Steve Hancock


Captain Steve Hancock grew up fishing the streams, rivers, and lakes of central Pennsylvania. Fishing these waters became an addiction and he began spending a lot of time on the water and worked his way into guiding on the Susquehanna River for trophy Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Musky, and Carp on fly. Steve then began exploring other areas of the world on his quest for the ultimate fishing experience. He took a vacation to Key West and experienced sight fishing for the first time on the flats for Tarpon, Permit, Bonefish, Sharks, and Barracuda. From the minute he stepped onto a flats skiff to jumping his first Tarpon he entered a whole new world of fishing that instantly transformed him into a flats fishing fanatic. He decided to then study and learn the art of fly fishing and made it a goal to achieve the coveted Grand Slam on fly. After only his 2ND fly fishing trip to the Keys Steve achieved a Grand Slam. A life changing moment!

Steve decided to make the move to the Florida Keys and after much dedication, study, and years on the water Steve now guides full time in the Lower Keys and Key West. He provides casting instruction and strives to provide his clients with a productive and exciting angling experience.
