Hey Captain Butch!
First, I want to thank you for the day, the teaching, the great company...and a splendid job filleting that delicious redfish!! Chef Paul Prudhommes' Redfish Seasoning added just the right flavor!!
If you want to use this as a testimonial...you may use any or all of it in whatever manner you see fit...!
To all visitors to Captain Butch Rickey's site...what you see (read) is what you get! I found Capt. Butch while surfing the net for a good guide to fish the flats in Ft. Myers. Without much trouble I found Butch. I have to tell you, I've been in the marketing business for over 20 years and seen many a web site (in recent history). I knew from seeing and reading Butch's site that this guy was "a-lluring"; knew what he was doing. Didn't figure him for a "bait and switch" kind of guy. Seemed like a real "chum".(Sorry, I couldn't help myself there!!) He was the guy to take us out.
Well...do not pass go! Call or email Butch right now and make your date. Not only did we catch a load of fish (on a tough, windy day when our prospects seemed bleak and other boats were heading for home with their wells empty), we learned a lot doing it and had a great time to boot!! Butch is not only an expert on all aspects of the sport, including equipment (his fastidiousness is unparalleled by any Captain I've known), his ability to coach had us novice redfishermen hookin' em left and right before it was all said and done. (or else he might have made us swim back to shore...just kidding!!) The point is, all this and a great humor makes a fun filled day and a sense of accomplishment the standard fare with Captain Butch.
To top it all off, he took us to The Waterfront Restaurant at St. James City for lunch. You don't want to miss it for the food and the scenery. Engage Butch in other conversation and you won't be surprised to find... he's knowledgeable about more than just fishing!
"Listen for the sound of the drag...STRIKE!!"
Butch, use editorial license if you need to... Anyway, I hope it's ok for you. I do want to link you to my web site and visa versa. Let me know if it's ok and whatever else I need to know. If you have hints on how to get best exposure on the net, I would be interested to learn.
If you're coming in to Ft. Myers sometime, let me know. Love to meet you for a meal, a beer, chew the fat.
