Captain Peter Lawson-Johnston

Capt. Peter Lawson-Johnston is the owner and operator of Lowcountry Vibez LLC.

I started fly fishing with my father at the age of 8 and never looked back. Each summer was spent chasing striped bass, bonito, bluefish, and false albacore in the New England area. Over the years, I have traveled across the globe and developed a deep passion for bonefishing in the Caribbean, striper/albie fishing in New England, and tarpon fishing in the Florida Keys. After high school, I went to the College of Charleston in South Carolina where I was introduced to redfish. I took every chance I could to go explore the marshes of the lowcountry and learn as much as possible about sight fishing redfish on fly. 

After graduating college, I worked a short time in real estate before working at Badfish for two years. I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a professional fly fishing guide in 2017. I am a US Coast Guard licensed captain and fully insured.



Pete is a top notch guide. He knows the fishery inside and out and makes you feel confident on the bow.

Capt. Pete is an outstanding guide. He has introduced me into the sport of fly fishing and has been instrumental in developing my skills as a fly angler.

Pete knows the lowcountry waters as well as anyone. He will consistently put you on fish. Spent an epic afternoon with Capt. Pete in April and caught my first redfish on fly. I can’t wait to come back and fish with him again.
