A Little About Me...
I have lived and fished S.W. Florida for over 40 years and have been guiding for over 12 years. As a kid I was fortunate to grow up living, breathing, sleeping fishing. Having a Great Uncle, "JOHNNY LEHR", who owned LEHRS ECONOMY TACKLE SHOP, (the areas oldest tackle shop and first fly fishing tackle shop in S.W. Florida), and now family owned for over 30+ years, allowed me to grow up around my passion, that being fishing. Now passing that priviledge on to anglers who are seeking their 1st trophy fish or 100th trophy fish is what drives me as a fishing guide.
