If you want to learn fly casting and have some FUN, here are ways to join us for a great fishing adventure

I established the Boca Grande Fly Fishing School in 1989 in Sarasota, Florida.

As an angler with over fifty years experience in numerous fly fishing venues and a Federation of Flyfishers Master Casting Instructor, I am able to help fly fishers in every type of angling.

 I offer group novice and intermediate classes on a monthly schedule, individual instructions and on-water classes for advanced anglers.  All classes are designed with your fly fishing goals in mind. 

Whether you are seeking to begin a new adventure in fishing, prepping for the trip of a lifetime or just want to hone your skills, I will be able to take you to the level you need to catch more fish.

MY  PROGRAMS

On-The-Water Class for Novice Fly-fishers

(This half day class is taken aboard “The Gypsy”, Capt. Pete’s Maverick flats skiff.  Water/soft drinks, tackle, license and flies are included)

This class is for spin fishers and bait casters that want a new dimension in their angling experience. The class takes place on the water in true fishing conditions. I cover basic casting, fly selection, knots and leaders and explain all the equipment needed for fishing. You will be in the pristine waters of Charlotte Harbor and will actually catch fish while learning to cast

Private Instruction

I am available for private instructions for groups and individuals upon request.

Each class is designed around a specific goal of the students.  Anglers getting ready for a trip or wanting to learn a new technique should opt for this class.


Class takes place aboard “The Gypsy”, Capt. Pete’s flats skiff.  All tackle, license,  soft drinks/water and flies included.

The fastest way to learn to fly fish is one on one with your instructor. Anglers on the fast-track can gather all the knowledge and experience they can absorb in a day on the water with me
You bring a thirst for knowledge and I'll provide the rest. We'll cover all aspects of fly-casting and fly-fishing including advanced techniques and tactics, the double haul, curve casting, back casting, presentation and more. This is not just for saltwater anglers, but for trout, salmon and bass fishermen also.
