Capt. Steve Huff has been a full time fishing guide for nearly fifty two years. He is the God of guides – the chosen one. The man who sets the standard for other fishing guides. The hardest working guy in the room or on the water. Steve was the first fly fishing skiff guide to be inducted into the IGFA Hall of Fame in 2010. He has invented and innovated countless tools and contraptions to improve his effectiveness as a guide. From de-hookers to bow platforms, knots to fly stretchers – Steve’s creative imagination and eagerness to push the envelope makes him the legend he is. Steve has passed his relentless drive and wisdom down to his two sons, Dustin and Chad, whom have become scary good guides in their own right. Steve currently lives in Everglades City, Florida with his wonderful wife, Patty.
We were honored that Steve invited us over to his man cave to talk everything fishing. We chat about fishing Key West in the 70’s, early fly designs, and inheriting his work ethic from his mother.
