Testimonial:

Dunc`s first Bonefish run…From Beginner to Bonefish.
“I began Fly fishing with Pete a few years ago.  I had screen-shot-2016-12-18-at-19-33-52never been fishing before, and everything was new to me. Pete taught me how to cast a fly rod for Stillwater Trout, and it wasn’t long before I caught my first trout with him.

I have been fishing with Pete many times since then and I`ve learned a lot and caught some great fish with him. In 2014 we went to Andros Island and fished with Glister Wallace, I caught my first bonefish with a fly rod and had an amazing time.”
