Captain Paul Ray will be the lead guide on your adventure in fly fishing the Everglades. Paul is a world-class professional fishing guide, trained in a variety of global fisheries. When he is not guiding in the salt water environments of Florida, he spends other seasons fishing trout rivers in Colorado and fishing for salmon in Iceland. Paul has devoted his life to this, his home fishery, and looks forward to proving it to you. He is a passionate angler and great teacher; he is aggressive in the pursuit of finding you the best opportunities to feed a fish of a lifetime. Paul is very passionate about the robust fishery of his home turf and preserving it for many years to come. Our company prioritizes conservation, and we practice catch and release fishing to keep the trophies for the future!
Paul is very personable and loves meeting people. He can customize a trip to fit your needs all the while giving you an “authentic” fishing experience! I am lucky enough to be sponsored by many great companies including Chittum Skiffs, G-Loomis, and Nautilus. I run an 18 foot state of the art 100% carbon fiber skiff– this is one of a kind and you’ve just got to hop on and see for yourself! I am using the Hal Chittum trademarked “Spider Cage”, a cage that gives the angler stability on the casting platform and allows them to sit or lean on the platform securely, with its own built-in fly line management system. This is a real game changer for keeping my anglers fresh throughout the day and saves us the the hassle of untangling line. Maintaining my gear and using top of the line products is a priority for me.
If you are looking for a customer service driven Naples fly fishing guide and Everglades fishing guide look no further, I am a highly passionate, driven and professional guide.
