Professional Fishing Guides who Support Spinal Cord Injury Recovery
Tighten The Drag Foundation Ambassador Capt Robert was a Tampa Bay area fishing Guide who enjoyed networking with other Guides and supporting their causes. The foundation recognizes those Guides who  have supported HIM in his journey to recover and our mission to help others with a better quality of life after injury.
Read Capt Robert's Story here...

The licensed Professional Guides below have donated to our cause, participated in our events or shown our VIP guests and Sponsors a good time in Tampa Bay during our events. Angling Guides are a special breed of people who love the outdoors, are conservationists, care about the natural habitats and future of the fish they enjoy catching and releasing. It is our pleasure to SUPPORT those Guides who not only care about wildlife but also about giving our Injured and their families a great day on the water to help them forget about their daily challenges and to make good memories again. When you are looking for a Fishing Guide from the Tampa Bay area, please call one of the Captains who participate in our catch and release fishing events and who take the time to HELP OTHERS.
