Captain Lynn Smith is a fishing guide and fly-casting instructor who hails from the town of Charlestown, Rhode Island. Considered by many to be a rising star in the saltwater fly fishing industry, Lynn has been featured in the Newport Daily News, as well as appearing on the covers of Nor' east Saltwater and Rhode Island Fishing magazine. She also appeared on the television show "One More Cast" with Shaw Grigsby and was featured in an article "Women in Fishing" in The Fisherman Magazine. Lynn is also a Pro Staff member of Triton Boats and St Croix Rods.



Lynn and her husband Kelly co-own and operate the Lil' Devil II guide service – a 24-foot Triton center console focusing on inshore game fish using light spinning, and conventional gear and fly tackle -- and the C -Devil II Sportfishing charters – a 32-foot Topaz Sportfisherman specializing in both inshore and offshore sport fishing. The C-Devil II is where Lynn first began her career in the recreational fishing industry serving as first mate. Lynn and Kelly have been in the charter business together since 1993.




In 1999 Lynn earned her US Coast Guard captain's license and has never looked back. When not guiding clients, Lynn remains active by instructing fly-casting classes and speaking at seminars for regional fishing shows and outdoor events. Lynn is proud to be considered a catalyst for other aspiring women in the world of recreational fishing, and also enjoys instructing men and children of all ages and skill levels.
