Rob Fordyce

Rob built his fishing skills like so many others — in the Florida Keys. But Rob differentiated himself from an early age, netting the MET (Miami Metropolitan Fishing Tournament) Master Angler award while he was still in high school. Rob’s guiding career currently has him working with anglers for both in- and off-shore fishing, spending roughly 300 days out of the year on the water. But it’s when you get Rob talking that his love for tarpon becomes clear. That thrill of tarpon fishing has been captured on Rob’s shows such as “Silver Kings”, and most recently "The Seahunter" airing on The Outdoor Channel. He is the only guide to have won all four major Fly Tarpon Tournaments in the span of their 50 year history.
