About The Captain
A Little About the Captain
I am a fishing guide in Northeast Florida. Born in Pensacola, FL and a third-generation Floridian, I was introduced to the great outdoors at an early age. I grew up fishing local ponds and the famous Pensacola Pier.
My father served in the Navy which gave me the incredible opportunity to fish in numerous destinations around the world including Florida, Cuba, Bahamas, Tennessee, Maryland, and Maine. After my father retired, I set roots in Jacksonville, Fl where I attended the University of North Florida.
I committed my life to fishing including working at the local fly shop, Blackfly Outfitter.The past 14 years I have been learning the amazing fishery that Northeast Florida has to offer. Even though I enjoy all aspects of fishing, what excites me the most is actively sight fishing in very shallow water which sometimes feels more like hunting than fishing.
