Capt. Ron Welter
My name is Capt. Ron Welter and I have been fishing the Everglades National Park since I was a teenager. I consider the Everglades National Park to be my warm Alaska. With that being said, I have been guiding fly anglers in Alaska for quite some time. July and August I can be found in the great state of Alaska and the other 10 months of the year in the Glades. To say I have one of the best jobs on the face of the planet is an understatement. I love to fish! I love the outdoors and being on the water. I truly enjoy watching my anglers catch fish of a lifetime.
I am a United States Marine Corps Veteran. Having traveled all over the world, I can honestly say that the Everglades National Park is truly a 1.5 million acre paradise. I feel honored and blessed to be a steward of such a diverse eco system.
So come with me as we venture into 'The Park' in search of future memories.
Hell's Bay Whipray
I guide out of a Hell's Bay Boatworks Whipray. In my opinion, my skiff is the ultimate technical poling skiff. The Whip can get me in the skinniest of water that other boats could only dream of. The ability of this boat is unparalled. Being able to fish the shallowest flats and backcountry bays to handling a chop and staying dry means a lot.
