More world records on fly than any other guide alive today

Captain Al grew up on Tampa Bay catching every species of fish he could as a kid. From that point forward, he knew he wanted to spend all his time on the water. Al has been guiding for over 40 years, and when he’s not guiding his clients to world record fish he is commercial fishing, constantly spending his time on the water as a commercial fisherman.

Al has guided his clients to more world records on fly than any other guide alive today. His clients still hold multiple records on fly, one of those being the most respected fly record of all time, a 190.9lb tarpon caught on 16lb test tippet May 13,2003 by Tom Evans, who was just recently induced into the IGFA hall of fame.

He has broken 7 world records, 3 of which are still standing today. Captain Al’s experience on the water is undoubtedly one of the best you can witness, proficient with beginners just learning how to cast, or even hall of fame fisherman.

Al has also won many of our local tournaments for snook, redfish and trout, making him one of the most respected fishing guides in this area for all species of fish.

Even after all he has done from winning tournaments to breaking world records, captain Al still strives to be the best for his clients every day.
