If you want to get your blood flowing, and excitement going at its highest level, then come fishing with Fly Water Expeditions. If you would enjoy watching a 100+ pound fish swim in shallow water, track your fly, eat it, then try to take every yard of fly line and backing off your fly reel, we are the guide service for you!
Beginning as early as April and staying steady all the way through the first few weeks of August, tarpon migrate up Florida’s coast and Fly Water Expeditions will be there to get in their path. We sight fish for migrating tarpon on the beaches, as well as search for these monsters laid up and rolling in the pristine back countries of the west coast of Florida.
August to December offer incredible opportunities for bonefish, permit, redfish, and black drum in the backcountry and Everglades National Park. Sight casting to these species in crystal clear water is an angler's dream.
The Florida Keys offer some of the best fly fishing opportunities for tarpon in the entire world. Fishing in gin clear water anywhere from 2-4 ft in depth, these monster POONS migrate through the area and crush flies on a regular basis. Let us get you hooked on the best saltwater game fish Florida has to offer. Fly Water Expeditions would love to have you on the bow of our boat pulling on one of these “silver kings!”
Exact meeting location will be provided after booking.

I was born in Orlando, Florida and began fishing at a very young age. I graduated to the saltwater environment at the age of 10, when our family bought a condo on the east coast of Florida. I mastered my home waters of Mosquito Lagoon while in high school and made trips every other weekend to the west coast of Florida to fish the Charlotte Harbor area. I was fortunate enough to play sports as a young man and received a scholarship to play division one baseball at the University of Miami. This is where my addiction began as I got hooked on the three biggest saltwater flats species (Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit). Going to class was extremely hard when you live in an area that has incredible fishing opportunities, as South Florida did.
After my sophomore year at UM, I transferred to play baseball at Tulane University which is located in Uptown, New Orleans. I didn’t realize how good of a fishery that I had moved into and was out on the water in no time, learning the area that is considered to be the best red fishery in the world. Putting in thousands of hours on the marsh and polling around in technical skiffs has made me realize how incredible and resourceful the Louisiana marsh really is.
Whether you are interested in marsh fishing in Louisiana or searching for the silver kings on the coast of Florida, I invite you to come share in my addiction..
As a former customer of guides all over the world, I know how it can be to get yelled at and put in your place when you don’t make the perfect cast, or can’t see the fish right away. For this reason, I will never put my anglers down when they are on the bow of my boat. I strive to make my trips as enjoyable and comfortable for my clients, with trips consisting of instruction, encouragement, and tons of laughter. Creating friendships and memorable experiences is my vision for Fly Water Expeditions and I can’t wait to hear from you.
