Southwest Florida Fishing Guide

Capt. Matt Hoover

I am Captain Matt Hoover and I'm a USCG. licensed charter captain. I have lived in Naples since 1977. I started fishing Naples, Marco, Ten Thousand Islands and the Everglades National Park upon my arrival. I learned to fish while growing up around the Bass Islands in Lake Erie.

I'm endorsed by Pathfinder and have been an Orvis endorsed guide for eight years. I have invented some of the fly patterns that are sold by Orvis and have help spread the popularity of many fly patterns that are used on the West Coast today.

In 1993, I claimed the world record for snook on a fly in the 2-lb. test tippet category. I am a fly casting instructor and can help you become better at your game when you spend a day with me on the water. I have written feature length articles for magazines like Florida Sportsman and I write a weekly fishing column for the Marco Daily News.
