Bio: As with most diehard fisherman I started at an early age. Growing up on the Indian Rocks Pier I learned quickly that the “Old-timers” were vast with knowledge. They took me under their wings and shared that much needed knowledge. In 1985 Hurricane Elena took away my favorite fishing pier and with it the informal educational sessions I so enjoyed. I moved to later work as a mate on a commercial fishing vessel. In my spare time I fished off piers and the flats.

Then I met an excellent local fisherman who introduced me to “Light Tackle Sport Fishing”. I learned the finer points of fly fishing and light tackle. Skinny Water Charters holds a IGFA World Records on a fly rod and light gear. I have made the backwater estuaries my second home.

Come experience the joys and excitement of “Skinny Water” fishing at it’s best!
