I had the pleasure of fishing with Skip in May. I was fortunate enough to land my first tarpon after an strenuous 46 minute battle. I wasn't sure what to expect with this being my first saltwater trip. Skip gave excellent casting instructions and put me a tarpon when the fish weren't being that active. I'd highly recommend Skip to anyone wanting to fish Boca Grande area.

I have known Capt. Skip for over 5 years and fished with him numerous times. Capt. Skip has a wealth of fly fishing knowledge and skill. He knows where the fish are and always puts me in a great position to make the catch! His fly casting tips have also helped me improve my casting accuracy. I highly recommend Capt. Skip as a fly fishing guide. You will have a great day, catch fish and enjoy the company of a great guy!

I've been fishing with Skip for three years now, and I highly recommend him. He is incredibly knowledgeable of Boca Grande area and will put you onto fish. He is also an excellent teacher if you need some help with your fly-casting, as I have. Skip has gotten me onto big tarpon and redfish. Can't wait to go back!

I catch fish, learn something new, and have a great day on the water. Captain Skip has the right blend of experience, knowledge and patience for beginners and experts to achieve consistently good results. Plus, he pays attention and can guide you to catch a Grand Slam - just like I did last week!

You won't find a harder working guide than Capt Skip Zink! If there is a fish to be caught he will find it and put you in a position to catch it. The last fifty feet is up to you, but, if you need some help with casting he can do that too - he's a Certified Casting Instructor!

Fly Fishing for over 40 years, with numerous guides from Alaska, Canada, through much of the US, Mexico, and the Bahamas, I've enjoyed-endured a full range of experiences with guides. I haven't found anyone to work harder than Skip or do as much as Skip to produce fish for me. You'll be happy with Capt Zink!
