Captain Raymond has been fly fishing for over 25 years. He was born and raised here, a local to the area, so he knows the waters very well. He is a part of the flyfishing team trying to join the national team of SAR and compete in world competitions. He has a number of co-guides who can join him and take more than 2 customers who are also a part of the team. He is a big fan of flyfishing for Yellowfish since it's an indigenous species in SAR and very unique. Fishing for it is very unique as well and no one should miss this if they come to SAR. He and his team will make sure you have the time of your life while putting your fly fishing skills to the test!
