Fly Fishing Is My Passion
Fishing the pristine waters of Boca Grande, Charlotte Harbor and the backcountry is a new thrill everyday. Each day is different as are the different species of fish we encounter. Bring your own equipment or use mine. I will tie your flies for the days fishing, make your leaders and provide an Action-Craft 1720 skift to fish from. I try to ensure your trip is above-all FUN and gratifying, showing you all the tricks of the trade to have a productive day.
