In this episode, we have Kyle Schaefer and Alec Griswold of Soul Fly Lodge to talk Bahamian bonefish, permit, and striper (decidedly not the Bahamian type). We chat about their opening of the lodge in 2021, bonefish and permit fishing, and Kyle’s unique approach to ‘guide talk’ in the heat of the permit pursuit.
Kyle is also a striper guide in Maine and is on the board of the American Saltwater Guides Association. We have a great chat about striper conservation and outline what you can do to influence the important Amendment 7 draft. Public comment period ends Friday April 15th! Get your comments in and have a say in the future of the striper stock. Emails can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Amendment 7.”
Alec is the Founder and Executive Director of Elevate Youth, a non-profit whose goal is to empower youth to to explore the outdoors alongside mentors. Check them out to see how you can get involved.
