Meet Your Captain
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 moved to New Orleans to pursue jazz (he is an accomplished saxophone and clarinet player) and has found the perfect day job and extension of his passion for fishing as a charter captain and casting instructor. His knowledge, enthusiasm and patience will make for a great day with all skill level of anglers. He is excited to get you out on the water and have some fun catching big fish!
