Hawaii Born and Raised- Captain Ricks Hawaiian Roots run deep, from a fifth-generation Kama’aina family, he’s no Johnny-come-lately to Hawaii fly fishing.
Years of Fly Experience- Guiding fly fishers for over 30 years in the worlds top angling destinations. Working with the world’s finest lodges as a professional guide and lodge manager. Guiding thousands of days on Bonefish flats in Hawaii, Trout streams of the American West and Patagonian Argentina, Steelhead Rivers of Pacific Northwest, and fabled Atlantic Salmon Rivers of Russia.
Home Waters- Captain Rick caught his first Hawaiian Bonefish on a fly in 1976 and fly fished across the Hawaiian Islands for many years without seeing another fly angler (it was great while it lasted). It also doesn’t hurt your chances that Rick misspent much of his youth fishing the same bonefish flats that he guides today. Hawaii fly fishing is home.
Real Deal- Whether it is your first guided bonefishing trip, or you have fly fished for many years, booking an out-of-town guide is always a leap of faith. We put our local knowledge and years of Hawaii fly fishing experience to work for you to make for a great day on the water. Unlike many other “guides” in Honolulu, Rick is licensed, fully insured, permitted by the State of Hawaii, and a credentialed United States Coast Guard (USCG) Captain.
