This is a recognition that really makes me proud.   The IGFA selects only six captains from around the world each year to receive this distinction.  It was published in their International Angler magazine for Jan/Feb 2009.

Captain Keith's dad said that he caught "Fishing" pox at age two and never recovered!  Fishing has been a key part of his life and led him to become an experienced captain, knowledgeable in all aspects of saltwater fishing and competent in instructing others in fishing.  Capt Keith has fished Florida's  saltwater  for over 30 years, with over fifteen years in the local east Central Florida area, including a mate and captain on offshore and inshore charter boats.  His experience stretches around the world, having fished around the US, Central and South America, the South Pacific, and the Indian Ocean.

Captain Keith also has an extensive background in flyfishing, being raised fishing for trout and salmon in the great Northwest as a youth, then carrying that experience into Florida in the 70s.  He is a Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Casting Instructor, and can handle anglers from the novice to the expert.

He now guides the lagoon system and Atlantic waters east of Orlando, specializing in redfish on the flats, tarpon near shore, and king mackerel offshore.  Often mentioned in television, magazines, and radio throughout Florida, he is heavily involved with the fishing community and has one of the top-rated fishing websites in the state.
