Background
I love my anglers. I treat them, and the other fishermen I share the water with, the way I would like to be treated. Being human I sometimes err. If I upset you please let me know. I will apologize and do my best to make it right. I started guiding part-time in 1988, and since January of 1996 have been making a living by fishing, writing about fishing, selling photographs of fishing, and giving classes and seminars about fishing.
Techniques
Fly fishing or light tackle for Redfish, Seatrout, Snook, Tarpon, Black Drum, Cobia, King Mackerel, sharks, and many other species. River fishing for Bass, Bream, or American shad.
