John's Bio


For sure it’s a blessing to be able to say that I am a fifth generation Floridian. Around the mid to late 1800's my family settled along the shores of the Mosquito Lagoon at New Smyrna Beach and the Indian River at Sand Point (now Titusville). They fished, hunted, guided, built boats, farmed and raised babies.

All that aside, my passion is fly fishing and trying to fool fish with the flies that I tie myself. We'll quietly pole over the shallow flats and sight-cast to unsuspecting fish in hopes of a nibble. Along the way you'll no doubt see why I love this fabulous stretch of Florida's waterway I call home.

I do practice catch and release here on the lagoon. It's just the right thing to do for this particular fishery, so thanks for that

Inquiries always welcome on more information about ‘seasonal’ guided flyfishing in southwest Alaska for all five species of Pacific salmon and trophy rainbow trout.
