Simple Planing

My schedule is constantly changing and I'm a one man business so I don't have the time to keep an online calendar with a booking form up to date. Please contact me with the dates you want; preferably via email or text as I'm usually on the water and unable to return your call during daylight hours.

I'll do my best to get back to you within twenty fours hours to answer any questions or to schedule your trip.


My Specialties Include

  • Over twenty-seven years of guiding full time in the Florida keys and Everglades
  • South Florida and Florida Keys native
  • Sight Fishing and poling my skiffs
  • Fly fishing and light tackle
