Fly Fishing Guide
My name is Jacob Beasley and I’ve been a Fly Fishing Guide with Fly Fishing Outfitters for 4 years. My goal in life was to make work something I didn’t hate to show up for, so I decided to take people fishing for a living, as fishing and hunting are my passions.
I got started fly fishing when I saw my dad’s old automatic fly reel and decided I would give it a try for some bluegill in my local lake in Florida. I HATED it at first, so I did not try it again for about 6 months. I decided I would try it again and caught a small bass and then I was hooked.readily accessible.
Besides Vail Valley, my favorite place to flyfish is Ozello, Florida. But Vail Valley is such a good place to fish, thanks to the quality fishing available literally in the heart of the town while there is quick access to more remote locations teeming with fish.
The best part of sharing my knowledge with others is getting to see the joy that I had when I first caught a fish on the fly rod. My one piece of advice to a struggling fly fisherman is, if it’s not working, try something different!
