Company: Spotted Tail Fishing Charters
Area Reporting: East Central Florida
Bio: Fishing is in my blood. Blame it on my father. I've been tying flies since I was a child and have caught fish in 14 states and 10 countries. My life list on fly currently contains 59 species, and I continue to work on it. I specialize in sight fishing with fly and light tackle for any fish that will take a bait, lure, or fly. I teach fishing classes at Brevard Community College, and am the instructor at the Andy Thornall Fly Fishing for Redfish School. The FFF has certified me as a Fly Casting Instructor. I am proud to be a member of the Coastal Conservation Association, the Federation of Fly Fishers, the Indian River Guides Association, the Florida Outdoor Writers Association, and the Southeastern Outdoor Press Association. I have been a three term president of the Indian River Guides Association, a two term president of the Backcountry Fly Fishing Association, and a two term vice president of the Florida Outdoor Writers Association. I organize an annual fishing day for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Florida. I have been selected as a Top Rated Guide. Nine boats of various types call my yard home. I am always ready to talk fishing and can be reached via my website, www.spottedtail.com.
