Went on a mission in Key West to catch a Tarpon on a fly rod. With Bo's help I succeded. Bo Sellers was a great guide and a very cool person to spend a few days with. He knows the waters and the fish very well. He is laid back, non judgmental and a patient teacher. I will return to fish with Bo again. I highly recommend him as a guide.

First time fly fishing for Tarpon exceeded my expectations. Bo was very knowledgeable and showed patience as I learned. We found many groups of Tarpon in chains, and had many casts at fish. Once a fish was on it was amazing to be guided on how to bring in such a large fish. Hooked a second one just as large but it ended up breaking off after a short fight. Never having fished for Tarpon, I am now totally hooked! What a rush, its just amazing to see them, spot them, make a good cast, then watch them follow and take the fly.

This is my second year with Bo, he is an excellent guide, boat captain, and has a great disposition when your cast flies sideways, misses the fish or accidentally hook yourself or him. By the way I caught my first and other Tarpon with him this year and also got some great double haul casting instruction. Bo knows where to go when the weather is great or not so great. If you want a great Flyfishing experience this is the guy!!! I have next year booked.

I've fished with Bo for about 8 years now. I caught my first bonefish with him back in 2010. I then caught my first permit with him in 2011. Fast forward a few years when we went back to the keys with our kids and took my 6 y/o out with him. I caught several tarpon and a bonefish on fly. My son also landed 2 bonefish using live shrimp. Add to all this the tournaments he's won or placed well in, you can be assured Bo will not disappoint.

Had an unplanned visit to the Keys and luckily enough Bo had a day open. Got a few shots at tarpon and two very easy shots at permit. Also caught some barracuda. Bo is a great guy!
