Captain Steve Hancock

My name is Steve Hancock and I grew up fishing the streams and rivers of central Pennsylvania. Fishing these waters became an addiction and I began spending alot of time on the water and worked my way into guiding on the Susquehanna River for trophy Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Musky, and Carp on fly. I began exploring other areas of the world on my quest for the ultimate fishing experience. I took a vacation with some family to Key West and experienced sight fishing for the first time on the flats for Tarpon, Permit, Bonefish, Sharks, and Barracuda. From the minute I stepped onto that flats skiff to jumping my first Tarpon I entered a whole new world of fishing and was instantly transformed into a sight fishing flats fanatic. That day my life was changed! Three more trips to the keys and I realized that the Florida Keys was to be my new home. These events lead to my presence here and spawned Key West Fly and Spin Fishing Charters. This is my passion and I will do everything I can so you have the best fishing experience possible as I did that day.
