Fly Fishing Marco Island

My Story...

My family and I moved to Marco Island from Cape Cod, MA in 2001, when I was four years old. I grew up on the island going to school, playing sports, and spending my free time on the boat with family and friends. Eventually, through the influences of Jose Wejebe and Flip Pallot, I saved up my allowance and bought my first fly combo at the age of seven. I spent hours upon hours in my front yard teaching myself how to throw a fly rod. Before heading to Massachusetts that Spring, I caught my first fish on fly; a sight-fished beach Snook. Since then, I’ve had the bug BAD. I’m currently guiding part-time and conducting local research as I complete my Marine Science Degree and minor in Biology at Florida Gulf Coast University (Class of 2020).
