Saltwater Rendezvous

January 13th, 2024 // In-Person Training for Our Traveling Anglers




Join us at Red's & Canyon River Lodge. We want you to have the best possible experience on your hosted trip with us. That's why we invite all of our guests to join us in-person for a day of clinics and advice for being both a good saltwater angler and traveler.

Discussions will range from Double Haul casting all the way to packing for your big trip and navigating customs. It's great advice from a well seasoned group of traveling anglers.

Attendees will get direct access to experienced saltwater anglers like Steve Joyce, Jon Covich, Joe Rotter and others who are willing to explain, help, and coach and mentor. Finish up the day with a cold beer and dinner at Canyon River Grill. Totally worth the trip.

I wasn't prepared at all for how fast things happen in the salt. I struggled on my first trip, but went hosted through Red's on my last trip and came to their Saltwater Rendezvous. It was beyond helpful, in fact, it was essential. "

We're excited to have several special guests attending this year's Saltwater Rendezvous at Red's. One is the famous artist Derek DeYoung. His work is world renowned and Derek is die hard angler and resident of the Florida Keys. With his experience and the fact that he owns his own flats boat... he'll have lots to share.

We're also honored to have our friend Cristian Rodriguez, of Fly Fishing the Run. He is an international travel specialist that has been managing the Cuba Zapata liveaboard program from the beginning. He currently resides in Santiago, Chile and we're thrilled to have him on site.

Last but not least. Jon Covich is an international specialist and the foremost authority on legally accessing Cuba from the United States. He is humble, highly capable, and his counsel will help make your trip the best it can be.
