I fished with Capt. Paul on 8-29, when I use a guide it’s like going to school and Paul is great at teaching. He takes time to explain everything he was doing. I picked up valuable tips I can use back home in Charleston as well as trips to the keys. Everything from baits to reading currents, why fish are where they are, etc…. paul also has top notch equipment and it is in perfect working condition. When in the keys, Paul is the guide to use.

Just wanted to say thanks for the great three days we had down there last week. We had a terrific time. You once again did a great job of working your tail off to put us on the fish! As a relatively new flats angler I didn't realize how fortunate we have been to fish with you. For the second year in a row we saw so many huge tarpon and schools of monster bones and permit (look at the babies!) that I lost count! It wasn't until I had the chance to compare notes with other fisherman at the bar at Cheeca Lodge that I began to appreciate the experiences you have given our family. I'm still dreaming (or having nightmares!) about all the perfect shots we had at those big bones and monster tarpon. When my fly casting skill reaches your level of guiding skill we'll "slay 'em"!. Thanks again, Paul, for the wonderful time. Your enthusiasm for what you do, the fish you pursue, and the beautiful backcountry you pursue them in is infectious. And the humor, patience and professionalism you demonstrated not only with me, but with my two young sons made our days unforgettable. I'm already planning our next trip!

Hi Paul, I wanted to thank you again for a wonderful time out on the water. My father and I had an incredible experience, and can not wait to do it again next year. We will definitely be returning next year to spend a couple of days with you. You truly are an exceptional guide. It was a real pleasure to spend our first outing for Tarpon on the fly with a very knowledgeable, insightful, and genuine person. Your comprehensive web site, the pictures and video you posted for us were a generous compliment to the great time spent. It definitely made our friends jealous that they missed out on a spectacular trip

.Again, I can't thank you enough. Hope the lines stay tight, and others can enjoy some time out on the flats with you as well.

My Dad and I had a great time fishing with you the first week of June this year (1998). I hope to get back down to the Keys again next year. All those bonefish were amazing. Can't wait to do it again.

Thank you very much for the fishing trip on the 29th.
Alex and I had a great time and can't wait to come back and fish with you again. Now that I have caught my first tarpon and learned a little bit more about it, I can't wait to do it again. You had us on a ton of monster tarpon all day long!!!

Now to the memories over this past week. Having trouble even putting so many into format in my head. TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! The company, the place, the boat rides, that great water, dolphins, turtles, rays, sharks, and those fish. Educational and Unbelievable. I have done a lot in my 39 years, but this was spectacular. Three days of "visual grand slams" was worth the trip alone. Future hook ups will be terrific, but the chase does really mean the most to me. Multiple daily chances sure reflect your knowledge, patience, dedication, and will. I know what I need to work on, and will certainly do so Thanking you and looking forward to an ongoing adventure!!!!

.Again, I can't thank you enough. Hope the lines stay tight, and others can enjoy some time out on the flats with you as well.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the great time we had during our recent trip to Florida. Jim and I were somewhat worried that the hurricane would damage the fishing and leave us looking at each other for most of the trip down there. You however, proved to us that there are still dedicated professional people in the world who do their best to deliver what they sell and you did deliver.Everything about the 2 days that we fished with you was handled in a professional manner. From the time that we arrived at the dock in the morning to the time we returned. We received all this professional treatment and had fun in the process. We were comfortable. That was the greatest part of our whole day.I have placed your cards around the shops I work in. Hopefully many of my friends will heed my advice and look you up when planning to fish the flats. Jim and I are currently attempting to revisit the Keys in April/May and we will let you know when our plans are set so we can make arrangements to spend another day or two fishing with you. Hopefully your schedule will be open during our visit.Thank you for the great days you provided while we were down there.
