 Welcome to First Coast Fly Fishing Unlimited    

As an avid fly fisherman and educator for over 25 years my passion for this sport has driven me to create this website to offer some unique services to you and share my  outdoor adventures, photos and video’s for your  viewing  pleasure.

My fishing style mostly uses Fly tackle with the option of light spin tackle. I specializes in sight fishing for Redfish around the low tide periods when conditions and time of day fished allows. We also do lots of blind casting around structure and holes when the water levels are higher. I generally will travel and cover several different areas to find fish and for you to see our natural beauty. It’s all inshore fishing the saltwater tidal marshes which include a maze of  creeks,  shallow water flats and wildlife. There’s also high tide (summer-fall) flooded grass flats fishing for tailing Reds around the new and full moon periods. I support Catch & Release fish but you are also welcome to keep your catches. No fish cleaning is offered. I enjoy sharing my complete fishing knowledge with you and specialize with helping beginners.

Over the past 10 years I have fished and explored these Jacksonville-St.Augustine home waters with over 900 trips including well over 5,000 hours on the water & 25 years overall experience. This includes fishing  75 miles of  the saltwater tidal marshes from Amelia Island to Palm Coast.

I take great pleasure and pride in photographing it all. “My Photos” page will tour you through the beauty of what’s there for you to see and give you a good taste of my inshore adventures.

If you are visiting the areas of Amelia Island, Talbot Islands, Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra, Vilano Beach and St. Augustine come see, learn, and join me for your  back to nature and fly or light tackle fishing opportunities in our pristine waterways and wilderness.

I am a part time guide and trips are generally available on weekends, holidays and week day late afternoons depending on season. Please call for other arrangements. Thank you for your interest.

It’s also geared to help educate you with local fishing  info.,  fly fishing articles, fishing and fly tying video’s,  fly casting tips and  instruction, Kayak rigging, helpful links and more.

 16’ Mitzi Flats Skiff Video

3 passenger boat(incl. guide) is designed for shallow water. It is a very light and fast boat that drafts approx. 8” and can get in the skinniest water. It has a 70” beam and rides high on top of the water and is very dry. Note: This boat may seem tipsy for persons with poor balance.
