Islamorada, Florida 33036

For over 20 years I have been an Islamorada fishing guide specializing in light spin tackle and fly fishing on the waters surrounding Islamorada and its neighboring islands in the beautiful Florida Keys.
For years this area has been the “go to” destination for the serious saltwater angler. More world record saltwater fish have been caught here than any other place in the world. New records are being set by fly fishing anglers in the Islamorada area to this day.
Still, nothing is more rewarding to me than seeing new and upcoming anglers test their saltwater fishing skills against our local saltwater game fish. All you need to bring is the desire to fish and something to drink! Everything else is supplied.
Whether you’re a novice or world class angler and fly fishing expert, there is no better place to learn or hone your saltwater fishing skills than here in the pristine waters off Islamorada in our Fabulous Florida Keys. Come join me on a fishing adventure in the beautiful backcountry waters of Islamorada and the surrounding Florida Keys.
