Background
Captain Blake got hooked on fishing with his dad as a young boy, and never looked back. With more than 30 years of experience behind him, he's become a real expert in the craft and is always willing to pass on the knowledge he's learned. Light tackle fishing in shallow waters is his specialty and favorite pastime, be it regular spinning or fly fishing.
Techniques
Shallow water sight casting for Snook, Redfish, Trout and Tarpon. Conventional Spinning or Fly Fishing.
