2019 Endorsed Saltwater Fly-Fishing Guide of the Year

Capt. Duane Baker, based in Tavernier, Florida

Capt. Duane Baker sends a bonefish back to fight another day.

Duane has been guiding fly and light tackle anglers since 1988. He is one of those guides who are not happy till the angler is happy. He is patient and works tirelessly for each and every client. His list of return clients reads like a list of Who’s Who of fly anglers, but enjoys taking new clients to areas of the Keys they would otherwise miss. Duane’s reputation has made him one of the most popular guides in the Upper Keys, and has been a member of Florida Keys Fishing Guide Association as long as he has been guiding. Here’s what one client wrote in a review:

Outstanding time – completed a bucket list item – tarpon on a fly rod. this was my first fish ever on a fly! Capt. Duane knows how to get you in position and get it done – what an experience!
