BIO:

Captain Al Keller was born in Miami, Fl and spent his early years in Tampa.  As a South Florida native, he has become one of the most recognized and respected names in fly fishing the 10,000 Islands, Everglades National Park and the marshes around New Orleans.  In 1996 he received his U.S. Coast Guards License and started what he and many others dream about, fly fishing for a living. Captain Al now spends close to 300 days a year sharing what the mangroves and marshes around the Gulf of Mexico has to offer the fly fisherman. In addition to guiding, in his free time, Captain Al hones his skill and feeds his passion in fresh through saltwater tournaments.
