Captain Ryan Erickson Hunting Permit at Sunset
Captain Ryan Erickson grew up in Washington state where he developed his love of the outdoors and fishing. After spending 8 years chasing his dream of becoming a professional race car driver he made the full time move to Key West to pursue another dream, making his living stalking the shallow water sport fish of the keys.
Though he loves fly fishing, he does not consider himself a purist and enjoys all types of fishing, for many different species. Night tarpon, summertime bonefish and permit, and shark fishing are some of his favorites.
