable. No trip to the low country is complete without a guided trip with Owen!”  Client- Tyler Rutherford

“I highly recommend Capt. Owen Plair in Beaufort, SC. Tons of fish, not many boats, beautiful marshes, and a guide who will pole to the horizon and back! Excellent equipment and instruction as well. Can’t wait to get back to the quiet corner of the Lowcountry!”   Writer/Professor/Client- Michael Steinberg

“Owen is responsible for showing me my first career Redfish on a fly. I’ve been out with Owen on a countless number of occasions and everytime, I have a day to remember.”– Orvis Endorsed Guide of the year 2014 Johnson City, Tenessee Patrick Fulkrod 

“Owen was the kind of guide you want badly in a situation like this. He grew up fishing the area and was some kind of savant, owning his first boat at 8 years old. He knew this water as well as it can be known. Additionally, he was a great guy and fun to be around, which was a real plus given the long periods of poling that needed to be done. He worked hard to keep us on fish and succeeded sporadically.”

“Thanks Owen! That was definitely the best guided trip I have taken, and I’ll definitely be back in touch next time I’m in Beaufort. I’m still smiling about the fish you put me on.”

 “Thanks for an outstanding evening in the Low Country, and, once again, guiding me to numerous opportunities at tailing fish. Next time I will be better prepared to provide more hook ups. It is possible we will be back again for Thanksgiving, but if not, then a cobia trip for sure in the late spring. I absolutely can’t wait to be back.”

“Had the pleasure of getting on the bow of Owen’s Maverick HPX-S this past November. First of all, what an incredible fishery in Beaufort – I was impressed by the populations of redfish, the incredible schools, and sight fishing opportunities they presented. Owen is very knowledgable, and very hard working guide. We had tough visibility on the day we were out, and he continually moved us, and located fish, resulting in multiple hook ups and fish to the boat. Thank you Owen, and can’t wait to get back up to do it again.” Client from Florida- Jon Roberson

“I fished with Capt. Owen Plair this past Fall and he guided me to an epic couple of days of tailing redfish in the flood tide grass. This dude definitely guides these waters and guides them well… Capt. Owen is at the top of my list for any guide you are looking to book in Beaufort.” Captain Honson Lau from Miami, FL

“Captain Owen is by far the most passionate and talented guide I ever had the pleasure of working with.  In my line of work, writing and photography, there are no guarantees the fish will cooperate when out on assignment, but somehow Owen always manages to make things happen.  When the fishing gets tough is when he is at his best!”

“Thank you very much Tony and Owen for a most wonderful fishing trip. Fly fishing for reds was a fantastic experience that I will make sure I return to your guide service to enjoy. Owen was a fantastic guide and was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He was very patient and worked tirelessly to try and hook me up today to as many fish as possible. Being my first time out for reds, I didn’t know exactly what to do or expect, but Owen helped me catch up quickly. Next time I will be more prepared and experienced to hopefully catch more fish! Thank you again and it was a great day”

Client – Isacc Gowin

“Hi Owen,Thanks for the photos and for two great days on the Broad River. I plan to return the week of June 10 and would like to schedule two more days or half days to concentrate on fly fishing. Should I schedule through you or should I call BSO to set it up? Would you mind checking the tides for that week and picking two days that you think would be best in relation to the tides?I hope you have some enjoyable days on the water between now and then.”

Client from Atlanta, GA- Robin Bostick”

“You sound like a guy with a view, and appreciation of his own life that many people take decades to discover. That, in my experience, is rare in someone as young as you are. I hope to someday throw some feathers at some spot tails from the foredeck of your skiff. I’ll wager the conversation will be every bit as good as the fishing!”

Craig Masterman

“It was great to spend Saturday morning with you. We’ll definitely look you up the next time either of us are in the area.”

Client from Cleveland, OH- Chris Eckley

“It was really nice talking to you at the shop this past weekend. I appreciate all of the information you shared with me about tailing reds, tides, cobia, and other stuff. The tides/flats were always confusing to me – but you shed some light on it. I think the one of the closest things to fishing is talking with someone who is passionate about the sport with good stories – which definitely describes you. You will surely make a big impact on the sport and a lot of peoples’ lives in the process. Keep up the good work man.”

Brandon Jozwiak

“Thanks Owen for following up! I’ll show these to him a-sap and i’m pretty sure he was going to post some on facebook and he will probably tag you if that’s ok. He’s already talking about trying to get a trip going in October. And cobia season down there would be pretty much a dream. By the way…nice cobia pics!”

Client from Nashville,  TN- Jade Barry

“Thanks for an awesome fishing trip today, Owen. We had a blast!”
