Josh Striper Tar

Bio:

Captain Josh Abrams has been guiding on the Kenai Peninsula for 9 years and his passion for fishing is obvious from the minute you meet him. After many years of guiding at Drifter's Lodge in Cooper Landing, Josh has taken his passion to the next level with the opening of Carolina Backcountry Guide Service in Tarboro, North Carolina. His roots are originally from Eastern North Carolina where he found his love for fishing on the Tar/Pamlico fishing for the dominate bass species Largemouth and Stripers. These days he can be found any where from the Kenai and Kasilof Rivers to the Tar and Roanoke. If its got fins and lives in water Josh is after it.
