The history of Everglades fishing guides will be discussed along with their role in attracting visitors to the area and building the region’s economy. Many presidents, sports figures, and movie stars were among those who flocked to this hidden hamlet to partake of one of the world’s best spots for sportfishing but they always needed a guide who knew the area – a tradition that continues today.
