The Story

2016 Orvis-Endorsed Saltwater Guide of the Year

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great day.... I went fly fishing for a day with Captain Ken, and it was a great experience. I am an experienced trout fisher, but have been interested to fly fish in the 10,000 islands. We saw lots of great water, and caught many fish: snook, jacks, lady fish and redfish. Ken knew where they were, and was great at helping me to learn some techniques for success that are a bit different than those that I know for trout in fresh water. He even got me onto a tarpon... and the fact that I did not hook it is on me. I will fish with him again, and highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent guide Ken, a very seasoned guide (which apparent very quickly) was patient but to the point with my 12 year old son on our half day trip out of Goodland fly fishing. I should also say he was also patient with my father-in-law, as well as me, too! He put us right on fish, after netting bait on the first leg of the trip. Good idea—we caught plenty of fish; jacks, ladyfish, snook, redfish (drum), trout. If fly fishing isn’t working out for a person, they can cast off the back of the boat with a spinning reel. Another good idea. Along with the fishing, we also had good conversations between fishing spots, as the boat motored along. He’s a good guy, undoubtedly a good father, and I highly recommend him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding 3 Days! Ken is an amazing guide - one of the best I've ever had the pleasure of fishing with. He knows where the fish are, and puts you right on them. We had multiple, legitimate shots at Tarpon each morning, and plentiful Snook action in the afternoons. I landed my first 100 lb Tarpon on fly during this trip, and got two others to eat. Ken is also amazing at improving your casting ability, and easily breaks down where you're problem areas are, and addressing them constantly. My casting ability rapidly improved each day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great day Great day out with Ken Chambers. Caught my first tarpon on the fly, and learned a lot about salt water fly fishing. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly, and he worked hard to get me shots at fish. A great way to spend a day, and he's an excellent guide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Qualified | Authentic Ken was an excellent guide. He knows the territory, offered good feedback (I needed some) and put me on fish. When you're in a boat for 6 hours, you want to find someone like Ken who's personable and smart about his work. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Guide Ken ranks high amongst the best guides I've ever come across. My dad and I fished with Ken for a couple of days recently. I am an intermediate angler and this was dad's first saltwater fly trip. Ken excelled in adapting to our various skill levels while providing a positive experience for us both. I highly recommend Ken and am looking forward to fishing with him again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing trip Captain Ken took my wife and I out for a half day of fishing and it was amazing. We are both new to salt water fly fishing and Capt Ken adeptly coached us into some fish! We'd definitely recommend his services to anyone considering a fly fishing trip!
