and Ding Darling
In January 2006 I took a trip to Florida and spent a couple days
fishing the canals and backcountry waters for tarpon, snook and
redfish. I was fortunate to spend some time with Marshall
Demott, a guide who splits the year between Maine and Florida..
His web site
Fly Anglers Guide also has a number of pictures of the trip. Marshall
is an expert fisherman, an outstanding guide and an all-around good
guy - but then again, most fly fishers are, aren't they? If
you need a guide in the Naples, Florida or Fairfield, Maine areas,
give Marshall a call.

I spent a day with Pete Scribner fishing the
Ding-Darling Wildlife preserve on Sanibel Island. We saw lots
of birds, a huge saltwater crocodile, but only a few fish.
It was a great day to be one the water - good fishing, but poor
catching.for me - Pete caught a few, as you can see.
