Fort Myers Testimonial

John, just a quick note to thank you for a fantastic day on the fly yesturday the two Snook were good, but the big one some how escaped capture due to some particually dodgy morning casting but at least i soon got to grips with it, i still cannot belive how different a method it is to fishing for trout back at home! but the Big Red well i’m still buzzing over it now wow that was fun i only wish we could have had more time but c’est la vie! When i get home i’m going to advertise your company in our regimental magazine as a lot of the regiment holiday in florida and many of the guys fish. As for me well you’ve given me some fantastic memories and storys, if you are ever in the UK then look me up and i’ll take you fly fishing in the mecca of south wales for wild brownies or, for some big Rainbows. At the very least bring your fanily over and i’ll take you out for a night at the Warrant Officers and Sergeants mess, at the first Battalion of The Rifles, a club where membership is extremely exclusive, and invites seldom given.

Thanks once again

Tight Lines and i’m sure i’ll see you next year after my next excursion to Afgan!

Everglades Fishing: April 2009

This month is coming to a close and the winds have started to roar in but not with out some great days on the water.  Pete Lunati started out this month with a couple of days hooking the big snook the first day of about 15 lbs and losing her in the woods. The second day was full of action with 4 nice snook being caught with some trout  and some beautiful weather.

Dr. Peter Millett took off from his practice in Val Colorado helping mend A Rods hip to spend a few days fly fishing the everglades.   The first day was spent chasing snook and we really did well with 15 snook on fly with the largest being 32″ and 28″.  The next day was spent looking for tarpon and we found a few and jumped two. The biggest one gave us 8 jumps and some screaming runs and a parted line in the 80LB shock tippet after about 20 minutes.

We enjoyed three great days of tarpon hunting with a young guide named John Stark south of Chokoloskee in May. We had a pretty good conversation about the advantages of Orvis endorsement as we pushed around the 10,000 Islands (all of them, it seemed.)

He fishes out of nearly-new Hells Bay Skiff, knows the 10,000 Island like he knows his child’s face. His back yard includes the waters around Naples and Marco, so he has the Gulf side of South Florida pretty well covered (Pete Villanni’s old stomping grounds). He has a fisheries biology degree from Wake Forest , where he played soccer on a scholarship. After trying to make it professionally in the European football world, he returned to his fishing roots to chase snook, redfish, and tarps. He is trilingual English, Spanish, and Flyfishing. He’s also fully prepared to fish conventionally on windy days and with the flyfishing impaired.

On our trips he was unfailingly on time, in a good humor, and he always let the day burn away well past the appointed time to return to the dock. He didn’t seem to care about the clock.

We are planning on returning to fish with him again next spring and my fishing partner on the trip (the president of Boaters World and Ritz Camera) has already booked Stark for a day in September as an escape from a required wedding appearance.
