At Fly Water Expeditions we strive to give you the best fly and light tackle fishing experience. Our guides are all USCG licensed, they all fish from top of the line technical poling skiffs and are well experienced in the coastal marshes of Louisiana. Our guides have all spent thousands of hours on the back of their skiffs perfecting the fishery and knowing where to find fish in all conditions. We all work hard for our anglers to give them the best opportunity to succeed out on the water. Along with having a great time, we strive to create long lasting friendships with everyone who steps foot on the bow of our boats.

I was born in Orlando, Florida and began fishing at a very young age. I graduated to the saltwater environment at the age of 10, when our family bought a condo on the east coast of Florida. I mastered my home waters of Mosquito Lagoon while in high school and made trips every other weekend to the west coast of Florida to fish the Charlotte Harbor area. I was fortunate enough to play sports as a young man and received a scholarship to play division one baseball at the University of Miami. This is where my addiction began as I got hooked on the three biggest saltwater flats species (Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit). Going to class was extremely hard when you live in an area that has incredible fishing opportunities, as South Florida did.
After my sophomore year at UM, I transferred to play baseball at Tulane University which is located in Uptown, New Orleans. I didn’t realize how good of a fishery that I had moved into and was out on the water in no time, learning the area that is considered to be the best red fishery in the world. Putting in thousands of hours on the marsh and polling around in technical skiffs has made me realize how incredible and resourceful the Louisiana marsh really is.
As a former customer of guides all over the world, I know how it can be to get yelled at and put in your place when you don’t make the perfect cast, or can’t see the fish right away. For this reason, I will never put my anglers down when they are on the bow of my boat. I strive to make my trips as enjoyable and comfortable for my clients, with trips consisting of instruction, encouragement, and tons of laughter. Creating friendships and memorable experiences is my vision for Fly Water Expeditions and I can’t wait to hear from you.
