I had a great day on the water with Capt Richard. I especially appreciated his willingness and experience to teach me as it was my first time saltwater fly fishing.
Jon H. with Richard M. of Gulf Breeze, Florida
A group of 6 went with Zach into the Gulf. We had a great time catching snapper. There was some weather that morning and Zach was very proactive in arranging a slight departure delay to let the weather pass. Zach was dedicated to keeping us on fish.
