Capt. Rick the Fishing Guide

Capt. Rick Murphy earned his reputation in the waters of Biscayne Bay, Everglades National Park, Florida Keys, and numerous tournament trails through out the country. Leading his clients to world-class catches and prestigious tournament victories. One of only two fishing guides to win the four-event Keys Tarpon fly fishing series (The Golden Fly, The Don Hawley, The Gold Cup and The Ladies World Fly Championship). Ever since 1988, Rick has guided his anglers to grand championships in almost every major South Florida fishing tournament.

"I have the greatest job in the world. I get to share all my great experiences on the water with other anglers and lead them to the fish of their dreams. From Biscayne Bay to the outer parameters of Everglades National Park and all of the Upper Keys, the diversity of the fishing is only limited to an angler’s imagination. In Biscayne Bay we can chase world-class bonefish and permit on the flats or tarpon in the cuts, with the Miami skyline in the background. On these crystal green flats you’ll find some of the greatest challenges for light tackle anglers. In Everglades National Park we have the opportunity to fish the flats, shorelines, rivers, creeks and coves for snook, redfish, seatrout and tarpon, along with a host of other great inshore species. Sight cast to tailing redfish, throw flies to milling tarpon or work the shorelines for snook in one of the most prolific fisheries in North America. If the ultimate challenge of targeting and catching the largest bonefish on the planet are your goal, the Upper Keys are one of the best locations to accomplish that feat. Don’t forget about the legendary tarpon run that takes place every spring and summer as the entire tarpon population pushes up through the Keys and across sand banks and flats."
