    Excellent day in the backcountry - 4/26/2015
    By: from Massachusetts, USA

    Family spent a full day in the backcountry with Ken chasing snook and tarpon. Excellent experience with an outstanding guide -- Ken was patient and knowledgable. We found fish quickly in each location and learned a lot while having a great time. Have fished with many guides and Ken is highly recommended!

    Wonderful Memories - 4/13/2015
    By: from Naples, FL

    Great fishing experience with Capt. Ken Chambers as our guide last week. He gave me and my 2 adult sons a wonderful learning and fishing day on the water. We all caught lots of fish thanks to Ken's terrific fishing knowledge and patient guidance. It was more than I could have expected! I'll fish with Ken again and highly recommend him as your guide. He is very professional and friendly. Great family memories for us all.

    Great Trip - 4/9/2015
    By: from Pittsburgh, PA

    I just enjoyed my third trip with Ken. He is the epitome of professionalism. Smart, honest and hardworking. On Monday I hooked up with a hog of a snook that dragged me into the mangroves and driftwood on the shoreline. A lot of guides would have probably cut the line and shrugged their shoulders. Not Ken. Before I knew it, he was maneuvering the boat closer to the bank. He gave me instructions every step of the way, while he managed to get the line out of the driftwood. The snook took off again for open water and we had him on board a few minutes later. What a ride. Ken is also great with my two sons (17,12), who frankly just want to catch fish. He's a great teacher and my boys know that Capt. Ken's rules are the only rules. Don't waste your time and money with guys who make big promises with no return. Ken makes the day worthwhile whether you catch three fish or thirty.

    10,000 Islands fishing - 3/29/2015
    By: from Philadelphia,PA

    Had another great trip with Capt. Ken Chambers in the 10,000 Islands last week. The beauty of the surroundings is amazing as is the fishing. Capt. Ken is a real pro, an expert in backwater fishing with easy going style. He is always prepared and keeps an immaculate boat. Look forward to hunting some Tarpon with him this summer.

    Grand Slam near Marco Island - 3/26/2015
    By: from Bonita Springs, FL, USA

    Had a super day on the water with Captain Ken Chambers on March 25. Jumped some big reds and snook in the back country then went out to try our luck with the large tarpon working the near shore flats. There was a two hour window where there were large tarpon everywhere we looked being super aggressive and we managed to hook up several and land a 100 lb. beauty on the fly. The day was topped off with a host of wildlife sightings including a large bobcat swimming from one island to another, a LARGE permit which we did not get a chance to throw a fly to, a shark we estimated to be 10-12 feet long, an eagle ray with a wing span of over 6 feet and a huge school of large jacks assaulting baitfish. An incredible day!

    Everglades flyfishing - 3/11/2015
    By: from Bonita Springs, FL, USA

    Ken is a top flight fly fishing guide who provides a quality fishing experience for all experience levels. I have fished with him many times over the past 12 years and always enjoy the day, regardless of wether we catch lots of fish or only a few.

    Excellent Fishing Guide - 3/8/2015
    By: from West Palm Beach, FL, USA

    I was in Marco Island for a business trip and I found Capt. Ken Chambers on the Orvis Fishing Reports. I'm glad I did because I had a fantastic time. He is an excellent guide who grew up fishing in the 10,000 Islands. The area is beautiful and tranquil. We didn't see another boat after we left the marina. Ken put us on the fish (I got my first snook!) and patiently gave me some pointers (at my request) on my casting, knots, tying flies, etc. I will definitely go fishing with Ken again.

    Really Outstanding Guide - 2/26/2015
    By: from Naples, FL, USA

    Ken is at the top of my list when it comes to fishing guides. I've used him for the past five years. He's guided me along with family and friends. He works hard to put us on fish and is very helpful to those who need some instruction. Plus he's a terric fellow...highly regarded by the south Florida guide community.

    great day in the 10,000 islands - 2/26/2015
    By: from Toronto, ON, Canada

    my wife and I went out with ken (our second trip with him in 2 years) and had a great day....through a boat ride south from goodland we saw a new part of the islands we hadn't seen..we fished a couple of different areas for different species and did pretty well considering the weather had been pretty cold up till a couple of days before...Ken is very hospitable, the boat and equipment top notch, and on both our trips we've thoroughly enjoyed the day.

    Memorable day in the 10K Islands - 3/30/2014
    By: from Virginia

    Had a business trip to SW Florida and I was able to book Ken for a day of flyfishing. A recent frontal passage kept the fish down, however Ken was able to salvage a slow day with some Redfish and Snook. Ken grew up on these waters, knows them intimately and works hard to get you on fish. He does everything you expect of a great guide. We are looking forward to getting back out on the water with Ken.
