About Gary Dubiel

Spec Fever Guide Service inshore fishing charters is a light tackle and fly fishing guide service running fishing trips year round from New Bern, Oriental & Beaufort.  Join Captain Gary Dubiel for an exciting day on the water.

Capt. Gary's passion for fishing brought him to North Carolina in the late 1980's. Starting "Spec Fever" because of his love of speckled seatrout fishing.  Moving from the Outer Banks to the Neuse River, Gary adding redfish, stripers, false albacore and so many other species to the Spec Fever hit list. 

Always looking to improve his techniques, Gary pioneered the popping cork craze for NC giant red drum, turning what was a night time bait fishery into a day time artificial lure fishery.  Progressing that one step further, Gary invented the Pop-N-Fly rig and revolutionized fly fishing for these giant reds. 

Capt. Gary has written and lectured on both light tackle and fly fishing and he has appeared on a number of angling shows on ESPN 2, WFN, UNC-TV, NBC Sports, the Sportsman Channel and Discovery Channel (Europe).  He is a frequent speaker at local and national fishing shows including the Saltwater Sportsman's National Seminar Series, the Fly Fishing Show and the Virginia Fly Fishing Festival.  He has also been featured in many major sports fishing magazines and in several books.
