’I grew up in England. At a young age my father taught me how to fly fish in the reservoirs in the midlands. Targeting trout during the spring and summer months and educating me on salmon on the Scottish borders, he taught me a priceless bug that is so addictive it will never leave me.
I first fished Charlotte Harbor aged 17 and I fell in love the moment I hit the water. Since my first voyage I returned every year I could. My passion is to fish for snook, redfish, trout and of course the silver king. Charlotte Harbor and the Peace River have a multitude of options to discover and find the most elusive of fish if you fish the right places, the options are endless and the mosquito conquers all boundaries. Charlotte Harbor is now my home.
I’ve ran a number of boats over the years from large bay boats to skiffs but the mosquito is incredibly unique and diverse. If you do not want to spend all day throwing flies or lures, I often catch live bait for clients making sure your day will be fulfilled with memories. Book now.

We've developed a program with our Pro Team Captains where you can spend a ½ day fishing with one of our guides and experience our skiffs first-hand. If you choose to purchase a Beavertail, we'll credit you the full cost of your charter when ordering!
