Capt. Shawn is an Independent Fishing Guide and offers more than 35 years of knowledge and experience. He specializes in Fly Fishing, and is said to be one of the best guides, hands down. He is also very talented in teaching anglers about fly casting, and instructions can be provided during your trip. He enjoys taking you fishing with whatever method you are comfortable with: fly fishing, light tackle, spin, bottom fishing on the reef, or deep-sea sport fishing offshore.

You can also simply explore the island, and go snorkeling or spear fishing on the reef. Whatever makes you happy, makes the Captain happy!

Areas of Service and Expertise

Shawn has a deep understanding of the elements: the waters, the fish, the tides, the weather, the landscapes. He is able to travel to any part of North Andros to take advantage of the perfect combination for fishing conditions. His abilities to get you to the right place at the right time, and predict that’s where the fish will be, is uncanny!

He also seems to have x-ray vision and doesn’t miss anything. When sight-fishing, being able to see the fish a mile away gives anglers great advantage; and while you’re out exploring, you will see lots more natural wonders that you’ve never seen before.

As a guide, he has lead many expeditions for marine biologists, conservationists, film makers, and National Geographic teams on varies explorations, science research, and TV shows. He has been working with Kamalame Cay, Stafford Creek Lodge, Small Hope Bay Lodge, and Broad Shad Cay Lodge.
