Why Folks Are Lining Up
to Try Fly Fishing with Us?
Fly fishing is more than just a fishing method; it's an immersive experience that combines the thrill of the catch with the serenity of nature. It's a sport that challenges you physically and mentally, yet rewards you with a sense of tranquility and accomplishment. Whether you're a seasoned angler or a beginner, here are some reasons why you should consider joining the growing community of fly fishers:
- Active Engagement: Unlike traditional fishing, fly fishing keeps you on your toes. You'll be waist-deep in water, navigating through currents, and casting simultaneously. It's not just a fishing trip; it's a full-body workout.
- The Challenge: Fly fishing requires a higher level of skill and knowledge. From mastering different casting techniques to understanding local wildlife and adapting to your surroundings, it's a puzzle that keeps evolving. It's not just about catching fish; it's about outsmarting them.
- Exploration and Connection with Nature: Fly fishing takes you to places you've never been before. It's not just about the catch; it's about the journey, the landscapes, the wildlife, and the connection with nature.
- Affordable Hobby: Fly fishing doesn't have to break the bank. As a beginner, all you need is a fly rod and reel, fly line, leader, and a basic selection of flies. As you gain more experience, you can invest in higher-quality tools.
Remember, fly fishing is not just a sport; it's an experience. It's about the thrill of the catch, the connection with nature, and the continuous learning and improvement. It's a journey that starts with a single cast.

Fishing with Captain Shawn Walker
We were part of a fishing weekend event called Nuts and Bolts of fishing with Cefus McRae. Our first day of our outing in Crystal River in Florida was with Captain Shawn Walker. Shawn was so knowledgeable about the hiding places of red fish, snook, and sea trout. He taught us throughout the day about the tides, rivers life, manatees etc. He celebrated right along with us as we caught fish after fish. He even took pictures with us and for us. What a kind, accomplished Captain. We felt safe and trusted that we would come back with fish. And we did! He is a family man who we will surely look up on our next trip to Crystal River. Thank you Shawn for wonderful memory filled weekend.
Took my nephew/employee fishing while in Florida on business. Had a fine time with Capt Shawn. He is patient, knowledgeable in many areas and not just fishing. He is personable, and puts up with us northerners, and he is a down right good guy! I will contact him again next time I am in the area. You can't go wrong with Shawn!!!
Had an amazing day of scalloping and fishing with Captain Shawn! He took our group of four to a few different spots to scallop. We all had a great time scalloping and then we spent the second part of the day fishing. We caught Spanish mackerel, trout, mangrove snapper and more! Awesome day on the water! Captain Shawn took us to all the great spots and was very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend using this company. We will be booking again!
