Welcome to AFishingGuide.com.
I’m Captain Steve Friedman, and I’m looking forward to guiding you to your fishing dreams.
Before we hit the water, a lot of my clients ask me:

"How long have you been fishing?"
I've been guiding in the Keys for more than 10 years, but I've been fishing all my life. Check out my Bio page for more info.
"What kind of fishing do you do?"
Fly fishing is my specialty, but I can show you a great time with a spinning rig too.
"What's your boat like?"
I have three boats to accommodate all situations: two shallow-water skiffs and a larger bay boat, great for taking out families or hitting the near shore patch reefs. Check out the My Boats link for more info.
"Where do we leave from?"
I typically launch from the Angler House Marina - a full-service marina with bay-side slips at mile marker 80.5. We can make arrangements to meet elsewhere if necessary. Just call me a day or two before the trip and we'll work it out.
"Where will we go?"
The Everglades, Florida Bay and near shore Atlantic waters are my typical fishing grounds.
"I want to learn to fly fish. Can you help me?"
Yes! A preliminary fly casting lesson can be scheduled on land before we ever hit the water. Once you're on the boat, the instruction continues and before you know it, you've caught your first fish on fly!
"Can I book a day just for me, and one with my family and kids too?"
Of course. I love to foster the love of fishing in the next generation. Between the fishing and Florida's amazing wildlife, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
"How can I book a trip?"
Check my online calendar, or call me at (305) 393-FISH.

This isn’t a part-time deal or hobby for me. I fish because it’s my passion, and am on the water building my backcountry resume almost every day. I’m patient and like to help all levels of anglers achieve their full potential – and land that dream fish! Tell me your angling aspirations and I’ll get you there. – Capt. Steve Friedman
