Capt. Bob Paccia - the lower Cape's premier light tackle and fly fishing guide

Your Captain:

Capt. Bob with Blue fin tuna caught on a 9 wt outfit Here’s Capt. Bob holding the fly rod along with  Capt. Ned Kittredge who is supporting a #45 bluefin tuna that Capt. Bob just landed after a 45 minute battle, using one of his 12 inch herring fly patterns and a 10 weight fly rod. The tuna was quickly tagged and released. This took place on Capt. Al Anderson’s boat, “The Prowler” out of Snug Harbor, RI. Capt. Al is a famous tuna Charter Captain, (after-all , he wrote the book on “Bluefin Tuna”).  His tagging and releasing tuna program has helped a great deal in improving tuna management.

Capt. Bob Paccia has been fishing the waters throughout Cape Cod for  over 60 years. He is a well known successful surf-caster from Province Town to the Cape Cod Canal. He guided clients on the canal for years during the “glory-days” of live-lining alewives and herring for huge stripers and bluefish. That was back in the days when anglers used to float laundry-sized baskets, filled with live herring, up or down the canal until they reached their favorite fishing spots.

 Although Capt. Bob enjoyed all styles of fishing, his true love is saltwater fly fishing, especially when using very large flies (8-16 inches long) . Many articles have referred to him as “One of the early pioneers in saltwater fly-fishing on the Cape”.

Capt. Bob has been a U.S. Coast Guard licensed Charter Boat Captain for over 15 years and a Shore-Guide for more than 45 years.
