Great grab in the dark!!

With over 30 years of guiding Southern California’s local inshore waters and as one of the first “saltwater fly fishing-specific” guides in Southern California, Capt. Bill is way ahead of the curve. His clients come back time and time again because of his detailed preparation, gracious service and a drive to provide the best fishing opportunities.

Bill grew up fishing the White Mountains in Northern Arizona chasing wild trout and many years later was introduced to the world of saltwater through fishing Redondo Harbor for Bonito. It was a true fish addiction! He has pursued saltwater species on both Coast of the US, Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica, Bahamas, Belize, Venezuela, Brazil, Christmas Island in the South Pacific as well as Alaska & Canada. His addiction to Tarpon keeps him in Key West each May searching for the “one”!

He spends time listening to and learning from other guides and fishermen, as well as many of the legends in our sport and is constantly elevating his game. He is extremely passionate about the pursuit of all fish on the fly.
