Welcome

logoFlats fishing the gin clear waters of the Florida Keys offers some of the most diverse inshore fishing opportunities on the planet.  From weary tailing permit and bonefish on the flats, to mega schools of migrating tarpon, to backcountry redfish and snook, the Florida Keys has something for everyone.  Come experience shallow water sport fishing at it’s finest.

I am located in the heart of the Florida Keys in Marathon.  Marathon is a great fit for me because it is centrally located for me to fish all over the Keys.  It’s location opens up more fishing opportunities in the ever changing weather conditions down here.  From Everglades National Park to the Marquesas, I like to fish all of it.  Options are always a good thing to have here in the islands.

I specialize in fly fishing and light tackle sight fishing here in the Keys. Sight fishing is extremely challenging, and can be extremely rewarding.  We sight fish here for just about everything.  From tarpon, bonefish and permit, to sharks and barracudas. The clear water here in the Keys makes it a great place for sight casting with a fly rod or a spinning outfit.  Custom trips are available.  Let me plan your dream fishing vacation for you and the species you wish to target.
