Miami Fly Fishing Guide: Capt. Dave Hunt

Miami fly fishing guide: Capt. Dave Hunt/photoMIAMI BORN AND RAISED, Dave has spent his life fly fishing its area waters. His obsession progressed from riding his bike and fishing local canals with his father's bamboo fly rod to pursuing game fish worldwide. Much of his youth was spent fishing with his parents — they would spend weekends on their boat in Biscayne Bay, drive to Flamingo or stay at the Kon-Tiki in Islamorada. Since buying his first flats boat years ago, his passion developed a laser focus on sight fishing in skinny water for tarpon, bonefish, permit, snook and redfish.
