Paul Is a Fly Fishing machine but not a stranger to the spinning game. We had a trip booked in early December and Paul did not disappoint. heading deep into the backcountry we caught over 20 snook on the fly and 2 baby tarpon…what a great fishery!

Paul is as passionate as they come about fishing and the everglades in general, a family man with two children, Paul not only is a great, heard working guide he is a great man to spend the day on the skiff having conversation with. I have fished with him in Boca Grande and The everglades and always look forward to our adventures!

Captain Paul is top notch. We did a beach and backcountry charter with him in June and the fishing was absolutely spectacular. He is a very friendly guide which is rare and we have been coming to Naples for many years. If you are in the area, you must experience The Everglades with Captain Paul.

I took my 2 sons out with Captain Paul on his Paddle board excursions. What an awesome time paddle boarding on the flat and sight fishing redfish. My sons had a blast and we will certainly be back.

– Tim, Miami FL

I have fished with Paul many days every year and what a hard working guide that is always working hard to find the fish and to give me the best experience possible. Paul is the best guide I have fished with in all my years of throwing flies!

My wife and I went out with Captain Paul at sunrise. Not only did we catch a TON of fish, but we saw some incredible scenery and had a great morning on the water. We plan on coming back next year and calling Captain Paul to see what else there is to see around these barrier islands.

Captain Paul knows the waters of Boca Grande like the back of his hand. It was refreshing to fish with a guide who knew so many “hot” spots we could try in one morning. Needless to say our trip was very successful! Not only did we have a great time but we caught a trophy Snook.

I learned a lot in my afternoon in the backcountry with Captain Paul. Baby tarpon on the fly is a BLAST!! A little-known adventure in Naples. I appreciated the casting tips too, and my casting is improved since implementing them. Thanks Paul !!

-Matt, Boulder CO

Captain Paul was so accommodating and adventurous. Couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. We booked one day, but while we were out on the boat Paul suggested taking the kayaks out the following morning for a different experience. Monster reds pulled us all around the next day while we watched the sun come up. Awesome!! We definitely recommend kayak fishing in Boca.

-Buck and Kevin, Chicago IL

Paul took us out from Colorado for a fly fishing tour of his area, I have been fly fishing all over the world and fly fishing in Naples and Ten-Thousand islands really opened my eyes into an incredible sight casting fishery. If you need a hard working fly fishing guide in the area, Paul Ray is your guy
