Wow, guys, I sincerely didn't mean to open up a can of worms here...(pun intended!)

We have traveled the world enough to know that some of the best fishing, meals, experiences, etc have come from word-of-mouth recommendations from locals. We love AC so much (our 9th trip this time) and I was just looking for another recommendation or two since the person my husband used on our last trip wasn't all that great. (Don't remember who he was -honestly- since I rarely accompany him on flats trips).

SF Jeff- I agree with your post 100%. Being a professional saltwater fisherman means a guide won't have to spend 2 hours showing my hubby how to work the equipment or explain why things are done a certain way. Obviously, because we are not on AC all the time, even a pro knows a local will have all the important info needed about where the fish are right now, best ways to get into tight areas, tides, etc. I just really wanted to make sure we could find someone used to handling an experienced angler who may want to grind all day long for some big tarpon and not someone who is used to tourists who don't know anything about fishing or what they want to catch.

Please accept my apologies for stirring up any trouble in the previous posts. It wasn't my intention at all. My hubby has already spoken with Abby's wife (sweet gal) and seems impressed with what they offer. My hope is that the 5 guys will come back with great pictures and even better stories of big fish landed!

I am thankful for each bit of information offered here...it all helps!

Singing along to Jerry Jeff and Kelly McGuire while counting down the days already,

Susan

Good to know since this is where we are staying!! We've had VH plan many things for us in the past - I don't know why I didn't think to talk with them, too??

Thanks again,
Susan

SuzyQ: I'm sorry about the post. It's no firestorm. I don't know what kind of saltwater fishing your husband does, but the best recomendations come from his friends. It's rare these days to have any FF group, whether it's TU, FFF, or CCA w/o BZ experience. I fished with Abby and he's a great bonefish/permit guide. Nesto too, is a wonderful, if intense, tarpon guide. Your husband will need his "A" game for him. Once is the ultimate gentleman with more knowledge in his little finger than most-fishing and birding, and he throws a flyline with the best of them.
Gaz, sorry, I hadn't scanned down on your posts. Didn't realize you were selling from afar. I'll be more respectful of commercial enterprise from here on.
