  • Hey Rich,

    I just wanted to say thanks for the great fishing experience in the Florida Everglades. Kevin and I were blown away with how wild it is being so close to Miami. Kevin is still talking about his Tarpon….

    Thanks again,

  • Captain Rich,

    Thanks for another great trip. I wish the wind wasn’t blowing so hard so the fly fishing would have been easier to see them. But hey that’s fishing. But at least we were still able to get on them with the spin rods. I have a buddy from my fishing club that wants to come down and fish with you. I pass your info over to him. Well thanks again and I can’t wait to see the video we took.

    Thanks again Rich and take care!
