My name is Colin Murphy of True Fly Expeditions and I am a fishing guide in Biscayne Bay.

Biscayne bay is a host to a wide variety of game fish and offer some of the most productive flats fishing opportunities in North America. These flats provide an ideal habitat for Tarpon, Permit, Bonefish, Snook, Redfish, Barracuda and several species of sharks.

Anglers of all experience levels are more then welcome. Weather you want to use fly fishing gear or a spinning rod.

I currently operate a 17 Maverick HPX Carbon that can accommodate 2 adults or one adult and two kids.

All of my fly rods and reels and made by Hardy. I am a strong believer in using the best quality equipment while pursing what could be the fish of a lifetime. I am always available to entertain questions and look forward to fishing with you soon.

Fly fishing has always been a big part of my families life. I started my carrier guiding in the Mid West and then as a captain on private sport fishing operations. I spent 10 years guiding clients for some of the most sought after game fish and pursing world records in the Caribbean, Bahamas, Panama, Costa Rica, and Mexico. For the past 5 years I have been staying close to home and putting my clients on quality fish in the Bahamas and right here in South Florida.
