Tampa Bay Fly Fishing Guide

My name is Rob Gilbert, I am a full time Tampa Bay Fly Fishing Guide.
I am a Sarasota native, 7th Generation Captain, and 3rd generation Sarasota / Tampa Bay Fly Fishing Guide.
I grew up watching my family run a successful outfitter and guide clients to fulfill their skinny water dreams.

As a fishing guide a day on my boat could start on the gulf beaches chasing giant tarpon, and end poling across the back country in pursuit of the skinny water dream sight fishing Tarpon, Snook, Redfish and Trout.
When the sun goes down try a heart pounding snook trip where we will spot hundreds of hungry fish ready to destroy anything in their sight. At the right time of the year our passes load up with hungry tarpon feeding on flushing bait and being swept out by the tide. In the lights of the bridges sight casting tarpon at night is a exciting thrill ride like no other.

Below is a video I made with my good friend Captain Matthew Cox of Extreme Backcountry Charters.
Were were Fly Fishing the Everglades National park out of Chokloskee FL in search for Giant Snook.
When a Tampa Bay Fly Fishing Guide  & a Chokloskee Fly Fishing Guide enter the everglades for 3 days things can go wild or be dull.
This trip with Matt was definitely far from dull.
Day one we managed a lot of micro snook in the creeks. Day two I managed to jump a small tarpon and Matt got the opportunity to at a snook that is a fly fisherman’s dream.
Please take a few minutes to watch the short video to see how much two Florida Fly Fishing Guides can have!
