Looking for a fishing friend

Hey guys, I am slightly new here. I have been fishing my whole life I am 29 years old and I live in Central Florida. I have a 16‘6“ Skimmer Skiff polling skiff and I am trying to branch out and get together to fish and make friends With some like-minded guys from around here. Since the beginning of this year, I have been exploring mosquito lagoon and Ozello mostly, but I have branched out to Jacksonville once so far and I am very interested in flyfishing now. I normally go out with the wife, but I really need to go out with some guys that are on my level and fly fish as well. I am new to fly fishing , and hopefully this winter we can get together and catch some fish in some skinny water. I’m open to fish anywhere, if you have a boat great we can take turns running each !

For anyone interested in making long term friends and doing some fishing while at it shoot me a message.

Well I'm out in Colorado, but I spend 2 months in lower keys during poon season. Poon is my obsession, but I also fish for bones, permit, snook, and always ready for jacks to swim by.
I’d love to fish the keys , but it’s a decent haul for me. Do you own a place there ? I used to live in south fl

Im from Citrus county originally, but I’m up in the Tallahassee area now, if ya get up this way let me know, and we can go wet a line for sure.
I havent been back near there since my in-laws left apalacicola. Have the fish moved way back in the marsh yet?

I think it’s a mandatory requirement for all new transplants to fish out there..lol.. But it honestly is a great area, with several different options. Also a great a place to donate a prop or lower unit to the fishing gods..😂😂
FMT card ftw

We have a fly club in Jacksonville. Great group of guys and we have monthly outings and meetings. Check it out! FCFF.org

I'm happy to fish either Thursday or Friday pretty much every week. I'm also new to fly fishing but the club has been great for learning!
