Flats fishing in the Florida Keys and Everglades! Specializing in fly fishing, we can do spin as well if you prefer.....You will be fishing out of a Hells Bay Boatworks skiff and we will tailor your trip around the species of fish you desire to target....Certain times of the year OR weather may dictate a certain launch point but in general we will be fishing the upper Florida Keys, Biscayne Bay or Flamingo in Everglades National Park....While I take two anglers maximum on my skiff , I feel totally comfortable with beginners as well as the most seasoned angler....It will be a fun and exciting experience!!
Exact meeting location will be provided after booking.

Originally from Virginia, I started fishing and hunting at a very early age. Mom was from a big family of Tobacco/Cotton farmers in North Carolina , Dad was from Maryland and along with my grandfather and great uncles who were Waterman on the Chesapeake Bay, there were ALWAYS opportunities too fish or hunt...So began the addiction of fishing , hunting and guns!
I've been a skiff guide in the Florida Keys for almost 20 years now....While I enjoy all types of fishing and guiding my clients too some of the strongest , toughest and smartest fish that swim on any tackle, MY favorite is big Tarpon on fly.....Not easy and requires some effort on the guide AND anglers part but he rewards are high! On my days off I'm fishing! In the Keys or Bass fishing up in the Glades or Okeechobee.....I also guide in the fly tarpon tournaments and have fished many bass tournaments in the past...I think tournament fishing , as a guide , makes you realize that no matter the conditions (seems like tournaments are during the worst weather) Somebody is catching them! So it makes you work harder too find fish for your clients....
